Granties Dixie Six, 8th February 2018

GRANTIES DIXIE SIX will be making their debut entrance tonight 8th February 2019 here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent).  Hey last week was horrendous, weather-wise, but a brilliant evening as Rob made it a real party night.  This week, it’s Keith’s own band, with PETE RUDEFORTH on trumpet, JOHN LEE on reeds, BOB DWYER on trombone & vocals. Plus TIM HUSKISSON on piano, ROGER CURPHEY on double bass and KEITH GRANT on drums.  A great line-up aye!  If I can muster some courage, I might even sing a song or two.  Now if you haven’t been before, now’s the time to come.  Start the year of with some brilliant jazz.  The entertainment value is surely worth a visit.  We love to dance here – we certainly love fun.  The bar is a Shepherd Neame (club prices) one and we have plenty of free carparking space.  All this for just a £10 entrance. Come on, what are you waiting for.  See you tonight (from 8:00pm till 11:00pm).

Your hosts, Diane and Keith
