Newsletter Ė Summer/Autumn 2017


We start this newsletter announcing another long-time member, Greville Hodgson, has stepped down from the saxophone section after 45 years due to other commitments. We are pleased to name Graham Matthews as his replacement. Graham will be no stranger to followers of the band as he has had several stints on the baritone chair as well as depping many times.

The band had a fantastic trip to Holland to take part in the Meer Jazz Festival. We returned just in time to perform our first concert at our new regular venue, Lickey End Social Club. The weather was very hot so we didnít get the audience numbers we hoped, but we will be returning so please come along and support the band in this new venture. Just in case the weather decides to warm up againÖthe room is fully air conditioned!

We were also lucky with the weather for The Laurels Jazz & Beer Festival which resulted is another capacity crowd. Fingers crossed for next year!

Our next gig at Lickey End will feature our multi award winning drummer Tash Buxton-Lewis as the band include a tribute to the great Buddy Rich in what would have been his centenary year. Come along and see our amazing drummer and hear some great music at the same time. We will also be back at Lickey End in December for our annual Christmas extravaganza.

In November we are returning to the All Services Club in Moseley for another double header with the Mike Beaumont Jazz Orchestra which promises to be another great afternoon. Two big bands for the price of one, what more can you ask for?

Looking ahead to next year, we will be returning to St Maryís Church in Alverley for another 1940ís swing night so, if thatís your thing, please support this event.
