Nicola Farnon is a classic singer/double bass player - whether in the Ella Fitzgerald swing or Dusty Springfield soul mould - and widely recognised as one of the classiest and accomplished jazz/swing vocalists in the UK and now making a name for herself on the international scene.
With her unique talent as swinging vocalist and double bass player she has accumulated many years of experiences and performed with some of the world’s top musicians - whether headlining or playing alongside such greats as Georgie Fame, Alan Price, Claire Teale, Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth appearing as guest artist at festivals and theatres throughout Great Britain and abroad.
Canadian multi instumentalist Piero Tucci is on keyboards and sax. "Piero Tucci is a jazzer's dream, as unpretentiously skillful on keys as he is on sax." - Sandman magazine.
