First event of the year was Jazz at the Olympus Restaurant in Bolton in February and featured Cuba Libra.

Following our immensely successful Christmas Special, Live from Worktown continued its partnership with the Olympus Restaurant to bring this  consistently popular Latin band, Cuba Vida. Winter blues were banished with a big serving of rhythm from Rio to Havana. In the hands of the charismatic Jesus Moreau Batallan (keyboards), Enrico Marchesi (flugelhorn) and Pete Williams (percussion).
