This Blog is about The Adverts!!

Coming up in the next few weeks we have some wonderful gigs lines up for you at the Hedsor Social Club.

Hedsor Jazz has a regular rhythm section, and usually a regular front line, all called “The Clive Burton Quintet”. However, THIS WEEK ONLY on Thursday 29th March behind our regular front line of Clive Burton and Mike Wills we have an alternative rhythm section!

On Keyboard Mr. Ken McCarthy
On Bass Mr. Steve Pickings
On Drums Mr. Mike Jeffries

And you can hear all of them this Thursday at Hedsor for JUST £5!!

BUT (notice it is a big but) on Thursday 5th April we have a super “stellar” star guest.

We welcome back, on a day VERY near her birthday, that lady saxophonist Tracey Mendham, backed by our usual, regular, Boys in the Band!

Not, as those who have been Traceyed before know, that anything on this night will be usual or regular. Last time she came, some of our regular customers were saying at the end of a brilliant evening that they would have paid £20 for an evening like that at Ronnie’s. We will charge you just £5! Come early, last time it was standing room only, and some of that was done in the other bar!

But Hedsor Jazz does not rest easily on its laurels (have you ever tried?). The following week we have not one guest but two. Saxophonists both, Vasilis Xenopoulos and Peter Cook. Most of you will know the names. Vasilis is a Master of Music from Berklee, but at one time Peter Cook was one of his tutors.

I know we could fill the big room at Hedsor for this gig, but they want to do the gig in the bar, where both have played before, and where once before they played together. They are now both big star names (go on line and look them up) and they want to play for us just as they did some years ago. Come and listen, come early, and we will still only charge you £5, yes, not a typo, just £5 for this evening. Put it firmly in your diary now.

But Hedsor jazz haven’t stopped here. We have ANOTHER date for your diary. This time for a Thursday in the Big Room at Hedsor, because we cannot get the entire band in the bar!!

On Thursday May17th we are having a visit from the 17 piece big band "The Remix Jazz Orchestra" led by trumpeter Stuart Henderson. This will cost you a bit more, £10, but we will tempt you with a little light supper, and an earlier start of 8pm. Do take a look at their website  and but put the date in that diary NOW.

A London Palladium Event

Someone from my past has asked me to remind you of a special event:-

Hi Geoff,
Any chance of a further plug for the Buddy Rich concert please, and a reminder that there is a coach going from Cookham – £60, including ticket (in the Stalls). Every Big Band fan should be there!

That is on Monday 2nd April. Contact Toby Cruse via

Those of you on my nag list will get a poster too!!

Well, after telling you so much good news, I need to find my laurel rest!!

TTFN  Geoff
