Easy Street – Porthcawl Jazz Festival 2016
Glamorgan Holiday Hotel. Tickets £3
Saturday 23rd April 5.00pm – 6.00pm
With their unique line up and sound, Easy Street present sophisticated swing, chilled-out bossas and cool ballads. In short – Very West Coast.
Alexa Dene (flute and vocals) brings to the table her experience of festivals and concerts with everything from big bands to small celebral groups.
Eurig Morgan (trumpet) has that right sound which has won him endless gigs from the UK to the South of France.
John Clayton (guitar) demonstrates genuine creativity in addition to passing nods to Jim Hall, Howard Alden and his old sparring partner Eddie “Guitar” Burns.
Steve Van Koningsveld (guitar) is a multi-instrumentalist veteran of more bands than he can remember and it shows.
Derek Howells (double bass), backbone of Cardiff’s Wonderbrass, has played with everyone from Dave Cliff. Claude Deppa and Jason Yard.
Cliff Prior, formerly principal BBC percussionist, has for years extended his considerable talents to the jazz field and is now an integral part of Easy Street’s success.
