4 March – Roger Marks’ Cornish Armada – Nat Gonella commemoration gig


Gill, Sandra & Brian: “Most entertaining – don’t think there was a foot which wasn’t tapping in the audience – and community singing too!”
Kate, Roger & Leslie: “A very enjoyable evening.  Great musicianship, humour and fitting celebration of Nat Gonella’s birthday.  Loved Graham’s playing – wonderful mellow tones on both trumpets – a real talent.”
Richard & Gill Farrar and John Roman: “Very enjoyable evening.  Lot of banter.  Great hearing Nat Gonella’s trumpet again since I heard him at HMS Collingwood in the 50s – Gill.”
Julia Hubery, Mark Willis, Sue Hubery: “We’re all out of superlatives.  Just feel sorry for anyone who missed these amazing guys.”
Pauline & John Bush: “A wonderful evening of classical jazz with entertaining adaptations. Great musicians!”
Frankie Patterson: “Virtuoso performances by soloists, great band, super atmosphere.”
Maureen & John Carter: “Welcome to this very popular West Country band for Nat’s Anniversary concert.  With one or two personnel changes including top clarinetist and band leader Pete Allen.  A super evening’s entertainment as befits Nat Gonella’s birthday celebration.”
Malcolm Maureen & Veronica; “On really good form.  Excellent entertainment. Welcome to Jim Newton, first time at Gosport Jazz Club & to Pete Allen, first time in 10 years.”
