There's an extra special Easter Sunday concert at Herts Jazz Club in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.
Kevin Fitzsimmons is this week’s star performer in Screen 2 of the Garden City Cinema/Hawthorne Theatre complex in Welwyn Garden City.
Described by Jazzwise as “a new star to follow”, the charismatic singer/songwriter and his band pay tribute to Cannonball Adderley’s albums with Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson (Cleanhead & Cannonball) and Ernie Andrews (Live Session!) in their the first set.
The second set will feature the kind of originals, standards and new renditions of contemporary anthems that impressed the audience on their last visit to Herts Jazz Club.
UK Vibe said Kevin has “a voice that can be adapted to both blues and jazz idioms”, while Marlbank noted “he is a thoroughbred jazz singer and can even swing a superior rock song”.
Jazzwise Magazine described Kevin as “reminiscent of Kurt Elling in that Fitzsimmons isn’t afraid to nonchalantly wander off the melody line while still capturing the song’s essence”.
Joining Kevin Fitzsimmons at Herts Jazz will be Steve Fishwick on trumpet, Leon Greening on piano, Adam King on bass and Matt Fishwick on drums.
Advance tickets cost £3 students, £10 members, £13 concessions and £14 full.
On the night, walk-ups are £5 students, £12 members, £15 concessions and £16 full.
