Last Friday we had the joy of playing to a capacity audience at the fabulous Steyning Jazz Club. We feel very honoured that despite hosting only twelve concerts a year, the club have put us on their agenda every year! It’s always an absolute pleasure to play for everyone there, we have only ever had warmth and appreciation from all the people who come to see us. Here’s a couple of pics of lovely Denis, club high overlord and big fan of our group.
Here he is warming up the audience with his wry wit and charm, putty in his hands.
The big drama of the day happened earlier when our bassist Dan’s hand swelled up and he was in hospital over night. We were helped out by our friend and another great player, George Berrils, who stepped in to save the day. Dan’s fine now though, phew!
With our good friend the legendary Mike Piggott on violin, adding to that authentic Hot Club De France sound, the whole evening went superbly well. As the notes of the last encore faded, we were happy that everyone went home with a smile on their faces.
Here’s the Quintet with violin playing the Cole Porter classic ‘Night and Day’.
