Just Another Manic Thursday - Rosie's

Ray Harley (tpt), Jim McBriarty (clt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
Another funfilled afternoon fuelled by Hobgoblin ale.
The audience were appreciative and the band was on song.
Ray was back, teeth intact, Struttin With Some Barbecue.
Olive came on, she was East of the Sun, and later Singing The Blues.
Herbie played harp, looked real sharp, South Rampart Street Parade.
Then there was the blues they call Pete Kelly's' a mournful serenade.
But when Herbie went into his dance
Charlie Cragg said, with an upraised glance,
This blues must be called Gene Kelly's!
A most enjoyable afternoon and not a tennis ball in sight!
Lance.
