Gambit impressed at CJC in October 2008 with their hot New Orleans music under the leadership of drummer Pete Lay, once a regular member of Ken Colyer’s band.
Cornetist Dave Waskett, trombonist Barry Weston, string bass and sousaphone player Roger Link, and regular reedsman Johnny Rodgers (the latter unavailable for this visit to CJC) have all been active musicians for many years, with their paths crossing as members of various bands in that time. This is probably the source of the band’s close understanding.
The less experienced but highly talented Chris Marney on guitar and banjo is the youngest member of the band, managing to combine a full-time ‘proper job’ with playing professionally.
Guest admission £8.00
