To close the festival, we have one of the most exciting and original Latin bands in the UK. Tempo Feliz fuse classic Brazilian styles (samba, bossa, MPB) with elements of funk, soul, jazz and disco to create electrifying and unique grooves guaranteed to get your feet tapping.
Beccy Rork is practically a resident at the festival and we're delighted to have her back again! She is an excellent sax player, teacher and arranger whose melodic style and warm tone have been likened to that of Paul Desmond, Art Pepper and Bud Shank.
Behind Beccy are All The President’s Men, a hand-picked selection of local jazz black belts. Ed Morrey (drums), Martin Thomas (bass), Steve Gray (keyboards) and Steve Hind (saxophone) are no strangers to the EAC stage having recently backed Dave Newton and opened for Harvey O' Higgins at this year's Mananan Festival.
