2021.  Pete looks forward to performing for you again this year, once social distancing is a thing of the past and it becomes financially feasible to hold an event again. All being well, he should be playing for you again from July, provided that social distancing no longer applies by then – see the dates and details below.

 

THE BAND. The Pete Allen Band line-up for 2021 will be Pete Allen (clarinet, saxes and vocals), Roger Marks (trombone), James Clemas (piano and vocals), Dave Hanratty (bass) and Jim Newton (drums).

 

RESIDENCIES.  In 2021, Pete plans to have residencies at  Minehead (Regal Theatre), Newbury (Deanwood Park Golf Club), St Austell (Porth Avallen Hotel, Carlyon Bay), and Sidmouth (Blue Ball Inn, Sidford).

Dates for Minehead, St Austell and Sidmouth (Wednesday afternoons) and Newbury (Sunday afternoons) have now been arranged (see below), but will of course be subject to change/cancellation according to the Coronavirus situation at that time. Each gig will need to be pre-booked:  for details see each entry.  If numbers pre-booked fail to reach the necessary minimum, regrettably that gig will have to be cancelled and every effort will be made to contact those on the reservation list.

 

PETE’S SOLO MUSIC SHOW.  When restrictions are eventually eased, please bear in mind the following.   If anyone is planning a small garden party or similar social event, Pete’s Solo Music Show will be the perfect answer.  He is very versatile and will tailor the show to the needs and tastes of host and guests.  (See the Solo Music Show page of this website.) To engage Pete, or to find out more, please email deeparsons@outlook.com or ring her on 07501 821385.
