Mike’s achievememts are impressively wide-ranging - for instance he was Matt Monroe’s youngest musical director - and he plays violin, trombone, guitar, bass, keyboards and clarinet,

Mike’s this Sunday is guitarist Phil Capone and he said: “Apart from being a great exponent of the jazz guitar, Phil is a famous and revered educator who has written many books on the subject including what many guitarists see as almost as a kind of bible, ‘501 Guitar Chords.’ Recently moved down to the area - he now resides in Bexhill - Phil is a very welcome addition to the thriving music scene.”

Alistair Franklin will also play on bass and Nana Tsiboe on percussion.

“On January 31 my guests are two musicians at the extremes of experience: Pete Burden (celebrated bebop saxophonist well known to local audiences, now in his 70s but blowing as energetically as ever) and the outstanding 15 year old trombonist Harry Whitty from Tunbridge Wells who is creating quite a stir in the business, something of a prodigy he plays jazz trombone as if he’s been playing for decades. In addition we have the enchanting Rebecca Mason on vocals.”

The Jazz Breakfasts start at 11am, entry £9.50 which includes coffee and pastry.
