Maine Street Jazzmen - Band of the Year.


The Maine Street Jazzmen played their first gig at Rochdale last summer, and were so well received the band were voted "Band of the Year"  for 2012 by the club committee and members.
( The club book a variety of travelling and local bands throughout the year for their regular Sunday Night jazz club).
They were supposed to play the club again back in January, when they would have been presented with the trophy, however the gig had to be cancelled due to heavy snow.
(The next date for the band at the club is not until the summer! )
However, a small contingent from Rochdale Jazz Club are travelling over from Rochdale on Tuesday (March 19), to attend the band's regular Tuesday evening gig at the Jesmond British Legion, where they will present their Band Of The Year trophy.
Unfortunately, neither Russell or myself will be able to attend and it would be appreciated if someone could do a report and perhaps send a few pics. They are a fine band with, in Olive, a fine singer - any volunteers?
