Me and Him

The first Jazz Festival we visited was Sand Bay three years ago. The music we knew couldn’t fail to please, but what about the venue – a holiday camp? The only holiday camp that I’d visited was a couple of years previously, booked for a week and managed to escape after two days. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation was clean, but sparse, the food was adequate and we met some lovely people. Come the end of the three days we were hooked and so we booked for the following year.


Sand Bay January 2014 was very good. Three full days and nights of New Orleans Jazz, courtesy of Pete Lay. There was some great music and pretty good dancing as well. Me and Him have a bit of a jive, we’re not very good and can only manage the slower numbers, but like to get into the spirit of what is New Orleans Jazz.


As our grand idea was only born at the end of the Sand Bay Festival  we do not have any footage to share with you. From now on we will though.


Buy a Camcorder for Him, a Tablet for Me but, more importantly, book the venues. Which venues? What makes of hardware? With the help of the Jazz Guide and adverts for gigs and festivals we made our choice. With the help of Which? we chose and bought the necessary hardware.


We have had quite a few hiccups with the hardware. Me more than Him but we've cracked

it now. We had a trial run with the camcorder at George's Jazz Club, Witham.

(Royal British Legion Hall) first Tuesday of the month 12.30 -3.00pm, the George Tidiman All Stars.

The first time that we visited here I met someone who had played at my 21st Birthday Party, the last

time I saw them. What a small world and they also were going to Hemsby.


We were confident that we could manage and, hey, Hemsby awaited us.
