You can pay to sing with the band (extra if you want to sing Summertime) at a charity jazz concert taking place at the Bull’s Head on Strand on the Green this month.

Chiswick-based jazz saxophonist is holding the one off event with proceeds going to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity a cause which is also supported by the venue.

Entry is free and an evening of jazz and blues standards are promised with funds raised by charging for requests or for the opportunity to sing on stage. Normally this will be just £5 but if you want to sing Summertime that will be £20.

Eric will be joined by guitarist Max Brittain and ex-Strand on the Green schoolboy Nigel Fox.

He organised the evening as a tribute to the Macmillan nurses and staff at Charing Cross Hospital, in particular Dr. Jonathan Dunne the plastic surgeon who managed to save one of his fingers after he was originally told it would have to be amputated when a cancerous melanoma was found. It is only because of the man’s skill that Eric is still able to play.

The event takes place on Saturday 23 October from 8.30pm to 11pm.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
