Me and Him
Arrived nicely in time for our check-in, quick drink, then to the chalet to unpack.
This year the Jazz Weekend was being held in the Princes Bar. Me and Him thought this a much nicer hall, cosy and with a very good party atmosphere. Happy Hour all day!!!
Bands playing during the weekend:
Following dinner, Bob Dwyer’s Bix and Pieces opened the weekend’s entertainment. And what a weekend of entertainment we were in for.
Bob Dwyer’s Bix and Pieces - (2 sets) - line-up: Bob Dwyer (tmb), Mike Cotton(cnt), Bernie Holden (clt/alto), Hugh Crozier (pno), David Price (bjo), John Bayne (bs), Graham Collicott (dms). Nice band, good line-up. Some very good solo work with a good together ensemble. They did the genre proud. Do love a piano in a band.
Enjoy this rendition of "Putting on the Ritz"
Yerba Buena Celebration Band - (3 sets) – line-up: George Tidiman (tmb), Mike Barry, Dave Rance (cnts), Goff Dubber (clt/alto), Hugh Crozier (pno), John Arthy (sousa), Pete Greg (bjo), Pete Lay (dms). Now this was a surprise for me. One of the musicians in this band played at Me’s 21st Birthday Party in 1965. Giving my age away now! The band were really good. Can’t wait to hear them play again. Just listen to this classic "Muskrat Ramble!
