Carshalton Jazz Club's opening night at new venue in Carshalton College debuted Keith Nichols and His Rhythmakers; a fitting debut for the sell-out crowd. Keith Nichols the renowned pianist put on a lively show with a strong musical line-up comprising Mike 'Magic' Henry (trumpet), Alistair Allen (trombone), from Australia Michael McQuaid (reeds), Martin Wheatley (guitar), Malcolm Sked (bass).
Head of College, Janet Smith commented: "It was an enjoyable evening of Traditional Jazz, the band were amazing and the College's Nightingales Restaurant was full to the rafters with people enjoying themselves. It was a natural choice for us to host Carshalton Jazz Club. The banjo cake we created to celebrate the launch, showcased the College's creative catering skills. It all builds a strong sense of community."
