Last Boxing Day’s Jazz n Blues session was the last ever one run by me. I’d been running the monthly sessions for 5 years. It was becoming very time consuming, I felt I’d done my bit and it was time to quit. Boxing day was the Grande Finale. I stood there and told the packed house that this was the last one. I even had special souvenir posters done.
Some other musicians decided to take it on, and after a shaky start the sessions continued. But then when it comes to Boxing Day this year, they can’t do it……and can I help out because they don’t want to let people down!!!
So I did it! Pulled it together in a short space of time. Invited some top musos. On the day the place was packed, standing room only. We had a great time. Never say never eh? 🙂
A couple of people over on FB asked me what kind of stuff we play. Here’s a copy of the set-list from the day. As you can see, it’s a real mix, and some of it not strictly Jazz or Blues. Well that’s OK because we are there to have fun. Jazz is a big umbrella! 🙂
If you’re in the area next Boxing Day, then……. 🙂
