We won’t often get a group with a front line stronger in New Orleans influence than our next band who are making a welcome return to the club after only nine months. Mike Owen, trombone, spent many years in New Orleans playing with the best and was here recently with the Jazzaholics. Sarah Spencer, who spent many years in the States, plays the full range of reed instruments with plenty of power and is also a fine vocalist, especially with blues numbers. Regular visitor, with many different bands, Brian Mellor will be on banjo and guitar, Jim Swinnerton is scheduled for the bass role and Baby Jools will complete the five piece on drums. A treat in store to launch our 2018 programme.
