On The Road with Brian Bennett

Just to remind everyone that The Vieux Carre Jazzmen's Christmas Party at The Corner House goes ahead as planned tonight - special guest Neville Hartley, piano and trombone - everyone welcome. Seasons greetings to all our friends and supporters - have a very merry Christmas and 'All the Best' for 2011. Brian.
PS: (Picture) - Sunday 19 December, 2010. Brian Chester, trombone; Paul Susans, Sousaphone; Brian Bennett, banjo and Derek Fleck, clarinet, performing for South Tyneside Council to entertain the multitude of Christmas shoppers and children in South Shields. Ho, ho, ho! It's a great life if your fingers don't freeze.

On second thoughts, Lance, perhaps 'In the Gutter with Brian Bennett' would be a more appropriate heading.
However, it only goes to prove we'll play anywhere for money - won't we Don Fairley?

Looking at the photo there isn't anyone around. Must be the banjo.
