head into a New Year, many jazz lovers worry that our kind

We had a rousing good Holiday
session with the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Band, with lots of
good Christmas tunes played in the traditional style. Made
it lots of fun mixing trad with Christmas.
We had a great turnout of house
musicians. A few that I didn’t know, and were first timers,

cornet, the stage was packed with musicians – a real “jam”
session, but all had fun. Thanks again to Lynne Meryl for
some really beautiful vocals. We’ll be looking forward next
month to John Gulinello and his Dixie Kings. See you all
