We have the MARDI GRAS JAZZBAND’ tonight, Friday, 29th September 2017So get down here and join us at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent).  What band of merry men do we have here for you?  Well, trombonist & band leader (& newly married) ROB PEARCE, has booked PETE RUTHFORTH (trumpet), JOHN ELLMER (a conglomeration of reeds), plus I think a warm Farnbronian welcome to newcomer  TOM BRIARS (sousaphone), JOHN STEWART (banjo/guitar), ANDY LAWRENCE (double bass) and PAUL BAKER on drums.  So expect to hear some fabulous jazz.  If you don’t, without a doubt, we’ll be saying to you next time we see you (as an old friend used to say), “Oh did you miss a gig”.  See you all for an 8:00pm start – yes?


Your hosts,

Diane and Keith
