Tuesday, fans of the Birmingham-based trumpeter Ray Butcher have an away game – at London’s 606 Club.
Ray will be playing a mixture of standards and originals. The club’s owner, Steve Rubie, explains: “He sat in with my band here at the club and I was so impressed with his fluent and powerful playing that I offered him a date with his own quintet.”
And if you are not already in London on Tuesday, Ray tells me supporters can catch the National Express coach down and back. Apparently it’s £8 if you book 24 hours in advance. Nearest tube station to the 606 is Fulham Broadway.
There is more about the gig at here.
