The Lambertville Music Hall is proud to present at the Bucks County Playhouse, Cream drummer, Ginger Baker.  Legendary rock drummer, Ginger Baker, renowned for his work with Cream and Blind Faith, was once voted as ‘the musician least likely to survive the 60s’.

Now, four and a bit decades later, Ginger proved them all wrong, returned to the UK and formed a formidable quartet with funk and jazz giant Pee Wee Ellis, tenor sax, Alec Dankworth, bass, and Abass Dodoo, percussion.

The music is a healthy mix of Thelonius Monk, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, plus originals of Pee Wee Ellis and Mr. Baker, a challenging and fresh sounding program! Ginger Baker and Ghanaian percussionist Abass Dodoo provided a perfect powerhouse of rhythms.

After an extremely successful debut at Ronnie Scott’s Club in London in April 2012, with four sold out shows and delighted audiences, the band has continued with shows in Europe, the UK, and Japan. More UK dates are following from February 2013.
