John Hemming & The Sisters of Jazz

John Hemming & The Sisters Of Jazz 2

John Hemming and the Sisters of Jazz played for MPs, Peers, and the national and regional media at their debut gig at the Liberal Democrat Conference before making their first appearance at the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival in 2012. At one time John was a drummer with a heavy metal group, but of more relevance to the festival is his ability as a jazz pianist. As well as the Sisters of Jazz he has played with the John Patrick Quartet and the late Andy Hamilton and the Blue notes. Though limited as an MP by his need to put constituency duties first, he is often to be found sitting in at gigs at the ICC in Birmingham and The Drum. He also performed at the Macmillan Cancer Relief Palace of Varieties event with Lord Anthony Colwyn‘s band in 2010
