Fun-packed Afternoon with Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's.

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/sop), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl). This was a fun-packed afternoon helped along by two couples from Plymouth en-route to Amsterdam - Amsterdam you have been warned! Sue, seen here dancing with Charlie Cragg, was the life and soul of this party along with Peter, Andrew and Tracey who were hell-bent on having a great weekend before they even reached the ferry! Nice to have met you all and come back soon. On stage, Olive impressed with Hard Hearted Hannah, I Double Dare You, All of Me and others whilst Herbie really hit the spot with his harmonica playing (and of course his tromboning and singing). Ray and Jim had their moments too! Jim blew a few on Soprano and Ray's playing was a testimony to the skills of his dentist! The engine room throbbed like no other trad engine room around. Stand out numbers were Lazy River, Dixieland One-Step, Someday You'll Want Me To Want You and their glorious rendition of South Rampart Street Parade. The pub was crowded - Good-time jazz at its best. I think I spotted Lulu - she had two beers and then burst into tears... Photos from Maine Street. Lance.

was she with Rose with the turned up nose?

Lance said...

Don't know - most of the clientele have turned up noses. If not when they arrive certainly when they leave!
(I joke it's a very respectable pub I saw a man who danced with his wife!)

Liz said...

so it's in Chicago then! and here was I always believing it was in Shields!!

Lance said...

As a matter of fact, the Chicago White Sox play baseball at Cominsky Park which is in - wait for it - Shields Street and further along the street the name changes to become South Shields Street!
