‘BILL PHELAN’S MUSKRAT RAMBLERS’ are set to be with us on Friday, 25th May 2018. We at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB enjoy having a variety of bands to suit most of your tastes and know Bill’s guys will make a great atmosphere for you. I do hope to be ok for the whole evening myself this week, because these guys also know how to play great jazz and have fun at the same time! Band leader, BILL on trumpet & flugabone, will have joining him ALAN CRESSWELL on clarinet, JOHN FINCH on trombone, plus engine boys, ANDY LAWRENCE on double bass, JOHNNY McCALLUM on banjo & guitar (20yrs with Chris Barber) and PAUL NORMAN on drums). Plenty of dancing to be enjoyed and listeners will not be disappointed either, with hopefully Bill playing his flugabone and John (F) on trombone, to ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’, plus Alan featuring to ‘Petite Fleur’ – I shall request these numbers, that’s for sure (perhaps my ‘Ciribiribin’ too). Oh! I am a greedy what’s it!
Do join us – your jazz hosts
The Granties (Diane and Keith)
P.S. Can’t close without a P.S. nowadays – just a reminder though, ‘4-In-A-Bar+1’ are at Ye Olde Whyte Lyon, Locks Bottom this Sunday, 27th May 2018, from 3:00 till 6:00pm (see special ‘Page’ at top of our website about it). A lovely venue where lovely food can be had, plus enjoy our quartet playing lovely dinner jazz (with many old standards). This Sunday will have lots of romantic songs we will be playing for a lovely couple’s wedding at Leeds Castle next week – how about that – I’m petrified! Come and support us – with that many lovely’s I mentioned, it’s got to be lovely!!!!!!
