Sole Bay Jazz…

A good night at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham with a smaller version of The Sole Bay Jazz Band…But some great jazz…

Nice to see a good crowd to support the musicians.

Thanks Clover and Chris for a good raffle again also for the 'boys' folding the tickets. Heidi and Cloe behind the bar.

Good company as always…Missing a few of the regulars, and as always sending good wishes to those who are too ill to come along, get better soon.

A few photos for those who still look in on here…




A little heads up of Tony!

Walk in the October sunshine…

Jan and I decided to drop all the housework… washing and cooking this morning and off we went to Pakefield Cliffs, A beautiful sunny if very windy morning would not have thought it October!

Walked down to the South pier at a good speed chatting to folk on the way, lots of people about and dogs…

Came back a lot slower as the wind was…well very windy…we did stop off at the Thatched Cottage for a coffee and a naughty sausage roll which we shared!!!! then onwards at a much slower pace…

A few photos, and sorry Jan but think that one of you in front of the huts posing could not be deleted until it found its way on here, you look great…

Thank you had a great time, now to catch up with all the stuff I left behind when we decided to just go!!!

May have to have a bit of a doze later ha ha!

Sole Bay Jazz Band with guests…

Thursday the 12th October at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham wow what a night.

Thanks to one and all we had a very different talented fun evening, such a great trad jazz night  so many old tunes had not heard for a while and non stop as well.

Led by Geoff … Pete …Bill and Ray on the front line and our intrepid back line of Craig …Alan and Tony… what a nice lot of solo's as well soooo good.

A good crowd even if quite a few empty chairs but those who were there really heard some great music.  Nice to see a few of the regulars who have not been for a while, and some new faces as well.

Thanks Clover for the raffle and the 'boys' for folding the tickets, well done Alan as MC.

Heidi as always that smile even with the remnants of that cold… sexy voice though!

I am sending good wishes to all those regulars who are not well at the moment we miss you. Get well soon…

And as an add …the person in the red van who tailgated me through the little back road in Ditchingham, it is a 30 mile an hour zone which I was doing …and you nearly had me off the road, I hope you get some driving lessons!before doing someone some harm…

A few photos…






one of Tony head up!

Dixie Mix

Dixie Mix video Stranger on the Shore…Fingers crossed!

video
Have just played it through and although I was a bit shaky hope you can hear the sentiments that come through from Pete's playing backed by John Kevin and Tony.

Dixie Mix…

Wow what a great night of music …out 3rd night in a row!

Janet drove  Neville (Pete's Bro) Yvonne and me to see Dixie Mix at Wangford Community Centre… I must say before I tell how really great the night was, the Community Centre and all those who look after it do a really good job and the facility is absolutely such a good venue so thank you to all who manage that and well done for raising all that money for the Church roof.

Now …
those lads who are Dixie Mix always make such an entertaining night, but think they really went over the top last night, considering Simon and some of the others were not feeling good they certainly did not show it.

I am so pleased that we managed to sit nice and close so that Neville and Yvonne could see Pete playing, so they had a good night, as did we. Yvonne wanted to hear Pete play Stranger on the Shore so I did manage to video that will try and put it on here at a later date…

Thank you boys a really great night …a few photos …Hope you can enjoy them …the lights kept changing colour so nice and varied…
