Maine Street Jazzmen at Seaton Sluice Social Club - March 26

Herbie Hudson (trombone/vocals); Jim McBriarty (clarinet/alto/vocals); Bob Wade (trumpet); Malcolm Armstrong (piano); Alan Rudd (bass); Ollie Rillands (drums); Olive Rudd (vocals).
Great session at Seaton Sluice Club last night. Two action-packed one-hour sets and a second appearance at this venue of South African trumpet ace Bob Wade
Looking forward to the Maine Street's gig at Ashington on April 5.Trying to get in touch with folks who first came to the club 35 years ago. It will be fantastic to see Malcolm Armstrong back on piano at the Elephant – he’s played there from the start.
On a less happy note, it seems that trombonist Don Fairley is in hospital undergoing tests following an ongoing heart problem. We all send him our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
