Jules Wakeham – Tenor Saxophone

‘A remarkable musician, Julian’s sense of musicality, timing and general
perception is remarkable.’

Lee Konitz (Sax legend from Miles Davis’s band)

Highly regarded on the London jazz scene, Jules has performed at
venues including Ronnie Scott’s, London’s Savoy & the Café de Paris in Piccadilly. He has performed on Cunard cruise-ships in the USA, appeared in the 2004 film ‘Shoreditch’ alongside Shane Ritchie & Joely Richardson, and been invited to join BB King’s Blues Band.

Carole Le Gresley – Nylon-strung Guitar

‘Carole plays music from the heart with finesse, integrity and above all taste regardless of the setting… a true professional.’

Alex Garnett, host at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, London

Carole trained in classical and Spanish guitar, and her first residency was at The Stanneylands Hotel, Wilmslow, performing to the stars of Coronation Street & Manchester United Football Club. She has performed for the BBC Antiques Roadshow Crew and the launch of the Ford Galaxy Car. Carole was recently invited to take part in Sky TV’s ‘Guitar Star’ show.
