No surprise that Mike Smith and Ginger Tunes Quartet return to Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues on the 12th July after a brilliant gig only seven months ago.

Mike, a saxophonist, says he is ‘musically promiscuous’ and you guessed it, Ginger! He has been working with some of the worlds biggest artists, including Elkie Brooks, ABC, Heather Small, Sam Brown, Tavares, Sandi Thom, Ian Paice, The Muffin Men, Craig David and Kid Creole as a sideman over the past decade.

In 2016, he was asked to work alongside the international brand CREAM as their sax and keys player for the CREAM CLASSICS tour in 2016-2018 with K-Klass and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

A musician from the age of 10, he went onto study at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, where he now teaches saxophone. His diverse and wide ranging experience have given him kudos amongst his peers and he has become one of the most sought after sax players in the area.

Ginger Tunes is Mike’s own project, formed in 2010 and calling upon his experiences as a touring musician, culminating in a bonfire of sounds and smells for everyone to enjoy. The band has four albums out, and is a regular at jazz clubs & festivals across the country. Will be a hot night at RVJ&B’s July gig!

Line-up:  Mike Smith - Sax/Keys; JJ Rio - Bass; Tom Stichbury - Guitar; Jonathan Irving - Drums.
