Sole Bay Jazz night…

Another different evening of live music at the Sports Pavilion Ditchingham…

Such talent, and a good line up, nice crowd although not as many this week…

Simon gave us some great songs did not get a photo of him, but he has sent me some from his phone of the band which I will put on here with a few of mine. Light not good for my little camera…

Ron and Tim on the front line giving us some great duets on Clarinet, and Saxophone, they play so well together… backing them well our usual three …some great music from them…We also had a harmonica a nice piece of music thank you. Not always all jazz but nice to have a change…

Thanks to Heidi as always smiling…lovely to meet up with good friends, thanks Jan for driving us, and thanks to Keith for sorting the raffle, and for all you folk who give as much as you can each week so Alan get bring a different line up each week for us to enjoy…

Hope all who are not well get better soon… 







A nice different take from Simon, and one of Craig as well ha ha thirsty work this drumming…Thanks Simon very good.

Garden 2015

Well here we go again I do love my cottage garden, but a lot of work with a bad back! however…Think John would be pleased I have kept it going…




The reason I do try not to moan is… this is my neighbour who is 89 + and if she can do it so can I…Yes I did go and help her sweep up…

Jazz at the Sports Centre…

Every week I think the line ups that we have at the Sport Pavilion  Ditchingham on a Thursday night, cannot get much better, they always surprise me, and this week was no exception… thanks Alan you did another good job.

This week was different not only with the line up, but with a good menu of music and singing we have not heard for a while…Some great playing as always from our back line, and Ray, back even though not fit, but his playing on that piano was brilliant…

Guests Pete, Geoff, and Bill, played us up a storm great playing from all…

Simon came along and gave us some really great vocals… and Geoff did a song as well…
Some wonderful solo playing, maybe that was a really good thing as everyone had such a load of fun in the band, which in turn made us all feel good.





Nice to see Heidi back smiling her way through the night and coping well with another big crowd.

Sad that someone had one of those e cigarettes going again at the bar, which brings my allergy on, so a bit wheezy today, however, people say nothing is bad about them so suppose will either have to put up with asthma or not go to the jazz unless they are banned! Not sure of the law, but we have such a great crowd of people there every week, so must not let one spoil it…and it does not seem to bother anyone else…

Thanks to Keith who is not in good health but still  sorting the books and the raffle, and as always thanks to you all who dig deep each week to enable Alan to get such good line ups for our pleasure of listening to Live Jazz Music…
