After a sensational first appearance at Woolwich Works last year, saxophone maestro Snake Davis returns. This time with long-time companion and best buddy Johnny Thirkell on trumpet and their mutual friend, guitarist Mark Creswell.

Get ready for an evening of gorgeous mellow music infused with jazz, soul and pop.

He has played and recorded with artists ranging from James Brown, Tina Turner and Paul McCartney to The Eurythmics and Amy Winehouse.

In 2009 he had two consecutive UK No.1 singles with Pixie Lott, and his credits include Level 42, George Michael, Jamiroquai, Grace Jones, UB40, Cher, Tina Turner, Pet Shop Boys, Swing Out Sister and Lisa Stansfield.
