Sussex Jazz Kings – 3 September 2017
The SJS first concert of the season began with the Sussex Jazz Kings. This 6-piece band comprised: Peter Lay (drums), David Price (banjo), Roy Stokes (trombone), Peter Clancy (bass), Bernie Stutt (clarinet) and stepping in for cover today on the trumpet was Gordon Whitworth. Their New Orleans jazz style went down well with a good crowd in attendance. This was the first of a longer concert (12.30-3.00), the others being on 22 October and 17 December. What a welcome back to jazz this was.
