Hopefully this will play on here had to go around a different route than usual but here goes…

A fun time with Dixie Mix Audience participation…

DIXIE MIX…

A great night of live music from Dixie Mix at the Pavilion Southwold…A summer show as well as the winter one how great. Lovely views and a beautiful sunny summers night with the doors open to the air  how lovely!

What energy and fun these lads have …all ages and always smiling and making the audience enjoy every minute of their playing and singing, wonderful talent and a good crowd as always at the Pavilion, well done Keith for again providing us with a lovely evening out, always pleasant staff and good food …great bar… lovely to meet up with friends as well.

Thanks Jan for taking us all nice to get lost on the way home again ha ha…


Some of the photos are not great because I was not close enough some times for my little camera but glad managed to creep to the front and get a photo of them all in the end.

I did a couple of bits of videos hopefully to show Pete's relation as she could not come with us, so if any good may even pop on here.

But thanks to one and all… no wonder you have so many people want to hear you play, talented and great fun … roll on the next one.

Roys band at the Pavilion…

Last evening at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham, Roy and his band of merry men played for us while the Sole Bay had  a break…

Well done to you all, so sorry not many people came along to support the band, however those who did I hope enjoyed something different.

Thank you everyone who did come to the live music and  dug deep for the raffle, also those who helped me by bringing some gifts much appreciated. Of course thanks to my raffle folders as always. and for our ladies who get the room set up. Heidi smiling as always, after her day of being a Mum with children that changed schools, it is hard when they grow so fast isn't it Heidi.

 We had some different music last night, a mixture of jazz blues etc…and a lot of singers! Lovely to see Jenny being brave and stepping up, and apart from the band who nearly all sang, a young lady called Hannah came along and sang as well.  I did not feel there was so much fun and Romping Roy between the band as there usually is but it was hot …but still some great playing, so well done to all.

A few photos, and Barry let me have your e mail so I can send the photos, still not as good as the one I took before! but the hat is different!!!! Also Fudge took a good photo will pop it on if she sends it to me.

Next week we should have The Sole Bay Jazz Band back so please come along and support the live music, as you know if you don't you will lose it.

Jazz Friends…

I just want to put a little tribute on here… to say how wonderful the world of jazz is!

Our dear friend Peter Parr sadly departed this earth and Tuesday afternoon his family and some  jazz friends went to say farewell to him.

Some of the Sole Bay gentlemen played him into the crematorium with "When the Saints go marching in" Just hope he was looking down and enjoying it as he had loved his jazz for over 40 years.

A different type of funeral more a thanksgiving for Peters life. Some nice words spoken so we all remembered Peter with a smile because he had a great life.  with two songs from his favourite singer Lesley as well.

Thanks to one and all …the family and friends… the wake with the Sole Bay playing some wonderful music also  thanks to the family who provided some refreshments for us, on such a boiling hot day…Also for  those photographs that were shown around we all had some great memories…

Thank you Roy for taking us so we did not get lost! 

Happy days Peter you will be sadly missed by us all…And of course so will the blue tit… unless you took it with you as it no longer taps on the window? those who knew Peter will know what I am talking about…

Tony,Tim,Alan,Ray,Bill…

Sole Bay Jazz Band…

Last night the 14th July at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham, yet another night of live music was enjoyed by a good crowd to support the band.

A different evening with a drummer we have had before who did  great job standing in for our Craig, thank you all for giving us some great music, even though some of the members were under the weather very  good for them to come along and play for us, nothing like Live music.

I was sorry that some fans seem to  have decided to miss out because they were asked to talk more quietly several weeks ago, but it is a jazz night, and most of us although we like to chat, do not so  for long at a time,  you have been missing some great jazz! But we had a great crowd in the Club as Tim called it last night lovely to see a few new people as always.

It was also very nice to see our Denny family there again, it would have been Keith's birthday and although they have been through such a lot recently they always come up trumps and put a brave face on their problems, so great to see you all. Love giving Sheila a hug , and she got a nice lot last evening…sorry still some bad things to get over but come again soon we love you all. Well done Simon to not let the stroke stop you, hopefully although the journey may be longer than you would like  you have great support from Kim you will be back singing for us again in the future and we hold you to that!

One of our lovely members had some sad news, sorry to hear that you cannot fight that damn cancer anymore Don but what a journey you have made such a brave and lovely man, I do hope the time you have left ( hope it will not be too painful ) you will be able to still come along and enjoy the music while you can, a real trouper I have no idea how you managed 12 years of this hell, but thank you for talking about it, giving others hope.

Thanks as always to my raffle ticket folders what would I do without you…Thanks to all those lovely people who bring prizes along to help, and of course for digging deep. We did do well this week thanks to one and all, looked like a shop with all the prizes, and nice that they seem to be won around the room. Heidi as always looking after us all, and of course our local ladies moving furniture around and keeping us smiling, so good to have friends that gather together to hear live music.

It was a bright night for photos look at that colour! Thanks guys well done.

Next week we have the pleasure of Roy and his Band, while the Sole Bay have other commitments …details later…
