Great FUNdraising for PAH
An amazing evening with Ken Bruce, Allan Rogers and a full house at the Hammond Theatre supporting the Princess Alice Hospice. Over £10,000 raised doing what we love, playing the music love. Thanks to Hampton School for hosting us.
Louise Marshall - master class act
An inspiring afternoon in the company of Louise Marshall working with the band and vocalists. A real treat with an impromptu performance by her for the friends and members at the Ember Sports & Social Club.
Fine Women & Song
What a privilege to play at the wonderful theatre at Notre Dame School, showcasing for the final time our tribute to the unsung and under-represented females in jazz and big band music. Great support from the staff and pupils at the school.
Back at St John's
James (below) treating us all to some wonderful soloing at St John's (great to be back), raising money for their ongoing building and community work.
Back at the Albion
Great to be back (Feb and April) at the Albion running through some of the new, old, borrowed and blue pieces we've been working. April saw all our vocalists in fine voice and a great crowd enjoying themselves. Hope to back in June.
That's Xmas done ... roll on 2023
Festive session seeing out 2022 ... a lot of fun with our friends and supporters, with one eye on the World Cup Quarter Final. Great local beer served as well. See you all in 2023, which is looking to be a busy year.
What an HONOUR
Absolutely thrilled to see our inspiration and much loved band leader on the 2022 Honours List, awarded a British Empire Medal for a lifetime service to music. What a legend !!! Thanks Bill for everything you've given the world of music.
