7th – Graham Collicott’s Hershey and the Hot Shots
Roger & Lesley: “A very entertaining evening of ‘real’ trad jazz. A great front line backed by superb bass & banjo with lots of interaction with the audience. A real treat.”
Nick & Heather A and Carole: “It’s good to see and hear a real trad band playing all the jazz greats. Brilliant.”
Barbara Bell & Norman March: “Super duper. Effortless entertainment. Real Hot shots. Many thanks.”
John Carter: “We have seen this band before in one of its various forms, but not with this excellent front line. Very entertaining playing a wide range of traditional classics and show tunes.”
Juliette, Tessa & Malcolm: “It was ’Proper jazz’ as our one-time Secretary used to say. Welcome to Bob Alcoe on trombone on his first visit to GJC. Great evening and particularly liked Burgundy Street Blues.”
