The Bash

Went off … NYUC’s report attached. Marvellous how he can still remember to spell Ted Woollan’s name wrong.

The 2015 Jazz Jammers Christmas Party attracted 27 musicians and friends and was a musical feast. 6 hours of non stop music.

Keyboard…………..John Curtis, Lisette Payette, Ted Woolen and Amon (the Mexican connection)
Guitar………………..Peter Ryan, young Andrew and Alex Jarosh.
Bass………………… Ivan Sultanov, Anton Tobing and Carlton.
Electric Cello……. Ian
Drums…………….. .Matthew Bird, Bruce Madigan and Mike Hirsh
clip_image002Trumpet…………. .Tim Cooper
Alto Saxophone. ..Roger Clarke and Alan West
Tenor Saxophone Tim Cooper, Tony, Peter Cole, Colin Garrett
Vocals……………….Maria, Katerina, Suzanne, Christine, Shannon and Joe
Congas……………..the guy who came with the Handlebar crew.

Highlight was a percussion lesson from Alan West (catch it on video on the Jazz Jammers Facebook page)

Best dressed (from a Christmas perspective) was Christine Manetta. (see photo)

Knowledge gained was that you can use an Ipad to photograph a chart if there are not enough to go around.clip_image002[6]

Thanks must go to Glen and Willamina for generously allowing us to use the Atrium for the whole day and to the Leinster staff for their wonderful service.

 

 

The Sunday Jam will recommence on Sunday 17th January 2016. By tradition, no-one turns up for the first one and we spend the whole afternoon going through the Captain Chaos songbook. You could drop in if you are desperate…God knows, we are.
