These six young men (namely The Windy City Weatherbirds) must be reincarnated from the jazz magnificence of the West Coast sounds from Bobby Hackett, Jack Teagarden and Louis Armstrong’s talented days, and we are not exaggerating. But don’t let them know we said so, they will want more money and we would need you here for that, to tell them in person at our place.
Hey, it will only cost you £10 entrance and I’m sure you have at least three friends who you want to share this Sunday afternoon having a few pints with (cheap club prices) enjoying the fabulous talent with us. Please look at write-up last time (dated 21 August 2022) for photos. I write without looking back, then find I repeat myself, sorry, but it’s what I feel.
See you all this Sunday, 20th November 2022 (2-5pm). Where? Run by Farnborough Jazz in the Farnborough Social Club (Kent).

What a fantastic Sunday afternoon we had on 6th Nov 2022, everyone played their hearts out – a great pity if you missed it.
It’s nice how new people are beginning to feel at home here. Thank you all for being so understanding with my difficulty at being unable to speak quickly, plus your names will grow on us – we promise. Hey, we’d love to see a few more of our old friends saying ‘hi’ to us now and then.
Now here’s just a couple of numbers played, to whet your appetite for when we have them back again! There were several great solos, two to mention
‘Cute’ – (Brent Keafe gave a fantastic drum solo)
‘It Might As Well Have Been Spring’ – (Ruth Fahie sang)
Do keep an eye open next year for their return.

‘FORCE TEN BIG BAND’, yep, its ‘FORCE TEN BIG BAND’ back again, appearing here on Sunday afternoon, (2:00-5:00pm) 6th November 2022. This wonderfully popular band, consisting of seventeen musicians, PLUS Band leader, Lester (& Helen) have also promised us an extra treat of singer, Ruth Fahie. Let’s fill up the place, with a huge audience to make her first visit, a warm welcome. All that for only £10 Admission.
Last year, they performed at our second date here at our new venue. We knew we would love them as we had enjoyed them many times at The Warren. We knew most of them from over the years.
They are a jolly lot, playing such a wonderful mixture of jazz styles, (obviously) Big Bands stuff, from the likes of Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Stan Kenton, plus the songs by fantastic singers, such as the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra (my favourite male singer), Plus Tony Bennett and Dean Martin. Whatever your preference of Jazz, you can make a request and if they know it, I know (from The Warren) they will try to include it for you.
We are at Farnborough Jazz at Farnborough Village Social Club (Kent), turn into the slip road called Farrow Field, next to The Woodman Pub – you could have a Sunday roast lunch beforehand, but book prior, to save being disappointed – Sally & Peter Tel: 01689-852663
The Club has a large free car park, plus there is free parking within the Village too.
