THE PEDIGREE JAZZ BAND (SPONSORED BY MARSTON’S BREWERY) are on tour again to present ‘A Salute to Trad Jazz’. Their clarinettist and band leader, CHRIS WALKER arranges for the band to come on tour ‘down south’ every year and once again will appear here, FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB, tomorrow, (Friday), 16th November 2018. We are second on their schedule – they are at Hastings Jazz Club tonight (Thursday). Chris has booked to join him, TONY MANN on trombone, ANDY CHISLETT on trumpet, JOHN NODDINGS on banjo & guitar, KEN AMES on double bass and playing here on drums for the very first time will be SY GORELICK (pronounced G’Relic). (See C.V.’s in ‘Page’ above). We hope Sy enjoys the lovely acoustics that musicians say our Farnborough Jazz Club premises has. Plus, a word to our Farnborough audience, let’s give him a warm fun welcome please, thanks (‘cos I know you are going to come in your hoards!).
The idea behind these tours is to give a little bit of history behind ‘trad’ Jazz, bringing a plethora of different numbers from the 50’s and 60’s. Don’t forget, this band fare from Burton-on-Trent, East Staffordshire, about 180 miles (from ‘up North’). For anyone coming for the first time, we have a Shepherd Neame bar (with club prices) and we enjoy a dance or three or more. Also, we have plenty of free parking. So please come and support us and this lovely band, who will give you a wonderful evening’s entertainment.
Keep all jazz ‘Live’ with your support.
Your hosts, Diane and Keith
