DAVE RANCE’S ROCKIN’ CHAIR BAND is our band booked for tonight at FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB That being Friday, 6th April 2018, from 8:00pm till 11:00pm.  Band leader, DAVE RANCE (trumpet & vocals) has booked JOHN AUST (clarinet), GORDON RUSHTON (trombonist), with COLIN FREE (double bass), DOUG PARRY (banjo & guitar) and HENRY HARRISON (drums).  They fare from Leighton Buzzard and have travelled here a few times over the years.  Their last time was in February 2017, so it would be nice of you all to give them a big welcome back.  We have a lovely atmosphere here, so anyone new will always feel at home.  Of course, we have plenty of parking space and a (club prices) Shepherd Neame bar to help.

So come and join your hosts

The Granties (Di & Keith)

P.S. You may remember last time they were with us, they had DEREK SCOFIELD.  He had a cataract operation a week, or so ago, so not here tonight,  We are wishing him well soon, but please, a warm welcome to JOHN AUST.  Colin played alto, tenor and bass saxes plus piccolo & vocals, and memorably, you may recall, did a little bit of tap dancing too – here is a photo of him.  I will eventually upload the rest in due course.  Also, you will notice GRAHAM WISEMAN was playing trombone with the band in 2016.  Graham played here often.  Remembering him tonight – although a warm welcome to GORDON RUSHTON too.
