Norfolk Dixie Land Jazz Band…

A lovely day in the sunshine (and wind… nearly blew the shelter down on the band)! at The Goat…Skeyton with the Norfolk Dixie Land Band…

Thanks Tim for taking me  and lunch! … Judy for the bottle water and Jean for the coffee…always spoilt up there… and for the great friends that I have made there, so nice to meet up with you all…

What a line up… a bit different as 2 on holiday, such talent, and an appreciative audience 

Vic Drums…John Cornet/vocals…Tim Sax/Clarinet…Bill Trombone……with guests

Tony Jullings String Bass…Phil Brook Guitar… great playing thanks to all…

Always nice to take photos as they look so smart in their Blue… the photo of our Prof is especially for his sister as he never looks up when I take a photo but he did on this one!

Sole Bay Jazz 30th July…

We all expected with that line up it would be a good night at the Sports Pavilion, with the Sole Bay Jazz Band, but could not believe when so many people turned up, and then the Band just gave us a terrific evening of great music, some really good arrangements,  super solo's and nice the band were  enjoying themselves as well as the audience, so Thank you Sole Bay Gentlemen, you certainly entertained.

As for the crowd do not think we have had so many people, a lot of new faces, as well as our regulars. I do hope that  it will not put people off with the lack of chairs, but some do bring their garden chairs, otherwise be prepared to stand!

Thank you for digging deep once again for the raffle, of course not only is there prizes, but it helps Alan get these great line ups to entertain us each week. as no entrance fee is charged, we all think ourselves very lucky to listen to live music for the sake of a few £'s.

Thanks Jan for taking us and with the boys  helping to fold the tickets…
Heidi grand job you did with all that crowd! Keith for sorting the raffle…in fact so great to have such a lovely friendly crowd of like minded people enjoying themselves.








Just a few photos of the Sole Bay Gentlemen looking serious on here!

Sole Bay Jazz Band with friends…

Every week it seems we have another great evening of live music at the Sports Pavilion. in Ditchingham.

A really good crowd attending even if many of the regulars are in holiday or unwell, amazing that so many people seem to come along to support live music. needing more chairs really, glad some bring garden ones! A few new faces appearing each week…

Different evening of music again with the line up, such talent, we had Roy give us some vocals as well as Simon was unwell.

Another evening rather warm in the Club, however lots of doors open, for the little breeze there was.

Thanks as always Heidi, sorry you have so much chat down that end, you worked hard and keeping the smile going. Fudge great mystery looks ha ha. wish could stop some people shouting when the solos are being played, we all chat during the evening …and I annoy a lot when collecting the raffle money from the late comers when the band is playing…pity though when single players are entertaining us all.But of course it is a social evening and lovely for friends to meet up each week.

Thanks for those who dig deep for the raffle as that helps to keep the band going, I know I say that a lot as well (as about the loud chat) however it is hard for Alan to find these talented musicians each week without your support, most places charge an entrance fee, we are so lucky that we get the band for a few £'s and the chance of winning that 1st prize!!!!So keep digging deep please… As always thanks Keith for organising, it is not easy I know with you and Sheila not in the best of health, but worth it to you I know to get there every week.

Must thank June also Les for helping with the folding of tickets, As our usual helpers were on holiday, we have had a lot of people suggest how to change the raffle, however I still think folk like to line up their tickets on the tables so we will stick to the system…

So thanks Sole Bay and guests another lovely evening…already looking forward to next week, will put the line up on when Alan sends it to me.

Sole Bay Jazz with Simon

video

Not sure that this shows how good everyone is …Simon with the Band…and I do apologise for the shaking of camera, but it was fun…pity I did not tell everyone that I was making a video! whoops…
Will try harder in future… but if anyone in the band objects to this let me know and I will delete it! if not enjoy.
