Sole Bay Jazz Band UPDATE**********


As I was unable to go to jazz on Thursday night, because the nasty wind demolished my fence and brick pillars and placed them in neighbours garden, and had to spend all day trying to find people to come to my aid… so was worn out…

However I have heard not many people there, but it was a rather good evening so am pleased about that, also you dug nice and deep for the raffle so thank on behalf of the band.

Barry provided some vocals as well. Fudge has posted photos on her Sole Bay Jazz on Face Book.

Hope this Thursday the weather will behave and not cause more damage, so many folk had such terrible storm damage so think I was lucky, but lots to clear up now…

Sole Bay Jazz Band and friends…

A good crowd came along to support the Sole Bay Jazz Band last evening at Ditchingham.

Lord Arsenal managing them all, making sure everyone had a good play as he usually does…the back line must have been shattered as they play all the time, but they did so well, some great solos from Tim as well, and of course always good to have Bill playing his melodic trombone…
They all looked as though they were having fun which is always a good thing…and the crowd enjoyed Allan's singing! He brought some sheet music so a lot of different melodies…Hard job to get audience appreciation they were a bit shy!

We also had a tune on the harmonica from Geoff who popped in.

Thanks Clover and Chris for the raffle …the boys for the ticket folding…and you all for giving so well as all the regulars do.

Hope that all those who were still  unwell and not able to come along, please take care and get better soon.

Lovely to see Heidi  again …never saw anyone so pleased to see you Heidi as Jon was…he was good the week before felt for him so much!! your smiling face is always a tonic.

A couple of photos, our lovely band all wore dark except Craig so did not take too many but they played great!!!

Sole Bay Jazz Band 2018

I do not know where last year went, but here we are again… 2018 …Sole Bay Jazz Band starting the year off playing at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham.

A really good start with some great playing from these talented musicians, everyone giving their best and the sound (when slightly lowered thanks Tim) was great, some nice vocals from Barry to add to the mix.

Not much of a crowd but that was to be expected the weather was very off putting, and of course so many have not got over this lurgy which has caught all of us in some form, leaving a very fatigued lot of people, so I sincerely hope that you all will soon be back and joining in the lovely musical evenings we have come to enjoy. But still lots of our regulars coming along to cheer.

Thank you Clover for doing the raffle …the boys for folding the tickets, and all you who dig deep so that we can keep these fine musicians coming to play for us.

Thanks Jon you did well, did have a grin as could see how much you loved it!!! Heidi back next week? you hope.

Tim did take some of us to the funeral of our dear Brian on the 28th December, thanks to him we were able to say a fond farewell to one of our 'family' who loved his jazz… and we send our love to his family.

A few photos…my little camera does not like the lighting, but you can see the line up…

Christmas…

I have no idea where the year has gone, it has flown by I know that.

I wish all my lovely blogger friends (who even though they may not comment I know they are looking in) a Very Happy and Wonderful Christmas and  Healthy New Year…

My thoughts as I prepare a lovely Christmas meal for family to all those who are lonely, alone, sad or unhappy for many reasons …just to remember… Yesterday is gone (apart from all good memories) tomorrow is in the hands of God …so remember to just enjoy the day you are in and try to make it the best you can.

Thank you to all my lovely friends and family for always being there for me.

Have a lovely Christmas xx
