The Dave Roberts Quartet pay homage to jazz legends at Alexander’s Café Bar in Chester every month. On 5 October 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 with guest trumpeter will be playing an exciting tribute to the Giants of Hard Bop Jazz including Cannonball Adderley (Worksong, Sack o’ Woe) & Horace Silver (Song For My Father, The Preacher).
The Cowboy Outfit will play on the train. If you like toe-tapping Honky Tonk music, The Cowboy Outfit is the band for you. You’re sure to love The Cowboy Outfit’s sizzling renditions of the best of Hank Williams, Bob Wills and Johnny Cash, with a few surprises thrown in!
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.
