Telephone Bill and the Smooth Operators

Fun-filled jazzy, bluesy swing band

This band hit the self-destruct button and split up in 1981 just as they were about to hit the big time, after a TV series and world tours. Luckily for us they reformed in 2001 and today are as entertaining as ever. Robb Appleton, Nick Barraclough, Chris Cox, Steve Reynolds and Paula Welham all sing and are all multi-instrumentalists, between them playing guitar, mandolin, saxophone, accordian, piano, double bass, and more. They maintain a sharp sense of humour – so expect a fun evening.
