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

Live Sport at the Club this Week

Dear Member

The first weekend of the new Premier League season was watched by many customers on our new 65″ OLED TV and comments were extremely favourable, I have to point out one thing though – watching on a top quality screen will not necessarily guarantee that your team’s performance will be any better than it was last season..

There are more big games this weekend, the highlight being Man City v Spurs at 5:30pm on Saturday. England play their return Rugby World Cup warm up match against Wales in Cardiff the same day, Wales are certain to be burning to redress Sunday’s England win which prevented them from climbing to number one in the World Rankings. You can watch what is bound to be a humdinger on our BIG SCREEN at 2.15pm.
