GRAEME CULHAM RETURNS TO MILESTONES WITH TRIBUTE TO MASTER DRUMMER BUDDY RICH
Milestones Jazz Club kicks-off the 2010 summer programme of concerts on Sunday 4 July with a tribute to Buddy Rich featuring The Graeme Culham Sextet.Hatfield Hotel, Lowestoft
Buddy Rich was the archetypal swinging jazz drummer and fellow musician Graeme Culham has put together an up-to-date tribute to his musical hero.
‘Buddy’s Review’ is a performance of tunes based on the original big and small band arrangements that highlight the energy and swagger of Rich’s fifty-year career.
The sextet was formed in 2008 and its hard-swinging style utilizes a tight and punchy approach, full of intelligent, forthright improvisation.
Once described by the late, great Ronnie Scott as “one of the best drummers that I know of”, Graeme’s own drumming is reminiscent of Buddy Rich’s incendiary style, making him ideal to lead this young band.
Graeme has worked as a professional musician since the age of 17 including forming his own big band in 1983 and has been heard on numerous TV and radio broadcasts and with Snowboy on the Acid Jazz record label.
Graeme has learnt his art from working with top British and American musicians such as Buddy Tate, Dick Morrissey, Peter King, Ronnie Scott and Don Rendell.
The band’s full line-up features Graeme Culham (drums), Chris Lamberti (trumpet), Zak Barrett (saxes), Gareth Lumbers (saxes / flute), Dan Banks (piano) and Andy Staples (bass).
Listen to The Graeme Culham Sextet at http://www.buddys-review.moonfruit.com/#/buddys-review-audio/4533418734 or visit the club website at http://www.milestonesjazzclub.co.uk
Admission – £7 / £6 (concession).

Dockside Dandies by Peter Wylie at venues throughout Lowestoft from July 14 to July 31. Click on image to enlarge for full details.
The Dockside Dandies were young Lowestoft fishermen of the late 1950s/early 1960s who created their own fashion. Peter Wylie reclaims their identity and their contribution to culture from the era.
I understand there will be a parade of the Dockside Dandies on Saturday, July 10th. Details to follow.

This is the Lydia Eva arriving under her own power. She is the world’s last surviving steam-powered herring drifter and steamed back to Great Yarmouth on Saturday 15th May 2010.
Refer Lydia Eva for more details
Steam drifters once filled the harbours as they worked down from Scotland following the Herring. Lydia Eva was, unusually, also capable of trawling outside the herring season.
She is now open for visitors each summer. For more information, see here

Deadlines: 1 October 2010 & 28 January 2011
The Arts Project Fund supports activities and events in all art form and multi-artform areas. This includes the development and promotion of a wide range of arts activity throughout Norfolk. Individuals, community groups, professional and amateur organisations are eligible to apply.
The maximum award available from the Arts Project Fund is £1000, though most awards are likely to be in the region of £300 – £500 due to pressure on the fund. The Arts Project Fund prioritises support to projects and activities that demonstrate significant community impact and benefit, and which most closely fulfil the Norfolk County Council Arts Policy Objectives.
