ASHINGTON JAZZ CLUB Final word on 2012.

Sadly the snow was snowing and the wind was blowing and we could not weather the storm and at the end of this year we were unable to go home with our music  to keep us warm.  It was so disappointing that our final meeting of the year had to be cancelled.
However, we cannot put this year to sleep without thanking all those exceptional musicians who  gave us a year to remember. To all those who were on stage in Ashington on behalf of the members I thank you all and send our Best Wishes for Christmas with the hope that the New Year will bring you the gigs, the applause  and credit you deserve.
Our Club will reopen in 2013 on Wednesday  6th. February at the Elephant with the first appearance
here of the Katherine Stone Quartet. We look forward to seeing you there to hear this singer.
Finally on behalf of our visitors, members and guests I thank John Taylor for all that he has done and
achieved throughout  the year to make this happen. We do not forget Bebop Spoken Here  who  provides welcome publicity. Thank you Lance and long may you continue to keep us informed.
Peter S.
