THE MAYOR OF KETTERING PRESENTS HER FAREWELL CONCERT

WITH GPQ PART OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE’S LONG ESTABLISHED GINGER PIG BAND

Ginger Pig is a Northampton based band that started in the town’s Black Bottom Jazz Club. The band has travelled worldwide playing at Jazz & Blues festivals and important social events, and has now completed some 100 overseas tours.

Ginger Pig plays Jazz & Blues with a New Orleans flavour, which embraces a time span from Louis Armstrong through to Fats Domino.

Co-founders, the Richardsons brothers, still play regularly as key members of the Ginger Pig in one of their own venues, Auntie Ruth’s in Northampton town centre. Finlay Milne has been playing lead trumpet since 1988 when he was a 24 year old. Ginger Pig, besides being influenced by the music of London in the “swinging 60’s”, has had a long term connection with New Orleans, Louisiana.

The New Orleans connection has resulted in Alton Purnell, Louis Nelson, Kid Thomas Valentine, Don Ewell, Kid Sheik Cola, Freddie Kohlman, Freddie Lonzo, Tuba Fats, Trumpet Black, Glen David Andrews, Sam Lee, Sammy Rimington & many other Jazz legends performing and touring with the band.

GPQ is the cut down version of the band but inches above its weight with brass, keyboards,guitar, and drums plus bags of fun and friendliness.

GPQ played to a sell out crowd at the Mayor’s first fundraising event in her year of office and now returns to play at her final and farewell fundraiser.
