Millennium Eagle Jazz Bands

Millennium Eagle Band January 2016

The News spring 2016

We are delighted, as most Jazzers are, to welcome back "Jazz club 90" to the fold, congratulations to John and Marie for resurecting the Sunday lunch time session (1 till 3 and with Marie's filled rolls!!) at their smart new venue the Albrighton Social Club long may you continue

Like most bands these days we’ve had gig periods of Feast and Famine. Brian Mellor has joined the band now on a permanant basis. So far 2016 has been free from incident Our journeys have taken us to venues all over the UK. That said, you can’t keep your contacts up unless you travel.  It’s been a pleasure seeing so many old friends again.  We’ve had some ecstatic receptions from some of our big Venture Away audiences – but of course to get them you have to get the stage-presence.  It can help if you’re wearing white tuxes! But when you get that response there really is no other feeling like it.  Jazz is a performance art, after all, and the business of “entertaining” has to lift both performer and crowd.  In other words, it’s deep respect for the traditions of classic jazz, our pleasure it certainly is! We keep adding bits and pieces to the repertoire, Jools has splashed out on a wood block and a cowbell !! Pete his multi-brass array, Brian his sousaphone and now backing vocals, Matt his multi array of reeds,Terry with his bagfull of suprises

We hope to make our next CD within the next few weeks, we hope it will be as well recieved as our previous recordings

See you all soon keep Jazzin !!
