Against all the odds we held this session and what a night it was too. It wasn’t until the morning of jazz night that we were confident that we could go ahead as the weather was certainly against us. However many helping hands cleared the car park and made sure it was safe plus then assisted the people into the venue.
We were surprised by how many loyal fans braved the bad weather conditions to come and listen to some of London’s finest musicians playing hot jazz from the 1920’s & 30’s. The band had everyone spellbound from the start with their quality performance and the audience showed their appreciation for the individual talent in this fabulous five piece ensemble. They certainly demonstrated why they are masters of Golden Age jazz and provided us with a fitting final session ending a great year’s jazz for 2017.
The fish & chip supper went down well and everyone went home happy.
