Grantie’s Dixie Six, Friday, 21st FEBRUARY 2020

I’m so excited because Keith has his own GRANTIE’S DIXIE SIX playing this Friday, 21st FEBRUARY 2020 at Kent’s FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB.  I’m sure he will be swinging this lovely Dixieland jazz band along like a good’ern. Why do I say that? Well, because he has just acquired a fabulous set of Zilgian cymbals that he just can’t wait to play. I know you will all love his great big grin too. Hey and what about the band! Well we have a fabulous body of musicians to entertain you. How about this – we have PETE RUDEFORTH on trumpet (also sings), plus tenor sax player JOHN LEE, trombonist BOB DWYER (another singer) and swinging away in the engine room will be TIM HUSKISSON on piano and ROGER CURPHEY on double bass, who, I’m sure, will be calming Keith down at the same time – hmmm).  I’m hoping to sing a song on the night. The music begins at 8:00pm and goes on until 11:00pm. Don’t forget, we have free off-road parking. Still only £10 entrance and you will have some first-class jazz. Your hosts, Keith and Diane.

P.S.  We (thats ‘4–In-A-Bar+1) will be playing this Sunday, 23rd February 2020 2.:30pm-5:30pm – at Ye Olde Whyte Lyon, next to Princess Royal Hospital in Locks Bottom, Orpington, Kent, Curser onto our page (top of the website) for further details.  We play relaxing ‘dinner music) and is very popular. (John Lee, Tim Huskisson, Roger Curphey, Keith Grant and myself – Diane Grant.
