9 October/6 November/18 December
We welcome ‘The King of The Keyboards’, Scarborough Spa’s resident Organist Howard Beaumont with his trio Easy Street. Howard is joined by vocalist Roger Maughan and double bassist Bob Malinowski to play some of the finest standards old and new, chosen from the music of Tony Bennett, Matt Munro, Oscar Peterson, Stevie Wonder and many more.
Easy-on-the-ear, yet exciting arrangements with just a hint of jazz. These three musicians have come together after working worldwide on cruise ships, in concert halls and theatres, to play the kind of music that they really enjoy.
