Thanks to the generosity of those who attended and some who didn’t but sent money, we realised £530 for Martin Horsfall’s benefit Jazz Night last Tuesday. There was a good turn out of 67 for this special evening. The guests advertised were arranged before I went to Australia and due to unforeseen circumstances they were unable to attend and for this I apologise. We did, however, have a great evening with Bill’s band on song. The highlight, for me, was Cyril Bevan sitting in on drums. It was only three weeks since I saw him performing with Dan Barnett’s band at the Merimbula Jazz Club in Australia!
Next up at the Jazz Club is the FB Pocket Orchestra in concert on Tuesday 13th November – tickets are on sale at the Club, £10.
If you follow the Pocket Orchestra, you might like to look at their web site to see where they are playing. Although they have spread their wings to incorporate most of the United Kingdom, there are still plenty of local gigs, (Chichester for one) where you can enjoy this wonderful trio in different venues.
