Neville Dickie and the Midiri Brothers
Monday, June 5, 7:30PM

Neville Dickie, one of the world’s foremost exponents of stride piano and boogie-woogie, will once again be reunited by the incomparable Midiri Brothers with Paul Midiri (vibes, drums and trombone) and Joe Midiri (clarinet and sax) for an evening of jazz to open the summer season at 7:30pm Monday, June 5, at the Bickford Theatre Jazz Showcase.  From the UK, Neville Dickie has made a name for himself on both sides of the pond with his Waller style of playing: a rumbling left hand providing counter-melodies to the sparkling improvisations on the right.   Today, Dickie continues to entertain crowds all over the UK and his band “The Rhythmakers” is always in demand.  He regularly tours in Switzerland, France, Belgium & Germany as well as here in the US.

Every concert for the past two years has brought down the house.  Don’t be left out enjoying these terrific jazz all-stars!
