Benny doesn't ride again!

It looked to be yet another great tribute to the late King of Swing, this time at Ronnie Scott's with Pete Long recreating the music of the Benny Goodman Sextet.

It was doubly important as this was also to be the club's first live session that was open to the public at the end of the second lockdown on Dec. 2

However, a lack of  clarity in the media clouded the issue as to whether the lockdown ended at the start of Dec. 2 or at the end of that date.

Our top man on all matters of this nature got on the case and, shaw 'nuff, unless the government does a U-turn (as if) the lockdown remains until midnight so, sadly, it looks as if we'll have to wait a bit Longer* for this eagerly awaited show as it has been removed from the listings.


*Apologies to Pete Long for that inane extension of his name.
