Jazz Hastings have lined up another great event for Tuesday May 5 when The Liam Noble Trio with Geoff Simkins perform.

The line-up features Liam Noble: piano; Geoff Simkins: alto sax; Dave Whitford: bass

Dave Whitford has just recently joined the trio of ex Sting and Wayne Shorter alumnus Jason Rebelo and is also a regular member of the Bobby Wellins Quartet.

Dave Wickins, who originally studied with Philly Joe Jones, works with Liam Noble, Harry Beckett and Bobby Wellins amongst many others. He also runs the Glamorgan jazz summer school, now relocated to Trinity College of Music in London.
