Wimborne’s Tivoli Theatre is supporting young local musicians, with Tom Waters taking to the stage with his Rhythm and Blues Review on Thursday 15 July.
Tom on saxaphone will be joined by his legendary father Ben on piano, together with Robbie McIntosh on guitar, John Jonas, bass, Brinley Heywood –Snell, trumpet, Jack Thomas, drums, Harry Whitty, trombone, Johnny Ford, saxophone and Artie Zaitz on organ.
This is a celebration of some of the grooviest and heaviest blues tunes around. With the help of some of his closest friends and family Tom will be playing the blues he was brought up on whilst touring and playing with his father Ben Waters. The 10-piece band will be playing everything from Freddie King to Jimmy McGriff with a horn section and will be joined for one night only with legendary guitarist Robbie McIntosh.
Tom, who is currently studying at the royal academy of music, skipped school from the age of 13 to 16 touring the world with his father. He played with blues bands in Chicago, street bands in Uruguay, pop bands in Canada and stunning jazz bands in Iceland. Tom also featured as part of Ronnie Wood’s band at The Tivoli, and a year later on tour, to promote the CD recorded at the theatre.
The following week, 23 July, singer songwriter Hannah Robinson and her band will entertain the audience with her distinctive voice, nonchalant, percussive guitar style, soulful melodies and lyrics rich with imagery.
Pianist Matt Black, who lives in Dorset, is to appear on Friday 20 August. He delights crowds wherever he plays, be it one of his many comedy nights or playing classical piano at a garden party.
In the 20 years, and more, that Matt has been earning a living in the entertainment world, he has consistently altered his stage persona to meet the requirements of his audience, be they guests at a society wedding, delegates at a business conference or corporate dinner, or bikers attending a rally.
He has appeared with Richard Digance, Tom O’Connor, Boy George, Barry Upton, Brian Connolly, Gerrard Kenny, Dave Lee, The Supremes, Bjorn Again, The Bootleg Beatles, Bernie Clifton, Mud and many more.
Also a Dorset resident, Nick Capaldi and The Neon Hearts will appear on 16 September.
Nick’s debut single ‘In My Shoes’ hit No.1 on the Amazon Hot New Release list within a week of release and remained in the Top 20 Best Selling New Releases for five weeks. With Radio 2’s Bob Harris a big fan and a track from his debut EP making a highly acclaimed appearance on the MOJO ‘Songs In The Key of Paul McCartney’ album, it’s fair to say that Nick Capaldi is one of the UK’s hottest rising musicians. His previous band won both Wessex FM’s Battle of the bands and Weymouth Pavilions’ Best Local Band award.
In 2020 Nick entered the famous Abbey Road Studio 2 where four brand new songs were recorded for the EP ‘More Life Than You Can Shake A Stick At’ February 2021 on 10 inch Gold Vinyl.
Charlie North Lewis, Tivoli general manager said: “The last 18 months have been hard for all of us, and I thought it would be good to provide a platform for local musicians as well as the big names.”
