Sad News.

Some of you will remember Don & Ann Grant who were regulars at the Blaydon Jazz Club till two or three years ago when health problems prevented them coming. I've just received the news that Don passed away after having been seriously ill for a few months. Ann is not in the best of health herself. Roly.

We had the sad news last Tuesday that trumpet player/vocalist and bandleader John Hubbard of the Victoria Jazz Band had passed away, The Victoria Jazz Band was one of the first bands in the early 1970's to play one night a week at Neds, plus it was The Victoria Jazz Band with John Hubbard & Keith Vitty who give me my first gig in Hong Kong, so I will be playing for him at Grappa's this Wednesday, 7th, May at 8-00pm in a tribute to John Hubbard, with the VJB, & with other well known guest musicians from Hong Kong who played with John over the years. R.I.P. Colin.
