Mahogany Hall Stompers, Friday 12th July 2019

FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) welcomes back the MAHOGANY HALL STOMPERS tomorrow night, Friday 12th July 2019.  Band leader and cornet player, BRIAN GILES, will be joined by TIM HUSKISSON playing clarinet & alto sax, with COLIN GRAHAM playing trombone.  The engine boys will be ‘SOUTHEND BOB’ ALBUTT playing banjo & singing, JOHN SIRET playing double bass and BARRY CRICKMORE playing drums.  I can’t remember how many years we have had Brian with us (way before I had this website).  He is a lovely man and musicians love playing with him, so come along and join us and hear some happy jazz.  We are still enjoying this beautiful weather – can I suggest you come out and savour a lovely warm summer evening with us – perhaps buy yourself a shandy or something – yes, of course we still have our bar!  See you tomorrow night at 8.00pm (till 11.00pm).  Hosted by Diane and Keith PS I had to add this photo of Southend Bob – from 2010, he hasn’t changed much, has he! Actually none of them have from 2015 either.
