Desperate New Year

We'd like to wish all our followers a happy new year, and we hope to see you at one of our outings.

So far this year, we are lined up to continue our Sunday Jazz Lunch performances at the Bedford Hotel in Tavistock.  The first one was on Sunday the 3rd of January, and we'll be back on the first Sunday of the month, every other month until the end of the year.  The dates are:

Sunday 1 May
Sunday 3 July
Sunday 4 September
Sunday 6 November

We shall also be back at the Totnes Canoe Festival on the Sunday 7th July.

Titanium Tessa

It was a desperate end to the year for one of our band members!  Tessa, our vocalist and flute player, had a nasty horse-riding accident in December and managed to break all sorts of bits of herself.

Thankfully, a pioneering procedure at Plymouth NHS Trust bolted her ribs back together and - thanks to the medics and her determination she was able to join us on Sunday to play the flute - and even managed a couple of songs.

So it wasn't a heavy new year's eve that resulted in her being seated on Sunday, and we have no doubt that by our next gig, she'll be bopping away like her old self.

Oh, and the horse was fine.  And congratulations to me for not saddling you with lots of horse related puns.  Doh!
