Spatz & Co’s special Red Carpet Gala Night for Duns Volunteer Hall, Duns on Saturday 11th February 2017 at 7pm The Rotary Club of Duns has secured the opening night of top showband Spatz & Co’s 2017 theatre and stage concert tour ‘Midnight at The Oasis’. The band is now an 8-piece outfit with a number of world class musicians on board. Uniquely, every band member is a bandleader and an accomplished soloist in their own right, with special expertise that spans Big Band, Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz, Funk, Rock & Roll, and Latin-American. Gus Andrews (trumpet) toured with The Drifters; Malcolm MacFarlane (guitar) toured with Shakatak and Jamie Cullum; Dick Lee (alto sax and clarinet) is an award-winning composer, having written the Suite for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games; Tom Gordon (drums) has recorded with Elton John, gigged with Rod Stewart and holds the much coveted BBC Big Band drum chair; Erik Lars Hansen (bass) is an American who has played the Los Angeles jazz scene for a number of years; Gordon McNeil (tenor sax) has toured the world, held top residencies, and appeared in Las Vegas; Ray Elrick (keys) has an established pedigree spanning clubs and theatre; and Spatz & Co bandleader Roy Mac (vocals, guitar and piano) has a theatre background with radio and TV appearances to his name. The Duns show is a one-off special Gala Night, with profits going to the Rotary Club’s charities. Tickets go on sale in early January from Nairns Newsagents in Duns and online at beboxoffice.com
