Bev Pegg and his Good Time Jazz Gang come to Ludlow

Ludlow Assembly Rooms will be jumping to one of the swingin’est, hottest 1920s/30s classic jazz outfits in the land this month.

Bev Pegg and his Good Time Jazz gang

On Saturday March 16 from 7.15pm, Bev Pegg and his six-piece Good Time Jazz Gang arrive at Ludlow Assembly Rooms. They have been bringing great jazz and loads of laughs to audiences all around the UK since 1997.

Bev began his musical career during the skiffle craze of the late 1950s and was a founder member of the Blue Blood Jazzmen whose residency at Stourport Boat Club during the early 1960s holds fond memories for many people living in Worcestershire at that time.

He moved on to other bands, session work and comedy variety shows, radio and television and playing alongside people as diverse as Acker Bilk, Jasper Carrott, George Melly and Robert Plant.

After a break, he finally burst back on the jazz scene in 1997 with his Good Time Jazz Gang. Fronted by Bev on vocal, guitar and banjo the line-up consists of well-known jazz men such as Zoltan Sagi (Chris Barber Big Band & Bev’s debut album) – clarinet & saxophone, Tony Pipkin – trumpet, Rod Kelly – piano, Len Thwaites – double bass, Ken Wright – drums and Martin Veasey – trombone.

Bev’s congenial stage presence and his hilarious stories about bizarre family life give rise to an ever-growing audience of people following him to catch his next gigs. Bev’s audiences are always guaranteed excellent music and loads of laughs for a great all-round fun night out for the jazz lover. There will be a small dance area for those who want to get up and boogie along.

Organised by LARFE as part of their fundraising programme.
