Maine Street Jazzmen @ The Lambton Arms, Eighton Banks.

Olive Rudd (vcl), Iain McCaulley (tmb/vcl), Jimmy McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstromg (pno). Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Green(dms).
This was quite a landmark occasion for me. Lydia, a friend from New Jersey, was in town so naturally we arranged to meet up and where better place to meet up on a Wednesday lunchtime on the south side of the river than the Lambton Arms at Eighton Banks.
It is here that those monarchs of midday music the Maine Street Jazzmen purvey their wares.
Knowing Lydia's dewy-eyed sentiments re "My Very Good Friend The Milkman" I requested the band to play it which they duly did and the dew duly formed.
My guest and her friend Maureen enjoyed the afternoon which was helped along by Maureen winning a prize in the raffle. The splendid sandwiches were worth the wait and the band were on good form in front of an appreciative audience.
Apart from "Milkman", Olive also excelled on "Fine and Dandy" which was just fine and dandy.

Thanks for the photo of the maine street band, but a slight correction is needed please.
Ollie no longer plays for the band, and I took the drumstool in his place.
Sincerely, Mike.Green.

My apologies, Mike, I was distracted by my company although,I do remember thinking that that doesn't sound like Ollie on drums when you took a solo on the last number in the first set.
I will correct it.
