Partying @ The Piper. Maureen Hall & Rendezvous Jazz

Maureen Hall (vcl), Barry Soulsby (clt/vcl), Iain McCaulay (tmb/tpt/vcl), Mac Smith (pno), John Robinson (bs), George Davidson (dms/vcl) + Liz Bacon (clt), Doris Fenn (bjo), Ian Wynn (pno).
This was a special gig to celebrate ten years of Rendezvous Jazz at the Piper Pub in Cullercoats and the standing room only crowd gave Maureen and the gang the support they deserve.
The lady was, as always, in good voice on numbers such as "Deed I Do", "Am I Blue" and a host of other gems. In fact it was quite a ladies night. Not only did they outnumber the men in the audience but, as well as Maureen, sitting in were Doris Fenn on banjo and Liz Bacon playing some nice clarinet.
Drummer George Davidson sang "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans", Iain sang "See See Rider" and, as he did last night, also played trumpet.
In the second set, Ian Wynn, sitting in for Mac Smith, played some fingerbusting stuff on piano whilst John Robinson was solid on bass.
My only gripe is that the food ran out!
Lance.

Hi Lance

Just look at all that food. To think I missed it!...and the jazz!

I was there and I missed it! I thought I'd wait until the ravenous horde subsided by which time all that was left was 2 sausage rolls, a ham sandwich and a pickled onion.
