Tribute to Buddy Rich

With the Pete Cater Big Band

‘Go And Play Up Your Own End’ was a phrase heard a lot as young boys growing up in working-class areas on opposing sides of the city, whose craftsmen built carriages of The Orient Express, aircraft, guns, tanks and fine jewellery to adorn the world’s well-to-do.

Sun 14th Mar 7.30pm Award winning drummer Pete Cater presents an evening of Buddy Rich’s music with his Big Band acclaimed by Britain’s original king of swing drumming, Jack Parnell, who said “A simply terrific band. Nobody could do a better tribute to Buddy Rich than Pete Cater”.

In those days Birmingham and the West Midlands was known as the workshop of the world, anything of value that could be bashed out of a bit of metal was made here. How times have changed, but thankfully the pragmatic Brummie and Black Country spirit and ingenuity remains.

Highlights include ‘Love for Sale’ and the classic medley from ‘West Side Story’.

This story about a group of neighbours fighting against the odds to re-build their lives is told with humour and song by some of the regions most loved actors.

A fishing village in ancient Ceylon is the setting for Bizet’s steamy tale of a tautly woven friendship, loyalty and forbidden love. Two brave fishermen recall a pact they made not to pursue Leila; a woman for whom both had developed a deep affection. When a veiled virgin arrives to pray for the fishermen, the real pearl remains hidden - her true identity. When Leila finally reveals herself, she pits the old friends against each other in a deadly love-triangle. The Pearl Fishers is an exquisite combination of emotional turmoil and pervasive sadness, containing a ceaselessly seductive score with one of the most famous and beautiful operatic duets ever written for tenor and baritone - ‘Au Fond du Temple Saint’. It is beautifully performed in English by some of the finest singers and orchestral players in the country. ‘Utterly glorious ... a heavenly rendition of the duet’ South Wales Evening Post £22
