Mississippi Dreamboats @ Airport Church, Blakelaw, Newcastle. November 13th

Paul Bacon (drums), Liz Bacon (clarinet), Mac Smith (keyboards), Mac Rae (trumpet & vocals), Doris Fenn (banjo) & Ian Heslop (doulbe bass)
The Dreamboats' paddle steamer berthed upstream in the Newcastle suburb of Blakelaw to help raise funds for the Pakistan Relief Fund.
Airport Church (nowhere near Newcastle International Airport) was the venue and a good sized crowd turned out to support the cause and, of course, enjoy the sounds of New Orleans jazz.
The Bacons have been practitioners of the art for more years than they care to remember. So too the rest of the band, come to think of it! Mr.Bacon's playing in the New Orleans' style was exemplary, Mrs. Bacon's clarinet likewise. Old hands Smith, Rae, Fenn and Heslop contributed much to the ensemble sound and Mac Rae played good trumpet and sang well, particularly on Corrina,Corrina and a stompin' Sheik of Araby.
