Opening set from featured band + JAM SESSION where instrumentalists and singers are welcome by invitation. RILEY STONE-LONERGAN tenor sax, CHRIS ELDRED piano, DAVE MANNINGTON bass & JAY DAVIS drums. UK-based Irishman Riley Stone-Lonergan started working as a professional musician in Ireland at the age of 16. Riley soon moved to the UK to study at Leeds College of Music. In 2011, he graduated with 1st Class Honours and was the recipient of a number of awards including the Dave Cooper Memorial Prize for Jazz Saxophone, John Scheerer Prize for Woodwind and David Hoult Prize for Outstanding Performance.
Selected as a Yamaha Jazz Scholar in 2011, Riley moved to London and began to work with various London groups. He was able to do a tour of Germany, a televised performance with NYJO at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms (including special guest Tim Garland) and was nominated for the Rising Star Award at the London Music Awards 2015. Riley also leads his own quartet and gigs regularly in London, throughout the UK and Europe.
Riley’s primary focus as a music creator is improvisation, the element of Jazz that brings him the most joy.
“…his sincerity, and his affection for the material, impress as much as his comprehensive technique.” JAZZWISE Doors open: 6pm, Music: 8-11pm – £8/£5/free to MU http://www.wegottickets.com/event/483748
