Tony Quinn has been a member of various bands he has introduced to Clevedon Jazz Club in the past and each has been more entertaining than the last. On Thursday 13 October Tony presents his own band - The New Washboard Syncopators - at the Club's regular Walton Park Hotel venue. And what a night that promises to be!

The front row of the band is made up of Chris Carmell, the cornet player and co-bandleader who started his jazz career in Liverpool in 1958, where he performed in the famous Cavern Club, before the Beatles. Mike Turner plays the clarinettist and soprano saxophonist and has a vast range of jazz experience, has a long musical association with the Midlands and particularly the Trumpet in Bilston, where he has a weekly residency with his own band, Swing Parade. Dave Sraidley, the trombone player, started his playing career in 1958 and has since played regularly both in Yorkshire and the Midlands. 

The back row consists of George Linder on banjo, renowned for his intricate solos and the newest member of the band. His musical career started  Birmingham in the early sixties before joining the Ken Ingram band in 1969. On bass is Rob Hodges who has made the transition from folk, blues and country music to jazz. He is a relative newcomer to the jazz scene, unlike his double bass, which bears the scars of a wartime air raid on the Cafe de Paris in London in 1944. Tony Quinn, the washboard player and percussionist is co-bandleader, formerly with the Ken Ingram Vintage Band and Central City Jazzmen, he is an admirer of the American jug and washboard bands of the `20s and early `30s

To entertain the audiences is the bands primary consideration, playing a variety of traditional jazz incorporating the "classic" styles of Armstrong, Oliver and the less common tunes from the repertoires of the Clarence Williams and Jimmy Bertrand bands featuring the authentic sounds of the washboard and other percussive novelties. The doors at Clevedon Jazz Club's Walton Park Hotel venue open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and its £7 'on the door'.
