A couple of things to look forward to at Blaydon.

Well, last night may have been a low point at Blaydon - the cancellation of Roy Williams with the Blaydon Jazz Quartet and the always popular Christmas Party was a bummer which ever way you look at it. However, the future holds at least two good gigs out in Sticksville (my little joke) to look forward to even if we have to wait till March by which time the weather will, we hope, have improved.
March 3 sees the return of that θαυμάσιος tenor player VASILIS XENOPOULOS. Vasi is in the region for a few days so expect to see him elsewhere but he will be at Blaydon first so that if you dig him (and who doesn't?) you can also catch him at other venues.
March 10 - no one man could follow Vasi so Roly, sensibly, booked 16 men and a girl! - The CUSTOMS HOUSE BIG BAND with RUTH LAMBERT.
Make a note in your diaries.

I was a bit surprised to see you using Greek fonts on the Blaydon Jazz Club preview, did you know that his name translates roughly as King Strangebird.
I wish you Euqumo Xristougenna kai Kalos Xronov sthn Tzaz.

Thank you for that Grecian Greeting Milov - it reminds me of the time a guy was talking to me in the pub about the Greek economy and it's effect on the Greek workforce.
I was bored to tears so, in an attempt to inject some levity into the conversation, I said, "all those Bouzouki players out of work eh?"
"Oh yes", he replied, "Sport will be effected."

Thanks for the mention Lance.
I'm not sure about your description of the Customs House Big Band plus Ruth Lambert as "16 men and A girl" is entirely accurate!

Whoops! I must get my eyes tested!Apologies to Jill, yourself and the other lasses who pop in and out of the baritone and second tenor chair.
