Bob Dwyer’s Bix & Pieces, Friday 28th February 2020

It’s BOB DWYER’S BIX & PIECES band back here at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) to entertain us tonight – Friday 28th February 2020. I’m so amazed how quickly another weekend is looming up on us. BOB was playing with Keith’s band last Friday, and I was telling you he would be back with his own band ‘next week’ and here we are already. Anyway, trombonist & singer BOB has booked MALCOLME WALTON to play trumpet, with PAULA JACKMAN on clarinet, plus HUGH CROZIER on piano & vocals, GRAHAM COLLICOTT on drums and MIKE BENNET on double bass. Lovely regular JOHN BAYNE unfortunately is unwell, so his Doctor has advised him to stop playing for a while.  Anyway, I think it might be the first time both Paula and Mike have played for us here at Farnborough, so please give them both our best Farnbronian welcome, won’t you. Come and join us for another wonderful evening’s entertainment Happy birthday to Christine and Ken – that’s presuming their families don’t pinch them from us …. Your hosts Diane & Keith

As I promised, I returned to sort some photos out, but found problems, such as my newsletter for Bob’s last gig in October 2019, seems to have disappeared.  I am soo tired having only had 3-4hours sleep last night, plus to sort something out for both Paula and Mike would take too long, so will just leave you with this one of  JOHN BAYNE and to wish him a quick recovery and send everyone’s love (I know Mike will not let you down on double bass).
