HOT LIPS OLD-TIME JAZZ’ are again on tour from Munich, Germany and they plan for FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB (Kent) to be the last show of the tour.  It will be their second visit to us next Friday, 7th April 2017 (from 8:00pm). The band’s line-up hasn’t changed in 27yrs, being led by MICHAEL “HOT LIPS” ETZEL(trumpet & vocals, BOB STRAUB (clarinet, alto &bass sax), HANNES EICKHORST(trombone), HEINI “THE TINY” BUCKENMAIER (drums), OTMAR “GEORGE” DICKER (d.bass) and WOLFGANG E. OTT (banjo).  What a fabulous evening we had with them, back in 2015.  I quoted in my newsletter about that evening, “Another great evening of jazz”.  Why not join us to enjoy that International flavour we proudly advertise at Farnborough and give ‘Hotlips’ another warm welcome.  £10 entrance and several hours of wonderful jazz will be your reward.  We have a friendly atmosphere, dancing, happy bar staff with club prices and free off-road parking.  Go on spoil yourself, give us a visit, you’ll love it.
