Pee Wee leads a Never Ending Song in Cardiff

Pee Wee Ellis will lead the Cardiff leg on Wednesday 9 September of the Never Ending Song being performed at Pizza Express restaurants around the UK next week.

The tenor saxphonist best known for his time in James Brown's band will be joined by leading lights of the south Wales jazz scene including Glen Manby, Gareth Roberts, Paula Gardiner, Paul Jones, Jonny Bruce and Lara James.

They'll be taking part in the challenge to keep a specially composed 12 bar blues going non-stop for 168 hours across seven cities and 1,100 miles from Tuesday 8 to Sunday 13 September.

The band will perform two sets from 5 till 7pm and 7.30 till 10.30pm at the High Street branch of Pizza Express near Cardiff Castle.

All are welcome to book a table to see the gig but please note it's not an open jam session - there'll be opportunities for everyone to get involved in busking sessions in Cardiff during the day.
