I was ‘Granted’ on 8th October 2017, then Keith and I enjoyed a couple of days honeymoon, returning on Friday, 13th October 2017 for Bob Dwyer’s Bix & Pieces.

This week was the very first time ever that I had missed writing a newsletter to tell you of the band and the musicians who would be playing for us, since advertising our weekly Friday night jazz club some 25/30 years ago.  Well I had very good reason for missing it, simply due to my being ‘GRANTED’.



So sorry, but let me tell you briefly, we had the return of BOB DWYER’S BIX & PIECES, to FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB on Friday, 13th October 2017.  Trombonist &vocalist BOB, never complained we hadn’t advertised them, because it was a good turnout anyway.  MALCOLME WALTON was on trumpet, with TIM HUSKISSON on clarinet & tenor sax, HUGH CROZIER on piano &vocals, JOHN BAYNE on double bass &bass sax, DAVE PRICE on banjo &guitar and GRAHAM CAULICOTTE on drums.  Also MARILYN PRICE sang a couple of songs.  What a great jazz voice she has too.  Lovely evening.

Keep Jazz Live’ with your hosts,

The Granties
