Loose Change on the train and Dave Roberts Jazz at Alexanders.
Loose Change Buskers are a group of volunteers who perform and collect for charity. They sing, dance and play a lively set of classic tracks ranging from ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ to ‘Country Road’. Loose Change Buskers have become a familiar part of local events such as the Greater Manchester Marathon, as well as performing their own impromptu gigs on the streets of Altrincham, Hale and beyond. The charity band started by two Altrincham musicians in 2010, has now raised over £350,000 collecting for Cancer Research UK. They will be playing on the train both ways train (and making a collection on the return journey) and also performing a session at Alexanders.
The Dave Roberts Trio is a mainstream/modern jazz ensemble with a huge repertoire of jazz standards. The emphasis is on accessible, swinging jazz; the songs are a mix of swing, Latin, blues and funk. Each evening features songs associated with a famous musician or by a well-known composer. Tributes so far have included Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Jerome Kern..
