GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS will be our band tomorrow, Friday, 29th NOVEMBER 2019. The guys in the band are (obviously) ‘Kid’ GEORGE on trombone and with him will be PETER LEONARD on trumpet and ALAN CRESSWELL on clarinet & sax. Then we have our engine boys, JOHN SIRET on double bass, ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT is on banjo & vocals, plus again, KEITH GRANT playing drums. Bill Finch is still not quite well enough to make the journey (hope you are feeling better soon Bill – Farnborough wishes you well). We endeavour to bring you great music at our club, but we do need punters to enjoy themselves. So where are you all lately, the club needs you. (sounds like ‘Your Country Needs You’ ha.) Diane and Keith – your hosts.
HERE IS AN URGENT MESSAGE: Unfortunately, the ‘Jazz Guide Magazine’ have advertised the band appearing in the week before the Christmas party (Friday 13th December 2019) as being Mike Barry’s band, which is incorrect. It is definitely BARRY PULSER’S SUPER SIX. They have it correct in the magazine’s website, but not their magazine, quite a conundrum! As many of you know, Barry has had a stroke, so we don’t want him (or the band) to worry, IT WILL BE BARRY PALSER’S BAND. We all wish (& ‘will’) both Bridget (who has also had an operation) and Barry both, a speedy recovery, we want Barry to get well enough for him to return to playing here again as soon as possible.
ALSO, as you will see, we all make mistakes! Unfortunately, I failed to add our Christmas Party entrance fee in both Just Jazz and Jazz Guide magazines, thereby it seems to appear as £10. I must apologise, but the Christmas party is £15, to allow us to pay a better fee to whoever is playing (this year is ‘MARDI GRAS JAZZBAND’). Obviously, jazz bands have never received a much-deserved fee as bands obtain in other genres of music. In a very small way, Christmas is a time when everyone can show their appreciation. Bands can earn far more if they played for Corporate Companies’ Christmas parties, but love to see your smiling faces. At this point, can I ask you to reserve a booking before-hand, if possible, please. Our landline is out of commission, so please call 07704190009, or come to club and tell me, thanks. Diane xx
I just can’t believe it’s Friday already tomorrow. How time rushes on and here I am again to tell you who is on for you this week. Anyway, we have GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS back to play for us (Friday, 20th September 2019) at our FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB. Trombone playing band leader, GEORGE has booked to join him, PETER LEONARD playing trumpet, with TIM HUSKISSON on clarinet & sax, JOHN SIRET on double bass and ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT on banjo & vocals. Bill Finch is still not feeling well enough to venture down to our little club, so George has asked Keith (my KEITH GRANT) to play drums… Once again, I feel confident you will all come charging through the doors to enjoy a pint or three, maybe have a dance or two and tap your feet all evening to their wonderful jazz rhythms. So let’s be having you. Your hosts Diane and Keith
I have uploaded some new photos to Newsletter of George’s gig, dated and taken 12th April 2019, so please take a look, but having trouble – sorry, will AGAIN have to leave it for another time!!!!!
We’re certainly expecting a humdinger with GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS on Friday, 2nd AUGUST 2019. What a band our trombone playing ‘Kid’ has planned to be with him (not that any of his band members aren’t anything but good). However, DENNY ISLETT is back playing trumpet and what a player – aye! Plus, you know what I think of TIM HUSKISSON, he’s playing clarinet & sax. JOHN SIRET is playing double bass, ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT is on banjo (& brilliant vocals), plus KEITH GRANT will be playing drums – yes back again this week (unfortunately, sorry to mention, but Bill Finch is feeling ‘under the weather’ just now). Mentioning weather, small flying ants are out tonight – covering my car, so probably means hot weather likely). Come and have a drink tomorrow night to keep you ‘happy’ and hydrated and at the same time, enjoy the great music likely at our club. Diane and Keith – your hosts. P.S., so sorry, no time to sort photos again, please look back at previous newsletters of the band hmmm.
Hey guys and dolls, come on over and visit us – here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent). We have heard we are ‘Having a Heatwave’. At the same time, you can say hi to GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN and his ALL STARS. They are playing for us this Friday, 14th JUNE 2019. We want a special turn-out this Friday – why? Well just to celebrate a sunny June (just think positive – we’ve had enough rain, wouldn’t you say?). Anyway, GEORGE’s Stars are to be PETER LEONARD playing trumpet, TIM HUSKISSON playing clarinet & sax, JOHN SIRET playing double bass, ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT playing banjo, plus BILL FINCH is to be on drums. Oh yes, we have a new Dutch beer called Amstell bier Lager, so try it out on Friday. Diane and Keith
It’s GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS playing for us this Friday, 12th April 2019, here at our FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB. Did I hear you call out yippee, in delight? Of course, because our ‘Kid’, GEORGE has DENNY ISLETT on trumpet, TIM HUSKISSON on clarinet &sax, JOHN SIRET on double bass, ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT on banjo &vocals and BILL on drums. George usually has a great big smile on his face and of course the reason is because he knows these guys with him, will most definitely help him to bring some great big smiles to your faces too. The music they play for you, is so brilliant, that I know you will be going away on a high. For you to disprove me of this fact, is impossible, so see you Fridays, guys and dolls. Diane and Keith
GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS will be with us again here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB, this Friday, 23rd November 2018. You will be wanting to know who our trombonist ‘Kid’, GEORGE has with him.

The ‘GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS’ are back here tonight, 6th July 2018 at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) to give you all just what you want! Super Stars, Magical Music, Tuneful Tunes, Fabulous Fun, Exciting Evening-out and what’s more you may even win a prize in our Routine Raffle!
Who are these super stars? Well non-other than our ‘Kid’, GEORGE TIDIMAN, (trombone), DENNY ILETT (you’d be hard-put to find a better trumpeter) and how about clarinettist TIM HUSKISSON, such a talent, (I said last time, he plays piano with our Sunday quartet and I just love him). Then we come to the boiler-room boys, ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALLBUT on banjo (with his brilliant baritone voice), JOHN SIRETT on double bass and BILL FINCH on drums. Such stars, you just mustn’t miss them. What a coincidence tonight is – because last time they were here, I said how we were in for another bitterly cold spell with the ‘Beast from the East’ due to hits us the very next day. Then I said how the time before they were here, it had been boiling hot, with the temperature at 28o. Now what do we have – boiling hot temperatures of 30o. Oh well, perhaps not too much dancing aye. But we can still enjoy it – don’t worry boys in the band, I’ll bring the big fan and audience, I’ll have some hand-held ones too.

P.S. So sorry, seem to have lost the colouring – will come back at later date to rectify!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This FRIDAY, 16TH MARCH 2018, GEORGE ‘KID’ TIDIMAN’S ALL STARS will give you one a crackin’ evening here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent), because with our ‘Kid’ GEORGE, (trombone), will be non-other than DENNY ILETT (trumpet), what a player aye? Of course, I’m prejudiced about TIM HUSKISSON on clarinet, he plays piano with our Sunday quartet and I just love his talent. Then we have the great engine backing them, who will be ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALLBUT on banjo (with his rich baritone voice), JOHN SIRETT on double bass and BILL FINCH on drums. Such a delightful band, with plenty of atmosphere going on. I must mention, can you believe we were boiling hot last time they were here back in July, with the temperature at 28o. Now we are in for another bitterly cold spell, although not till after we slip our Friday in and the ‘Beast from the East’ hits us on Saturday or Sunday! So enjoy coming out to us, you may be stuck indoors again for a couple of days afterwards.
