Winter drawers on but thankfully no snow in our area (yet!).
The Jazz in Grayshott continues to thrive and at last month’s Jazz Club 60 hardy souls turned out to experience a great night of traditional jazz. Bill, who was in great form, and bassist Dave welcomed Andy Woon, Tim Asson and Graham Collicott back and were able to provide a night of swing, hot Jazz and humour. This month’s Jazz line-up features again your overseas correspondent Richard White and cornet crony Andy Norman. I will be in attendance to ensure Queensbury rules.
Our next concert is on 10th March and stars the Stringbusters. A trio featuring our very own Dave Doel, country singer Lynette Morgan and bassist Gary Boller. It promises to be a great night of Western swing with various guests.
I know it is not strictly Jazz but I believe Grayshotters have very eclectic tastes when it comes to music. I include Grayshott Concerts and the Folk Club as well as our own Jazz Club. I’ve had many requests for Dave to come with his band, popular on both sides of the pond, to entertain us and for us to have the chance to see the other side of Dave.
