GREAT GIG today, Sunday 24th Sept, at the Royal George, Solva. Sunshine and jazz in the open air on the terrace! One of those balmy Autumn days which we’ve seen too few of this year. Thank you to Fraser and Steph for stepping up to the plate and forming the new Saints reed section. We hope to see you all on Friday 6th Oct at ‘The Royal Oak’, Fishguard Square, for our regular monthly lunchtime session – note new time of 12.30 – 14.30. 😀
After a hectic summer things are slowing down; it’s time for rehearsals, a new line up and some new tunes and songs.
We say thank you and farewell to Tony Harper, who has been a ‘rock’ of the front line since we formed SCJB nearly a year ago on Clarinet and Sax’s. We’re all sorry to see him go and we hope that he may pop in from time to time as a dep and wish him ‘good gigs’ with his other bands.
A warm welcome goes out to Steph Webb-Elder who has already stood in for Tony at two gigs and has now attended her first rehearsal! A seasoned clarinettist, Trad Jazz is a new genre for her, but she’ll soon get in the swing I’m sure when she realises that we don’t necessarily play what’s written on the score!
So, pace slowing down and changes, but we’ve got a gig on Sunday afternoon at the Royal George Solva, 2.30 start on 24th Sep and our regular First Friday Jazz lunchtime session at the Royal Oak Fishguard on 6th October. As we always say, be there, or………..be somewhere else!
