Sole Bay Jazz night…

A lovely evening of Jazz …Blues and Fun at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham with The Sole Bay Jazz Band and friends… much more like the past times.

Tim playing saxophone/clarinet really good …Trummy with Trombone and Euphonium…Craig looking refreshed and playing some great drums…Alan busy on guitar/banjo and looking happy…Tony on that double bass sounding so good with Barry on piano and vocals very nice indeed.

Lots of music Barry was not used to as Tim picked some really different tunes however Trummy and Alan on hand to help also Tim being him managed to keep things light saying also a lot of keys that Barry wanted to play in they did not know! and it was a fun night everyone in the band seemed to gel so well, so a real pleasure.

I was a bit grumpy because some loud talking when the solos were being played, but always get reminded that it is a social night ha ha old school me!

Sadly a lot of our (old school) folk are off ill at the moment, so from all your Jazz Friends get better soon take care of yourselves and come back when you can.

A small crowd but those of you who were there dug deep for the raffle and as usual  Clover and Christine did a grand job of that.

Thanks Emily always a smile and a help.

Thanks band it was a really good night… think Tony will have some videos and Fudge has photos on FB mine did not come out well but will post one anyway.

Sorry no write up until this moment …had migraine a couple of days… 

A different evening some nice videos on Sole Bay on Face Book from Tony, Phil is always great on the guitar not sure it all blended with the band as much as usual …but nice to see Dave's smiling all the time… Barry sang some really good songs bringing a bit of happiness to the evening. Ray played some trumpet as well as piano (not at the same time) Tim played one of my favourites…Tony on string bass, Alan on guitar and banjo. They work hard just a little more fun please!!!

Not many folk there sadly but hope by next week a few more will come along and support the band.

Sole Bay Jazz Band Entertains

The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham, resounded with jazz last evening…with the Sole Bay Jazz and guests…

In March 2018 we had Pete Rudeforth coming along to play for us with Trummy and the Sole Bay regulars… in the audience that night Tony Parsons our departed friend said to me about this blog diary of mine I may not have all the correct english etc and lots of Capitals in the wrong place…apostrophes…ellipsis as well but I say it from the heart, so I was going to blast you all with a huge write up because last night everyone in the band played their hearts out  BUT last year I wrote…

"Entertaining…Wonderful…Terrific Talent…Fun and much more… one of the best nights…"

It was just that all over again…so thank you 'our band 'you were simply the best we have heard for a while so good to see you all enjoying it…

A little bit sad that although we had a good crowd, some of our regulars were missing so you missed a great night of music…so if you were ill get better soon.

So good to have trumpets again! so thank you Pete and Ray and of course earlier in the evening Ray was at his piano…Tim always plays well so nice to see him really enjoy himself as did Craig Tony and Alan, Trummy so many notes …(your mate who you came with certainly enjoyed the music… really with it)

Barry sang us some good songs as well and to forget a few words in that massive word song was not a fault it was great. Loved that you took over from Ray on the Piano when he played trumpet, how lucky are we to have such talent every week.

Thanks to Clover and Christine for the raffle and of course for those who dug deep because you know with money from the bar the raffle is what helps to keep this the band coming to play for us each week as we cannot charge an entrance fee. Thanks also to our 'Boys" who fold all the tickets. Also thanks Christine and Clover for sharing with Jan and me …nice change to sit at the middle table. 

Lovely Emily behind the bar giving us her smile and happiness as always cheering everyone one up.

I took a few photos some were not so good because our lovely band moved a lot!!!!
