Torus Torus

Torus was originally formed by bassist Mick Sexton in the 1980's to celebrate the music of that period. The band reformed in 2011 for a series of very successful gigs and so it's a pleasure to welcome them back to Boaters tonight. Their repertoire includes timeless classics by the likes of Steps Ahead, Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea. The line up tonight features saxophonist Gary Plumley, pianist Jonathan Gee, and Trevor Taylor on drums.
