About The Event

THE JOHN HACKETT BAND

John Hackett has been a much-loved and admired figure in the progressive rock scene since the mid-70’s; best-known for his flute work with his brother, former Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett on albums such as Voyage of The Acolyte, Sketches of Satie and Please Don’t Touch.

‘Progressive’ music in our sense of the word is based on rock-solid song-writing coupled with hot jazz drumming, melodic, funky bass, outstanding guitar in the form of Nick Fletcher (often compared to the late great jazz-fusion maestro Allan Holdsworth), and John Hackett himself – whose flute playing has graced so many albums and travels with such ease between classical, folk and rock.

Drawing on songs from John’s solo albums Checking Out of London and Another Life, the evening also features material from the band's debut, We Are Not Alone, the Hackett/Fletcher album Beyond the Stars and tunes for JHB's new release due out Autumn 2023
