19th January – John Maddocks Jazzmen

Andrew & Tim: “Great numbers played exceptionally well.  This band just keeps improving.  Perhaps this is the cause of a good turnout.”
Paul, Anne & Carol (Anne & Carol’s first gig as new members): “Really enjoyed the performance.”
Nick & Heather Anderson and Carol Mort: “A top class band led by a famous musician playing to their usual high standard.  Included some lesser-known numbers.  Brilliant!”

Barbara Bell & Norman March: “Knee-jerking stuff.  Other bits too.  Great!”
Malcolm, Juliette & Tessa: “Really entertaining.  John Maddocks never fails to produce a great gig and provide superb musicians to listen to.  One of the very best evenings.”
