Allan Vache Quintet with Ashley Locheed


Allan Vache Quintet plus Ashley Locheed vocals - Saturday, February 17, 2018, 12:30 p.m. at the Vero Beach Heritage Center, 2140 14th Avenue, Vero Beach, Florida 32960

Allan Vache has been described as a clarinetist whose smooth sound invites comparisons to a young Benny Goodman, which isn't surprising since the King of Swing was one of Vache's chief influences.  It has been written that his playing can be downright blistering as well as warm and inviting and that he can make the most complicated pieces seem easy.

Vache has numerous recordings to his credit for various labels including Audiophile, Jazzology, Arbors and Sweet Jazz.  Vache has presently recorded twelve CDs for the Nagel-Heyer label, six as the leader.  Allan continues to work as a freelance artist appearing at many concerts and festivals in the United States and around the world.  His band includes David Jones on trumpet, Chris Rottmayer on piano, Charlie Silva on bass, Walt Hubbard on drums and Michelle Amato's vocals.
