The Dave Roberts Quartet pay homage to jazz legends at Alexander’s Café Bar in Chester every month. On 3 August a Mid Cheshire Music Train will take you to hear them – with music on the train to Chester, taxis arranged to and from Alexander’s, ‘sausage and mash’ as you listen and more music on the train on the way back.
The Dave Roberts Quartet is a mainstream/modern jazz ensemble with a huge repertoire of jazz standards. The emphasis is on accessible, swinging jazz.
Dr Butler’s Hatstand Medicine Band is playing on the train. They present to you their good time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind.
How it works – book the package – and a train ticket
The Music Train is arranged by the Mid-Cheshire Community Rail Partnership with Alexander’s Café Bar. You will need a ticket (£9.45 + 55p booking fee) for the package from Alexander’s, bought through their website, as well as your ticket for the train journey, bought in the usual way from a ticket office or the conductor on the train. On the way to Chester the music on the train starts at Knutsford, on the way back it continues to Altrincham.
Alexanders website is at www.alexanderslive.com . Look for the Music Train in their June music listings and book the package online.
