It was nice to see Andy Norman on trumpet at last month’s gig. We will have him back with us this month. I thought Bill was on form that night and the vocal interlude with Martin Sims (Gelf goes Gershwin) went down well.
Tomorrow (9th April) we are looking forward to the return of the tribute to Gene Krupa/Anita O’Day evening with Cool Heat Burning Beat starring the fabulous drummer/band leader, Steve Rushton and brilliant chanteuse Louise Cookman. We are sure everyone will be entertained by this superb group of musicians.
To the future – we will be presenting at the club, a charity Uke evening to raise money for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Headlining the evening will be the five piece Uke band, ‘Shades’, from Farnham. Also on the bill be Victoria who will sing and play the Uke. I will be on hand as compere for the evening and will fill in if required.
Hope to see you all on Tuesday
Enjoy the jazz Mike
