donnie joe’s American Swing @ Jazz On The Sands, Porthcawl Jazz Festival 2015
In the Summer of 2014, I was very excited and happy to accept an invitation to perform at 2015 Porthcawl Jazz Festival: Jazz On The Sands. One of my main goals when creating donnie joe’s American Swing was to perform at festivals, so this was just what I was after.
As this gig was in the book prior to Tamasin joining the band, this engagement was purely for the quartet.
We performed on Saturday afternoon in the intimate Studio Theatre in the lower levels of the Porthcawl Grand Pavilion. The remodelled and recently restored room has a real lovely night club style atmosphere.
It was great to Madge Simcox of the Rhondda Jazz at the gig.
Here is a nice video with some hi-lights of our set at the festival.
