All quiet on the western front…
…On account of we will all be going to Castlemaine Jazz Festival (Mark 2) this weekend.
Had a call from Glen (Il Duce to those in the know) this week. Apparently the Leinster Arms is not closing down, and he has to keep working until the fines are paid off. Which could take years, hopefully.
Some other things you may not have heard about Glen
He does not own shares in a hairbrush manufacturing company. We can’t imagine why.
Drummer extraordinary… Glen maintains he has played drums with some of the finest rock and roll groups in the country in his youth. Which we are inclined to doubt, as
(a) He doesn’t own a karaoke machine
(b) In his youth? Was rock and roll invented then?
Glen’s first session with the Jazz Jammers was on an electronic drum kit. He may have forgotten this, but we have not.
The Leinster Arms has won a lot of Awards, as one of Melbourne’s finest watering holes. But not since 2010
The Jammers started the Jam sessions at the Leinster Arms in 2010
If you do turn up at the Leinster Arms in a fit of absent mindedness (and let’s face it, that covers most of us), there may be live music this Sunday.
