A Funny Valentine

Sat 3 June 2017 @ 7:30 pm

Crathes Village Hall

Saturday 3 June 2017


Mike Maran Productions

Suitable 15+ (Does NOT contain explicit content) 

It’s 1961 and Chet Baker is in jail in Lucca.

Voted best trumpet player in the world only five years earlier, now he’s doing time in an Italian jail for drug offences.

Italians strolling around the town walls stop and listen to the sound of Chet’s golden trumpet wafting through the prison bars. Chet shared his prison cell with a storyteller. The storyteller became his friend. Twenty-eight years later, Chet shared a hotel room in Amsterdam with his friend. That was the night Chet Baker died.

Only the storyteller knows what really happened. He knows the whole story – and now he’s telling it!

With live music on stage arranged and performed by Colin Steele (trumpet) and Fraser Urquhart (piano) this is an unforgettable evening of jazz, junk, and genius!
