March 2020 Gig – Reviews & Photos

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

Gill, Sandra & Brian:  “Most entertaining – don’t think there was a foot in the audience that wasn’t tapping – and community singing too!”
Richard & Gill Farrar and John Roman:  “Very Enjoyable Evening.  Lot of bater.  Great hearing Nat Gonella’s trumpet again since I heard him at (HMS) Collingwood in the 50s (Gill).”
Kate, Roger & Lesley:  “A very enjoyable evening.  Great musicianship, humour and a fitting celebration of Nat Gonella’s birthday.  Loved Graham’s playing – wonderful mellow tones on both trumpets – a real talent.”
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 adaptions.  Great musicians.”
Frankie Patterson:  “Virtuoso performances by soloists, great band, great 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 clarinettist and band Leader Pet Allen.  A super evening’s entertainment as befits a Nat Gonella’s birthday celebration.”
Malcolm, Maureen & Veronica: “On really good form.  Great entertainment.  Welcome to Jim Newton, first time at GJC and to Pete Allen, first time in 10 years.”
