GIG PREVIEW: The Button Band @ The Lescar
London jazz quartet The Button Band will take to the stage at the Lescar later this month as part of a UK tour to promote the release of their second album, ‘Emilie’.
31 May will see the in-demand band bring their highly melodic and accessible modern British instrumental jazz to Sheffield.
The band was founded in 2012 by guitarist Andy Button, alongside Andy Woolf on tenor sax, Dave Manington on bass and Marek Dorcik on drums. Between them they have worked with such luminaries as Gwilym Simcock, Kenny Wheeler, Mark Lockheart, Mark Anthony Turnage and Marius Neset.
The Button Band are a regular name on the London jazz scene and featured in last year’s prestigious London Jazz Festival.
Entry is £6, and more information can be found at www.jazzatthelescar.com.
