Jazz on a Summer’s Day

We played a rush of dates in the Midlands just over a week ago including this nice little do at the annual Hemlock Happening for their Jubilee celebration.  Doing a fifties set for which I styled myself in the manner of Anita O’Day in Jazz on a Summer’s Day, we included some sing along songs and the crowd were great despite the dismal weather.  Local photographer Kayisha Thomas has really captured the atmosphere!  

Also in the pictures are the fantastic local rhythm section the Bob Hudson trio with Bob on keys, Geoff Pearson on double bass and Ian Beestin on drums.  Furthermore, I feel I should point out because of  my ever expanding size that happily Will and I are expecting a baby together due early October!
