We are going to have a lovely little evening here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) with the MAHOGANY HALL STOMPERS, being so used to playing for us. They are back this coming Friday 23rd June 2017.   Band leader BRIAN GILES (cornet) has booked JOHN ELLMER on ALL THE reeds, COLIN GRAHAM on trombone, plus ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT on banjo and vocals (Bob has such a rich baritone voice).  He also has CHRIS MARCHANT on drums and ROGER CURPHEY double bass.  All are welcome here.  We have a Shepherd Neame club bar, with club prices – come and try their new Spitfire lager.  There’s plenty of free parking, so no reason to stay at home.

Especially with Keith and moi (Diane) hosting your evening

Nothing like ‘live’ music.  

P.S.  By the way, don’t forget, we are back at Ye Olde Whyte Lyon, Locks Bottom, Kent, (next to Princess Royal  University Hospital) this coming Sunday afternoon (25th June 2017) 3:00 till 6:00pm Our band,‘4-in-a-bar+1’, plays smooth jazz, with our KEITH (GRANT) on drums, JOHN LEE on tenor sax, DAVE BARNES on piano, TIM PHAROAH on doublss and I (DIANE) sing a few songs.  I think my nerves are improving and I hope I am sounding better, so please come along and enjoy the ambience of this sixteenth century pub.  Why not book a Sunday lunch on 01689-852631 (their lovely new chef is great) – food is between 12.30pm-5:30pm.  The Sainsbury’s Superstore car park behind the pub is free on Sundays.
