Savannah Jazz BandLes Brown writes
Sorry for the slight delay in sending out the latest programme. We have been up in Scotland for a short break - minus passports! - and on our return we are having major problems with water ingress in the Village Hall whilst a new roof is being laid over the Band Room area.
But 'tis now the season of "mellow mists and fruitfulness" and - having had a night off last Saturday - we are now looking forward to the mellow or otherwise sounds of the Savannah Jazz Band this Saturday 11 October. Always a most enjoyable full bore performance.
And talking of full bore performances, they don't come any more so than the following week - 18th October with the Carl Sinclair Boogie Band. The last two full tilt performances have been nothing short of stunning with an eclectic mix of jazz, rhythm & blues, boogie woogie and anything else that comes to mind! With the wonderful John Hallam playing perhaps somewhat out of character in a truly gutsy, rockin' manner, a first class session is assured. All this plus an extra special raffle on the night with the proceeds of the evening for the most deserving cause of Harrogate Samaritans. Look forward to seeing you there.
And finally in October 25th – Maine Street Jazzmen – a warm welcome for one of your favourite groups which hails from the North East. No nonsense, driving traditional jazz with the added bonus of superb harmonica playing from leader Herbie Hudson plus a sprinkling of vocals from Olive. Entertainment par excellence. Just the job to chase the “clock change” blues away.
No bar, so bring your Own bottle or whatever! Glasses provided
