Vieux Carré Jazzmen go AWOL!

There I was on King Street, camera at the ready, all keyed up to hear the VCJ adding to the Xmas festivities. Alas, I heard no banjo strumming and by rights I should have picked up on it 'round 'bout Tyne Dock. Disappointed(ish) I left King Street and drowned my sorrows in the Alum House.
Approaching the Metro an hour or so later I was informed that the VCJ had indeed been playing their unique brand of NOJ so how come I missed them? I don't know - perhaps they'd had a "coffee break".
Sorry guys - missing your King Street session is like waking up and finding Santa has gone to the wrong house!
Maybe next year.
