Mardi Gras Jassband, 7th December 2018

THE MARDI GRAS JAZZBAND played for us here at our Farnborough Jazz Club (Kent) on Friday, 7th December 2018.  Sorry that I was unable to put a newsletter onboard – I will reveal why at a later date.  Trombone player and band leader ROB PEARCE brought his lovely band, playing in such form.  They are such a happy band (giving that super Mardi Gras feeling (complete with beads everywhere, plus presents for the raffle from New Orleans).  It was his usual band members, LEIGH HENSON on trumpet, JOHN ELLMER on his many reeds, JOHN STEWART on banjo & guitar, STEVE SMITH on bass and PAUL BAKER on drums.  Mike Witt took many photos, which I will upload here soon – I promise
