Big Muddy @ the Prohibition Bar - August 4

John Haylock (baritone); Gordon Brown (alto, clarinet, vocals); Nigel Robson (trombone); Lionel Hehir (guitar); Stu Halliday (drums); Dave Weisser (cornet, vocals); Jude Murphy (bass guitar, vocals).
(Review by John T.)
Why have I not heard this band before? I’ve been following Dave Weisser’s Take it to the Bridge for many years and did not know he worked with other outfits! 
Big Muddy are well rehearsed and have a balanced line-up. Above all else, they really do SWING – not just good readers!! The well thought out programme at the Prohibition had a range of styles and influences:-
Cantaloupe Island, Every Day I Have the Blues, Fine Brown Frame, Cissy Strut. Moanin', Big Noise from Winnetka, Put It Where You Want It, Don't Wait Too Long. My Little Suede Shoes, Georgia on my Mind, I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate. Stolen Moments, Hayburner, Pencil Full of Lead, Knock On Wood, Royal Garden Blues, The Preacher, Chitlins Con Carne, Peter Gunn, Mustang Sally and my all time favourite - Watermelon Man.
Congratulations to the Manager at the Prohibition for providing us with this FREE event (& also  a nice bottle of their own ale)
Here’s hoping we are able to bring this band to Ashington Jazz Club sometime during the autumn season, starting in September.
