When the acclaimed band Jam Experiment performed at North Devon Jazz Club in The Beaver, Appledore, in 2017 they were received with huge enthusiasm.

Responding to popular demand they will be returning to the venue on Monday, May 13 but this time under the new name of Bonsai.

Featuring highly-talented young musicians the line-up of this quintet now includes violinist and vocalist Dominic Ingham.

Dominic is brother of award-winning trombonist Rory Ingham, who also appears together with Toby Comeau on piano/keyboard, Joe Lee on bass, and Jonny Mansfield on drums.

Bonsai's sound is dynamic jazz fusion balanced with intricate compositions and adventurous improvisations.

The band displays a fresh, energetic and honest approach to jazz, featuring original compositions and arrangements.

No doubt fans will be treated to tracks from the new album Bonsai Club, due for release at the end of May.

All of the members write music for the group and contribute musical ideas equally, creating a beautifully varied set of music, and a very individual, cool and funky sound.

The gig starts at 8.30pm and is free, but a collection will be made for the band. For more information call 01237 421065.
