Remember When

This month's edition of 'Remember When' features an interview with former George Evans' singer Ivy Barnes on her days at Newcastle's Oxford Galleries. It features photos of the Evans Orchestra including a reunion one that has Zoe's dad Mike Gilby in the trumpet section. A good 50psworth.
Photo below (not from magazine) supplied by Hilary Gilby shows Mike with Zoe, Scott and 'Figaro' Gilby.

I can remember when Mike Gilby regularly played with the River City Jazzmen when they were resident at Ashington Jazz Club. (May be 20+ years ago?)

Mike was by far the one in the band that I most enjoyed listening to as he had a more modern style. I remember the night he said he was packing it all in and I think it was then that Ray Harley got the job.
