I just love it when TONY PITT’S ALL STARS come to play for us and they are here tonight, FRIDAY, 18th May 2018, at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent). TONY (banjoist) always brings nothing but the best with him. Judge for yourself, how’s this for a brilliant star-spangled bunch of musicians! ALAN GRESTY on trumpet &vocals, AL NICHOLLS on soprano &tenor sax, GRAHAM HUGHES on trombone &vocals (hope he brings his harmonica too), ANDY LAURENCE on double bass and CHRIS NICHOLS on drums. I think this is the first time for Chris, so come along with your huge Farnborough welcoming mat to make him feel at home and if you haven’t been to our jazz club before, then Chris will make you feel at home. I am late again with this newsletter, but must mention last night! We were invited to Jacquie and David’s new and highly successful ‘Foot Tappers Jazz Club’ at Seasons Restaurant, Knights Garden Centre, Chelsham, Surrey. They had JJ (Jonathan Vinten Trio) with Bobby Worth and Stevie Thompson, who were superb as expected. Their guest star was that magical singer, Sara Dowling. Oh what a knockout she is. I hate her …. Seriously, she is a delight. She is a lovely looking young lady with a mind-blowing jazz voice. Spit, spit, spit! Keep your eye out for her … she is going places. Well done Jacquie and David.
From Diane and Keith
P.S. Just a little brag for Tony, not that he needs it – but just to let you know that tomorrow, he is playing at Windsor!! He will be playing in the King Edward Centre with the Silk Street Trio. He hasn’t a clue how he is going to manage to get there. Obviously, they won’t be able to go by car with traffic. Anyway, we must let him leave promptly – no screaming for ‘more’! He will need to leave early tomorrow morning (and I dont mean from us!) – Keith said isn’t it nice to play for royalty two days running! Enjoy it Tony.
Farnborough Jazz Club wish to add to all the worldwide congratulations and huge wishes for a wonderful wedding day to THE happy couple, Meghan and Prince Harry. Don’t let anything mar your special day. It is plain for all to see you love each other. Such an exciting day to look forward to tomorrow.
Keith has Chelsea in the Cup Final too – hmmm.
