November 2022 – Reviews & Photos

9th – The Jake Leg Jug Band

Roger & Lesley: “So pleased they came back.  Another great evening.  Especially liked Richard’s trombone which gave a new dimension and the clarinet playing of Lana May in the blues.”
Julia Hubery & Mark Willis: “What a fantastic performance, individually & collectively.  Not enough superlatives for it – vocals, harmonica, guitar, clarinet, trombone and I have NEVER heard a St James Infirmary so incredibly, amazingly wonderful.”
John Carter: “A different band from our usual fare, playing a mix of traditional Folk, Country and Hill Billy music with a bit of Skiffle.  Lively foot-tapping entertainment.”
Malcolm & Tessa: “Very entertaining even with two different performers from last time (Lana – first time at the Club – & Richard).  Great fun.”

23rdGolden Eagle Jazz Band

John, Gill & Gwyn: “Very enjoyable band.  Happy-go-lucky musician who really enjoyed playing together.  Pity about the jokes!  Loved them really.”
Juliette, Yvonne and Tessa: “A great evening’s entertainment.  Even the jokes were good.”
Malcolm: “Great evening from same line-up as in March.  Very varied repertoire and tempi.  Four solo vocalists.  As good as it gets at GJC.  A sample joke from Kevin: ‘There aren’t many jokes about white sugar but brown ones demerara!’”
Nick & Heather and Carole: “One of the longest established trad bands and tonight NOT lacking in vitality, spirit humour and musical talent.  Brilliant!”
Lesley & Roger: “Some different tunes played by a talented crew.  Lots of personality and jokes?  Good New Orleans jazz – a very entertaining evening.”
Ron Norman: “Great evening’s entertainment – pity about the jokes!  One of my favourite drummers in this band.”
