May 2012 sees the return of the understated sounds of the Bev Scott-Brown Trio. This dynamic trio is a musical power-house combination of talent featuring Bev Scott-Brown (vocals), Andrew Ford (piano) and Wesley Rustin (double bass). Their style is simple, entertaining and musically top-notch. Their repertoire covers a wide era from well-known Jazz standards to some favourite unplugged popular tunes. Think Diana Krall meets Adele. For added flavour and variety, guests artists will be joining the trio on Saturday nights with the likes of Sammy Webber, Carl van Rensburg (China) and Mike Horne.
The Bev Scott-Brown Trio will appear at the Jackson Hall, GrandWest Casino, every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday during May 2012 from 21h00 onwards. Entry is free
