Mardi Gras Jazzband, 24th May 2019

It’s MARDI GRAS time tonight, Friday 24th May 2019 at our FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent).    That is when the MARDI GRAS JAZZBAND do their stuff. These guys make regular visits to New Orleans and so they do really know their stuff, often wearing lovely happy blazers, complete with Mardi Gras beads. You will be sure to enjoy the true spirit of New Orleans tonight.  The musicians trombonist band leader, ROB PEARCE has booked, is LEIGH HENSON on trumpet & flugelhorn, plus of course JOHN ELLMER on his many reeds and PAUL BAKER on drums. Joining us for the first time is ROGER LEWIN on piano. So please let’s give him a great big warm Farnbronian welcome. Your  hosts, Diane and Keith
