RIP Danny Veitch








Dave Kerr has sent me the sad news that his friend, saxophonist Danny Veitch, died on Monday in the RVI, Newcastle, where he had been an invalid for several years following a long stay in hospital and multiple heath issues.
Danny played alto saxophone and baritone with several local bands including The Savannah Syncopators*, Swing Bridge and the Safe Sextet.
The funeral is next Thursday 7th July 10-15am at Newcastle Crematorium and afterwards at the Cumberland Arms Byker.
Although he had not played for many years, I am sure he’ll be well remembered.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.

Sad news, he had a lot of bad luck health wise, fond memories of playing in safe sextet with him!
