Fancy Footwork at the Corner House

Barry Soulsby (clt/alt/vcl), Brian Sibbald (bs), Peter Wright (tpt), Lawrence McBriarty (tmb), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl), Brian Bennett (bjo/vcl).
A packed house saw the Vieux Carré Jazzmen turn in their usual spirited performance on some good old good ones such as "That's A Plenty", "Jazz Me Blues", "Royal Garden Blues", "Margie" and "If I Had You" with vocals by Fred and a rare rendition of a tune new to me, "You Broke Your Promise" this was sung by Brian Bennett who played the banjo at the same time defying all the laws of gravity.
Barry Soulsby was seen studying a copy of "The Carnival of Venice" indicating that the world premiere of this venerable opus may be drawing closer.
The band in full swing generate an infectious rhythm that tonight inspired some fancy stepping from a gentleman at the bar.
Lance.
