With the much missed Tony Hobson in charge, the Eagle Jazz Band pleased audiences for many years. Since Matt took on the responsibility he has managed to maintain the same sense of fun and exuberance and it is still one of the most sought after bands on the circuit. We always look for a band that will keep the right spirit for our Christmas special along with a glass of wine and a mince pie and the Eagle really fits the bill. Pete Brown will lead on trumpet and no doubt duet on trombone with Terry Williams. Matt, of course, will play his usual variety of reed instruments. The ever present Brian Mellor on banjo and guitar will give us some vocals, the other Brian, Lawrence will be on bass and new boy Tim Jones will rattle the skins. There will be a brolly parade as well so come and enjoy a festive fun evening with a favourite band.
