Norfolk Dixieland Jazz Band…

A lovely way to spend a Sunday lunchtime…

The Norfolk Dixieland Jazz Band played in the courtyard at The Kings Arms Reepham…

I was lucky enough to be spoilt again… thanks Tim for taking me, and lunch.  lovely to meet up with Jean and Judy as always, thanks girls…

Joining the band today was our friend Chris Capocci as Bill was not able to play, so some singing as well as the trombone…

The Boys all looked good as usual in their Blue's… and played really well, so good to see such laughter and fun as well as great music and singing…

missed Vic on the drums in all these…


Tim
for Ruth!
Great music from everyone, some great play between Peter on Guitar and Tim on Clarinet…
John did his Old Rocking Chair!
Ruthie hope you approve!

The Courtyard was full of beautiful hanging baskets and the sun was shining…

Thanks one and all…

Typically after all the singers last week, we will hope to see Jenny/Simon or Roy…to add some vocals throughout the evening…

8pm-10.30pm

Another great night at Jazz on Thursday night, some good solos, Craig kept everyone on their toes with some of his great drumming, nice silver drums this week !  Mel gave us a couple of his gravelly voiced ditty's…

As above and more, as Simon  was there to sing for us and Roy, also our Jenny in good voice, so nice to see her getting her voice going again.

Another really good crowd as well, glad it is such a good venue.

It was a very hot evening, but with the doors open so the band and us listeners could wander in the break and get some lovely air…

Thanks again to the Band yet another different sound, we are so lucky to have such a range of musicians each week.

Thanks also to Heidi another good job of work.

Next week I believe we are being entertained by "Cool Blue"…

Video from Roy's jazz night…

video
A hand held little video, so a bit shaky, they were late starting however decided to put it all on as the music is great and Simon's voice smooth……I know you cannot get a  real good sound from my little camera but I do hope you enjoy …

Roy's night…

Roy's band (do not like to call it Romping Roy as he usually goes by),  were playing last night at the Sports Pavilion Ditchingham, and it turned out to be quite a night…

As well as those I put on the below post, we had Peter on guitar, so that was good, great guitarist…

Then a nice surprise  for the audience … Ron Hockett and his buddy Bill came along with their Clarinets, and joined in for several numbers, which was just wonderful, and how well Roy's band played with them,. a big pat on the back to one and all.

Barry and Peter gave us a song as well as Roy…Our Jennie  sang a little number, nice to have her singing again… we also had Simon Denny giving us some of his melodic melodies, very nice.

We  had two women singers names which elude me…who sang several vocals so it did turn into a night of rather a lot of songs,  for me anyhow.

However the music was really really great, and a huge crowd of people to support the band, some new faces as well as the regulars so hope they all enjoyed it. I would think as far as the musicians that played one of the best talented musical evenings that we have been to without having to pay an entrance fee…

I did a little video which is good of everyone, nice sound, but not sure if I will post it on here, I will see if I can remember how…if not you will have to come round here if you want to listen to it!!!!.

Heidi you did really well again coping with all the people.


Roy Ron Bill

Barry sorry I have got a hat on you!
