The Cricketers

“Digby has hosted ‘The Cricketers’ Jazz Bar’ in Westcliff-on-Sea on the second Wednesday of every month  for the past five years since 2015. His star guests at the club have included Simon Spillett, Alan Barnes, Tina May, Julian Marc Stringle, Roy Williams, Dominic Ashworth, Steve Waterman, Adrian Fry, Keith Nichols, Nick Dawson, Len Skeat, Spats Langham, Karen Sharp, Robert Fowler, Pete Long, Mick Foster, Daryl Sherman, Harrison Dolphin, Val Wiseman, Dave Lee, Zac Barrett, Brian White, Brian Masters and many more.Supported by his friends, landlord and landladies Carl, Cassie and Cristina Corralini and his house rhythm section of Tim Huskisson (piano) Roger Curphey (double bass) and Alan Clarke (drums) Digby says of the club: ‘it’s a tremendous part of my musical life and we have had some unforgettable sessions there. It’s made even greater by the gourmet menus of Carlo, the tremendous hospitality of his staff and the fact that the Cricketers have afforded us the kind of budget which makes it possible for the music to be free! I couldn’t be happier with the arrangement and hope it lasts for many years to come’.
