Unfortunately Dave is still in hospital so many changes like posts and galleries are not going to be available for a while. Dave is still on email, feel free to get in contact if there’s anything you feel needs to be done.
If you become a Friend of Fleece Jazz, your yearly subscription will give you a £4 discount on every gig you attend, and a bonus free gig after your Friends card has been fully stamped. Pretty good for £45, eh? Just see Peter on the megastore at gigs.
If you live a bit of a distance away, there is a special hotel deal. A double occupancy room, breakfast, and, oh yes, two jazz tickets, all for £109 is a pretty good deal. This is subject to availability. Call the hotel on 01206 262836.
Sadly we do seem to have a problem. Recently we have had more losses than profits and our cash reserve has vanished. That this state of affairs should arise as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary is I am sure you will agree, sadly ironic. The short answer is, “bums on seats” or to be accurate, not enough bums on our seats. Every week I implore you to come again soon and bring all your friends, or at least, some of them, so please, please try to do that and keep us, and jazz, alive in Suffolk.
Just to remind you, we are a voluntary organisation with no external help or funding so whether we sink or swim is in your hands. Keep us afloat please!

Just so you know, most of these posts have been and will be written by Dave Lyons, and proofread (and sometimes rewritten) by his wife, Roberta, who’s patience over many years is astonishing.
We like to keep notes of gigs as they go by. But please, this is still experimental.
This blog began with the 30 October 2018 gig, the Matt Wates Sextet.
