Eamon Dilworth Quartet (AUS / NZ)

backbeat bar

Trumpeter Eamon Dilworth (AUS) brings his brand of New Orleans inspired grooves to CJC, with Roger Manins, Dan Hayles (Wellington) & Andy Keegan. His Trumpet is exquisite. The sound is entirely individual and at the same time universal. The Organ & Trumpet duets are haunting. A Trumpet not to be missed. His poignant horn is very melodic & then quickly shifts to a blast of the raucous vibrancy associated with Balkan Gypsies or Spanish Bullfight Bands. Eamon Dilworth - Trumpet Dan Hayles - Organ Andy Keegan - Drums Roger Manins - Tenor Sax Doors open at 7:30.
