The monthly Jazz performance at St Peter’s by the Waterfront enjoys the support of several regular IOG members. The May Jazz was provided by the Selion Swing Band with new IOG member Celia Bird singing and playing saxophone – and was much enjoyed by all. Apart from watching the band there is fascination in watching the audience, and how the music stirs them. Some just sit there motionless adsorbing the sounds while others fidget, tap their feet, shake their heads and generally look happy! After each number they all clap enthusiastically because we always have talented musicians.
Always a great evening – excellent location, quality jazz, crisp snacks, and beer, wine and soft drinks available from the bar – or bring your own.
It is monthly on Fridays. The next concert is 2nd June, 7:45, with Helen Abbey’s band. Come listen.
