Don’t miss out! There are still tickets available for the Phil Miller memorial concerts. Click here or the image below to visit VortexJazz.co.uk.
The Memorial concert for Phil Miller (1949 – 2017) will take place on 6th Jan at the Vortex, Dalston. A long list of over 20 musicians associated with Phil will come together to honour and pay tribute to a sorely missed musician by playing selected pieces from his many wonderful compositions. In no particular order these will include Alex Maguire, Pete Lemer, Mark Fletcher, Fred Baker, Doug Boyle, Simon Pickard, Jim Dvorak, Paul Dufour, Mark Hadley, Jack Monck, John Greaves, John Etheridge, Roy Babbington, Mark Hewins, Patrice Meyer, Carol Grimes, Sarah Gail Brand, Nick Twyman, Jakko Jakszyk, Trevor Thomkins and maybe Didier Malherbe if he has recovered from his injuries.
As there are so many musicians and so much music there will be two separate concerts: the afternoon one at 4pm and an evening one at 8pm. You can buy tickets for one or both concerts (which will be different) from the vortexjazz.co.uk website – look for upcoming events – Aymeric Leroy will be the MC so you will hear a lot about The various bands Phil has been part of throughout his long career and the musicians will be playing music from all these bands: Delivery, Matching Mole, Hatfield & the North, National Health, Shortwave and In Cahoots-the band that Phil led for 30 years before his death in 2017. A film company will be sending in it’s camera crew to film both concerts and commemorative T-shirts will be available on the day. It will be a very special concert and a chance to say farewell to a very special musician.
