IT’S a date that Halesowen’s jazz fans have firmly written in their diaries as ‘Spats Langham’s Hot Fingers – with vocalist Emily Campbell – return to the town.

Hot Fingers, who perform an eclectic mix of vintage acoustic music, visiting the red hot jazz of 1920s New York and sophisticated 1930s Swing, will provide the entertainment at the traditional Sunday night sessions at Halesowen Cricket Club this weekend (November 26).

Although just a trio, the band can be seen taking out two guitars, a double bass, a banjo, a mandolin, a ukulele, a clarinet, a tuba, a bass clarinet, and a pair of castanets from the van to create a truly authentic sound.

Emily Campbell, a regular addition to Hot Fingers, will add a touch of class with her plaintive vocals, drawing inspiration from the likes of Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald.

Trevor Jones, jazz club organiser, said: “It will be a big night for us, hopefully with a bumper audience.”

The evening runs from 8pm until 10.30pm and admission on the door costs £5.
