John Smith’s Jazz Giants
with Tom Hill & Neil Bullock
23rd September


(l-r) John, Tom & Neil 


Familiar to Silvershine regulars, John Smith is one of the best Jazz guitarists around and has 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.

For this special gig John had no trouble in recruiting an the best possible rhythm section. He has teamed up with Tom Hill (bass) and Neil Bullock (drums). We're just thrilled they could make it!

From LA to Birmingham Tom has cranked out bass lines for Art Farmer, Tal Farlo, Glen Campbell, Les Browns Band of Renown, Joe Williams, Andy Hamilton, George Shearing and many more. For those not in the know, he is also the voice of Tony The Tiger!

Equally, it would be impossible to publish Neil Bullock's (pictured above at Ronnie Scott's, London) CV here, but he's worked with St Etienne, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight, the BBC big band, Jane McDonald, Kid Creole...
...and, of course, Bryan Corbett, Chris Bowden and Andy Hamilton, to name a few.

If you love Jazz, be there!

Ari Hoenig


Drummer, Ari Hoenig is a major US Jazz musician. He will be performing at the Silvershine Club with guitarist Tom Ollendorff and bassist Connor Chaplin. This will be a one off Friday gig on 8th October @ 7.30pm.

There will be a support act, the Torin Davies Quartet, made up of Conservatoire musicians.

 Tickets are now on sale at TicketLab 

Thanks For Your Support
We've made our target!

So it's a big thankyou all round. Here's amessage from our organisers, Paul and Kim:

“ Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year! We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the generous donations we received towards our GoFundMe page. With your help, we reached our target in just a few weeks, and can now start planning for our big return in 2021 when restrictions are lifted! We have many exciting plans for the Silvershine in the coming year, including a live recorded album featuring the beautiful voice of Vic Evans, as well as many gigs to help keep jazz alive in Birmingham and give the city’s young jazz musicians a stage to showcase their talent!

Thanks again for all the love and support we’ve received over the years and we look forward to seeing you again at the Silvershine (hopefully) very soon!

Also looking forward to the gig and album launch for Dr Steve Tromans that we've had to postpone twice now due to the pandemic! Can’t wait for this one to happen!

Watch this space… ”
