It’s our Christmas party-time already, here at the FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB this Friday 23rd December 2016. The PHOENIX DIXIELAND JAZZ BAND will be supplying the music for us. Those super guys in the band will be PAUL HIGGS on trumpet, CHARLES SHERWOOD on clarinet and BILL TODD on trombone &vocals, plus ALAN CLARKE on drums. Then there’s DAVE BARNES on piano & vocals, with ROGER CURPHEY on double bass, plus JOHN STEWART on banjo& guitar. Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to be a member. Just bring a great big smile with you and a feeling of good cheer to join in the fun. We will be having a fancy dress evening with no particular theme (although optional of course), a brolly parade and lots of raffle prizes too. The entrance fee is £15. You can bring your own food – and candelabras if you wish. Come and join us to some wonderful ‘live’ music.
It will be our last jazz evening of the year, not returning until my birthday celebration on 13th January 2017. So Keith and I want to thank all the bands who have supported our jazz club over the years. Also, our lovely bar staff AND to audiences who maintain the lovely atmosphere we have. Here’s wishing you all A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
With much love from your host and hostess
Keith and Diane
