Mike Barry’s Uptown Gang, Friday 28th April 2019

It’s MIKE BARRY’S UPTOWN GANG on Friday, 28th April 2019, here at our FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent),  Trumpeter MIKE will be joined by TONY TEAL on reeds, ‘WHISPERING’ MIKE HOLT on trombone & vocals, JOHN STEWART on banjo & guitar, KEITH DONALD on double bass and BRIAN STAPLEY on drums.   I must mention I actually cut-n-pasted most of the following info about a year ago’s weather, I was apologising then to you all we had cancelling the previous week, having only had to do so twice in about 37years (and always due to extreme bad weather – regarding being snowed out of the club!).  I also said it was quite weird that we had the hottest (probably the longest) summer ever recorded too!  Now here we are a whole year later and to mention how we have had severe weather in this Feb, nearly needing to cancel again due to snow.  Now in recent weeks (and still only in April) isn’t it great we’re enjoying extremely beautiful and hot weather.  Anyway, here comes Mike and the boys – ready to give us a ding-dong again.  I just love this lot’s smiling faces – as well as their choice of tunes.   My apologies, but due to some personal time consuming events – so sorry but photos will have to wait a little longer please, but one day! Your hosts, Diane and Keith
