Jazz Newsletter August 2019

Hello Folks,

We had a great turn-out for July’s Jazz to witness myself (standing in for Bill), Richard, Dave and Andy playing selections from the jazz repertoire. We also asked for suggestions from you, the audience as to your favourite tunes. I’d like to keep this going in a relaxed, spontaneous way and not too formal. However, should the request be written on the back of a ten pound note I’m sure that particular tune would be worthy of consideration!

We still haven’t decided on the band’s future line-up. We shall wait for Bill’s return before deciding anything. We will keep you informed.

Next Tuesday (20th August) we welcome back Enrico Tomasso with his Riverboat Shufflers – our own Richard White, bass saxophone, the guru of guitar Martin Wheatley and Trevor Whiting the redoubtable reedsman. I’m looking forward to it immensely, tickets are £10 from the Social Club

Enjoy the evening
Mike
