Pete Allen is back to play a 40th Anniversary Tour date in Oswestry on Friday October 19 at the Weston Clubhouse.

Pete first formed his band in 1978. Over the years he has appeared on many television and radio shows and played at many prestigious festivals and concert halls.

In 1992 he was awarded an Honorary Citizenship of New Orleans for his services to music and tourism.

Today he continues to be in demand, performing endless shows throughout the country and abroad.

He has been described as one of Britain’s most exciting clarinettists and as a bandleader, performing a slick, fast-moving show of happy, traditional jazz.

The concert will feature his full seven-piece band, including Roger Marks, who is rated one of the country’s top trombonists.

In addition, Pete’s special guest will be Ben Holder, who is one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK.
