I really enjoy playing with my very special friend Jan Blake (and her band Body and Soul), they were the ones who drew me into jazz so many years ago. xxx
When Jan asked me to play with her – how could I refuse – She knows I love it. We had a fantastic gig at The Frankston Bowls Club. A very appreciative and well attended audience. And I was so thrilled to be invited to play.
On that same afternoon my friends Jazz Notes found themselves a clashing Gig (OOPS!) but lucky for me – my beautiful and talented daughter, Ashley stepped up and filled in for me, for what might have been, (or clearly wasn’t) my spot. They played at Farouk’s Olive in Thornbury to an audience?
We had been so happy to find a new venue in Brunswick and our meetup group had settled in nicely at Basco… but they had some issues with some maintenance and unfortunately from July we couldn’t regularly hold an event at Basco. We are hoping that 2017 will see us back in Brunswick with our full house band. Watch this space for news…
