Granties Dixie Six, Friday 5th July 2019

Don’t miss the great jazz of GRANTIES DIXIE SIX in our own FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent).  We are here tonight, Friday 5th JULY 2019.  Get a load of some brilliant swinging Dixieland jazz – enough to get your heart beating, feet tapping and plenty of hands clapping too (or I’ll eat my hats).  Let me tell you who Keith has playing with him this week.  We have MALCOLM WALTON playing effortlessly beautiful trumpet and by the way, Malcolm also has a super jazz voice. Also playing is our fabulous tenor sax player, JOHN LEE.  Then there is terrific trombonist, BOB DWYER (of ‘Bob Dwyer’s Bix & Pieces fame).  You all know Bob has a deliciously romantic jazz voice too.  TIM HUSKISSON is playing superb piano (needing no introduction AT ALL, I love him – well not in the same way that I love Keith ha ha).  Plus, the great swinging bass player, ROGER CURPHEY.  Sorry, I might sing a song, or two and of course, my/your KEITH GRANT will be swinging away in the background on drums too (maybe this time, you will witness him catch that stick (he has managed to on occasions, I promise you).  So, don’t be late (8:00pm start), see you later – your hosts, Diane and Keith.  P.S. I’m sorry I didn’t get time to do a newsletter for GOLDEN EAGLE JAZZ BAND last week – I’ll do one over this weekend to say who played for you.  I hear you supported them well (as you always do) thanks… Diane xx
