It’s MIKE BARRY’S UPTOWN GANG who will be entertaining you at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) tomorrow night, Friday, 14th FEBRUARY 2020 – ST. VALENTINE’S NIGHT.
MIKE BARRY plays trumpet and in his happy band he will have TIM HUSKISSON on reeds, ‘WHISPERING’ MIKE HOLT on trombone (who also sings), JOHN STUART on banjo & guitar, ROGER CURPHY on double bass and PAUL NORMAN on drums. Last time Mike had his Uptown Band, we were apologising for cancelling the week prior and the fact that we have only had to do so twice in 30years (always due to extreme bad weather) and that was two years ago. Since then, we have cancelled both Januarys and sod’s law, we have had the warmest Januarys – NO SNOW!!!! Anyway, ‘live’ jazz is what we offer, so just in case of snow in February March and April, come and join us for some fun – we do enjoy ourselves.
Neil Osborne has generously given a sponsorship to the Farnborough Jazz Club, so our very special thanks Neil, for your warm-heartedness.
Your hosts, Diane and Keith
