Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's (Rosie Malone's, South Shields.)

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (everything), Derek Fleck (clt), Bill Brittain (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
Another stomper from Der Maine Street Storm-troopers who consolidated their hold on Ms Malone's popular watering hole.
Derek Fleck was depping on clarinet and he breezed through the numbers with ease. Likewise Bill Brittain - once custodian of the key(board)s at the Companions Club in down town Shields. Today he stood in for Malcolm Armstrong providing a touch of finesse to the rhythm section.
Sweet Georgia Brown was particularly outstanding among the instrumentals as indeed was Rockabye Your Baby.
Olive strutted her stuff good today singing, among others, Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams, Just Friends, Pennies From Heaven, I Double Dare You.
It's a great afternoon - good band, real ale, helpful bar staff and no shortage of characters in the audience.
Lance.
