Venues and Bands ; The Captain and I have spent the week trying to rustle up more venues – and the funds to pay for them. We now have more bands that have registered their interest than we currently have space for. Some of them are damn good, too. This week’s haul: a few trad bands on the old crusty wing, and avant garde Aurora Lumina at the other edge. Much talk of “spectrum” this week, as we are keen to offer a wide range of jazz styles.

The missing musician malarkey: We have a surprisingly large database of musicians – some of whom would be eagerly awaiting your call if you are one or two short.

The Committee: Met this week, cast a despairing eye over the bar chart (it is going vertical as we speak) and set about planning a media campaign.

Facebook/Whats App/Twitter: Facebook site up and running, thanks to the Bowls Club boys.

The Website We have put up details and photos on the first 40 or so bands, a few more still to come. Next task is to get some interior shost of the venues – they are surprisingly shmicko, with two big stages in the Bowls club and the RSL.
