The Gangs All Here - at Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/ten/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
At last, after a summer of substitutes, the Maine Street Jazzmen were finally up to full strength.
Herbie was on form blowing gutsy trombone, wailing on harmonica - and singing. This is the enigma. Olive spent a lot of time waiting in the wings when she could have been strutting her stuff. When she did get the mike - Am I Blue?, Someday Sweetheart, possibly a couple more - the music lovers shouted Bingo!
This is nothing against Herbie - a fine chanter in his own right - or indeed Jim who crooned a tasty If I Could Be With You but my feeling lies towards the why buy a dog and bark yourself syndrome?
Ray of course blew the roof off and Jim played a rather strange coloured tenor. Mike, Humble as ever, kept it moving and Alan ensured it didn't move beyond the confines of the bar.
Good Thursday Fare oh and Bass was only £2 a pint - straight, no chaser.
Lance. PS: I almost forgot to mention, I won a bottle of Rosé in the raffle so it was in fact straight with a chaser!
Eventually.
