Dear Jazzers,

We have a real treat for all Western Swing fans this month. Lynette Morgan will be gracing the stage at next Tuesday’s Jazz night. Here’s how the evening will pan out.

Bill’s Dixie Demons will play the first set at 8pm followed by Lynette complemented by Gary Boller on bass and our very own Dave Doel on guitar. Dave tells me he was in Lynette’s group when he was 12! After the Naffle we’ll have a jam with Lynette being augmented by Bill’s band. I’m looking forward to the evening.

Finally, don’t forget your tickets for the Tony Jacob’s Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra on the 24th July.

Dates for the diary
Tuesday 24th July 8pm – Tony Jacobs and the Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra

Keep Jazzing,

Jazz Newsletter May 2018

Great to see all the jazz fans out in force for The Temperance Seven last Sunday. Fresh? from their resounding success at the Nailsworth Festival the previous night. The ageless, ageing antiquarians acquitted themselves with a great display of hot, toe-tapping terpsichordian tom-foolery that had the audience on their feet screaming for more at the end of this humourous and ‘corpse’ ridden performance.

Beware, they will be back!

Back to the near present. Our monthly jazz next Tuesday 29th May continues with the resident band – Binkie’s Dixie Demons and could feature some Bill-crooning with Mike after their well received performance at the Marie Curie Charity Concert last weekend.

Finally we must look forward to July when the club presents Tony Jacobs and the Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra. The band went down so well last year we had to have them back.

Tickets will be available from the club on Tuesday priced at £15 for this very entertaining big band

Keep jazzing Mike

Jazz Club Newsletter – April 2018

Time…… 1961 is it really that long ago since the Temperance Seven sat atop of the British Record Charts with a George Martin produced single of “You, You’re driving me crazy”?
Time…. did I imagine it or did Colonel Hitchcock-Galloway really get his braces caught in the escalator at the Café Royal? – some catapult!
Time … Christopher Buckley and his rampant troupe of alchominstrels continue to tour The Seven Seas, flying the flag and promoting all things British.
Time …. 8pm Sunday 20th May 2018 ….. Grayshott Social Club ….. tickets available from the club 01428 604041 ….
Time…. Next Tuesday 24th April …. is our monthly Jazz Club and features as usual Binky’s Dixie Demons ( Not Biggest Disagreements) starring the Balham nightingale himself – Bill Gyford. It promises to be a good evening now the weather has turned and we shrug off the shackles of winter.

A mention also that Bill and the gang will be in attendance at this year’s Firkin Fest beer festival on October 19th. The band will be featured in an ‘unplugged set’.  Whether this means they will be leaving their hearing aids at home has yet to be determined.

Enjoy the jazz
Mike

Francis Verity

Sadly I have to inform you that I have been notified of the death on the 31st March  of one of our Life Members, Francis Verity. Francis lived for many years in Hill Road and was a popular and long-time member of the Club, in particular he was an enthusiastic rugby supporter and his sparring with the late Richard Proctor with regards to the finer points of Welsh and All Blacks rugby were always entertaining. Although moving away some years ago Francis kept in touch and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Membership Renewals – Last Reminder

Our membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December, Club Rule (3) states that any member who has not paid the subscription by 1st February shall be ‘considered in arrears’ and if not paid by 1st March that person shall cease to be a Club member and lose access to membership benefits.

Membership cards of non-renewed members will be deactivated on the 31st March, this means you will no longer earn loyalty points on purchases across the bar (currently worth 10%) and will lose access to accounts and tab facilities until the renewal fee is paid. In addition you will be liable to a ‘guest fee’ of £1 per visit.

Reactivating cards cannot be done immediately over the bar and you will have to wait until the next working day after the renewal fee has cleared. If you have special reasons for not being able to pay or need more time please let us know.

Memberships can be renewed at the bar or online – e-mail the Club for our bank details.
