I am going to try harder with this new system of putting photos on here as I do not seem to have a space to write under each one forgive me it will be back to the drawing board...
The Footwarmers who I named a few posts down.. had an added bonus yesterday lunchtime at the Conservative Club as Ray Simmonds played Trumpet, as you will know a few playing here are with the Sole Bay Jazz band, and they mixed in well with the other Footwarmer players.
They gave us a really great jazz lunchtime, I must say it was a real treat and all the customers joined in the applause even those who just came for a quiet drink.
Chris hid behind the pillar but he not only played but sang as well.. good to see Barbara again on the banjo, Peter Elliot gave us a couple of numbers on the drums, whilst Dave had a break. then Roy Symonds popped in and so he was asked to sing, and hopefully he will do so again, as he went down very well.. Of course I must mention the great number of Tony on double bass and Dave on drums it was so wonderful ..well done you two.
It is really good that the Club encourages Jazz wish the Sole Bay could play more often there, although I must say that Mikes Footwarmers always give a great jazz session. Hope they enjoyed the addition of some of the Sole Bay folk.
Thank you all the band as I said you were great....and friends for the company you know who you are, and the dog well he is not with the band , he is Peter's (who will not mind me saying is blind), and as some of the customers had food, he was looking longingly at that and so could not resist taking his photo, what a wonderful thing the dogs are who help our blind people, he was so good.
I do hope that we can get a few more members to join the Club, as like all businesses if we do not use it we will lose it, It is a beautiful building with so many facilities a snooker room, function rooms, and a great bowling green..so please pop along anytime and ring the bell and I am sure you will be made welcome, have a coffee, we have some really good directors now who take part in a lot of the running of the club, so do come and support it.
Then of course you can listen to some great music as well as the other items that are on the agenda.
