Me and Him
We arrived at Gunton Hall in good time and anticipating mixed weather. We were not disappointed! We soon made our way to the Bar where we met up with friends and a much needed drink.
The bands playing this weekend are New Orleans Jazz Bandits, Gambit Jazzmen, Kid Tidiman's All Stars, New Orleans Heat, Baby Jools and the Jazzaholics., Savannah Jazz Band, and Adrian Cox and his Hot Quintet.
The weekend started with New Orleans Jazz Bandits - Line up: Richard Church (tpt), Dave Vickers (tmb),Ron Rumbold (clt/sax), Dave Fawcett (bjo), Peter Brooks (bass). Malc Murphy (dms/ldr).
During their three sessions we were treated to a wonderful selection of music. The front line supported by the excellent rhythm section. All very much appreciated by the audience.
Here they play "Fidgety Feet"
Gambit Jazzmen - Line-up: Pete Brown (tpt/vcls), John Maddocks (reeds/vcls), Barry Weston (tmb), Roger Link (bass), Andy Maynard (bjo/gtr), Pete Lay (ldr/dms/vcls). This is a popular band who go down very well with dancers and listeners alike.
The band played a wide selection of tunes from which we have chosen "Flatfoot"
Following the expected downpour on Friday, on the Saturday, the Brolly Parade, with the “Gunton Growlers”, took place in unexpectedly warm sunshine. Following the Parade were at least
20 colourful brollies on show. A great start to a Saturday session full of jazz.
