Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl); Colin Haikney (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dm.) Olive Rudd (vcl).
Colin Haikney on keys this week. Colin can unsmile the late Marshall Walker with his inscrutable facade but playing-wise he does the biz with some dynamic solos. In particular, his romp on Avalon was worthy of all the reputed hidden wealth in that legendary isle although Herbie's hotcha harmonica solo could perhaps claim a percentage of the loot - not to mention Jim's vocal and his liquorice input into the mix. A couple of kids - maybe 2 or 3 year old - stole the show with their dancing next to the bandstand!
Olive peaked on Sentimental Journey and Oxford Gold had the edge on Cherrypicker in the Ale Tasting Contest.
I was judge, jury and sole contestant in this latter event...
Lance.
