Her own deeply expressive tone and delivery has attracted plaudits wherever she has played…

A wonderful singer and jazz pianist…

Nottingham Evening Post

Wendy’s latest project is entitled Piano Divas and is a celebration of the female piano heroes which have inspired her and continue to do so.

Both Wendy Kirkland & Pat Sprakes have been coming to Stray’s since 2008 and seem like part of the furniture. Their mellow vibe extends beyond their gig and seeps into the very fabric of the room in which they play – a bonus if you’re in the audience!

Pat Sprakes is a superlative guitarist and double bass player who has worked with jazz greats such as Darius Brubeck, Pat McCarthy and Tony Kofi. Together, Wendy and Pat produce a sound that is mellow, swinging, harmonious and full of life.

Whether playing upright bass, bass guitar or guitar, he plays music that’s really great to listen to – with influences including Wes Montgomery and George Benson but also, very much into the ‘Bossa’ style.

Pat Sprakes has a long term association with luthier Colin Keefe and as such, plays and endorses Keefe guitars.

For the Saturday Sessions they’re joined by Stray’s co-owner Mat Short on bass guitar. Originally playing alto sax, Mat turned to the dark side recently and hasn’t looked back.
