Wednesday, 28th January – saw The Double A Jazz Band led by banjoist, Reg Packer – on stage for the first time at the Victorian Jazz Club, and they certainly did not disappoint.
The 7 piece band played lots of good old numbers of the 30s and 40s, and gave the appreciative audience good value for their money.
Saturday 7th February was a great night at the Clayton RSL with entertainment provided by the very lively New orleans Connection – a band led by trombonist Paul Ingle. Paul spends some time in the US from time to time, and returned last year full of enthusiasm for forming his own type of New Orleans group. This has proved to be most successful at Festivals and at various Jazz Clubs, and the band certainly gave a wonderful evening of music for both dancers and onlookers on 7th February. We hope to have them back again before too long.
