A big welcome back to Brian Smith who heads a band comprising 3/5ths of the 80's group Space Case which then featured Kim Patterson and the late Murray Mcnabb. He brings on guitar Dean Kerr and Chis Nielson on trumpet completing the lineup.

Brian, Frank and Bruce have a lot of history between them, living and working in London. Brian at that time was playing with the Alexis Korner band, The Small Faces (of which there is a book out soon) Ian Carr's Nucleus, Tubby Hayes’s last big band, Maynard Ferguson Band with whom he toured Europe, USA and England. He also played with Georgie Fame, Dusty Springfield, Gordon Beck, Alan Holdsworth and perform all over London including Ronnie Scotts, Bulls Head .etc.

The band will be playing some standards, Canonball, Benny Goulson, Dizzy, tunes and a couple of my originals...all very Retro as it's called.
