John & Malcolm


John Smith and Malcolm Gibbons are two of the very best Jazz guitarists in the West Midlands and have played with some of the best the region has to offer including our founder Andy Hamilton MBE and Silvershine favourites the Steve King Big Band. Here they combine to bring you their own special magic.


We’ve just received the full line up and they've got Mike Green on double bass and Keith York (ex-Dr Phibes, Broadcast & Bently Rhythm Ace) on drums. All in all a truly wonderful line up!

This gig is a must for all lovers and players of guitar based music.

Roy Forbes  with The Blue Notes
•    5th October    •



Roy Forbes was Andy Hamilton's lead vocalist back in the Jazz At The Bear days and sang on Andy’s Jamaica By Night album.

Infuenced by the great Nat King Cole, he is a vocalist of exceptional talent and is a regular performer on the Birmingham Jazz scene. When Roy left the Blue Notes it was to pursue a solo career, and, a few albums later (one of which featured the late great US saxophonist Spike Robinson) he makes one of his occasional retuns to the Silvershine Club.

For this gig Roy will be reunited with Andy’s & Roy’s old band, The Blue Notes.


The full line up is:


  • Roy Forbes            Vocals
  • Tim Aman             Piano
  • Aiden Aman          Drums
  • Paul Foad              Guitar
  • Nick Wiltshire       Bass
  • Andy Gayle           Sax
