Roy Forbes  with The Blue Notes
•    18th January    •



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 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.
