A gloomy, overcast evening turned glorious as we travelled along the Mid Cheshire line on 15 August 2012 en route to Alexanders in Chester, listening to a group of young musicians and their string quartet ‘Dmitri’. 18 clients plus regular passengers on the 18.46 from Altrincham were treated to an eclectic mix of music including classical, pop and even rock played on violins and a cello (I have never heard Guns and Roses sound so classical).

The evening continued at Alexanders Jazz Bar in Chester were clients were fed and watered and listened to a four piece jazz band ‘The Tim Franks Quartet’ whist tucking into Bangers and Mash.

The return journey to Altrincham was a joy, with Dmitri treating the passengers to almost an hour of popular songs from the Beatles, Elbow, Queen and many more, mixed in with more classical pieces. Everyone who attended had a fantastic evening and the band, who were superb throughout, enjoyed the evening immensely.

    Dmitri sound excellent Phill – the Jazz trains are a great original night out. A good way to have a night out in Chester without the car with original musicians, good food and the scenic Mid Cheshire Line. Why not try one?
