Wrapping up a year of some very fine jazz at the Roundhouse – remember the enthralling Keith Nichols/ Nick Ward performance – we are delighted to welcome back local heroes, the High Society Jazz Band, for their annual Christmas thrash. The band’s personnel has now settled down, and is the same as last year (see below), while their popularity has spread to even more foreign parts: try Buxton and Glossop. But they are very glad to have been booked in relatively nearby Staveley for a gig which they always look forward to immensely. The music will be very much the mixture as before, with lots of traditional jazz numbers, the odd Christmas song, and some unclassifiable comedy material – some of which they claim may be intentionally funny. Good time jazz is the watchword for this band, for performers and audience alike.
Peter Boswell – cornet, trombone.
Bruce Carnaffin – clarinet, bass clarinet and vocals
Neil Anderton – keyboard and vocals
Gerry Clayton – double bass and vocals
Dave Bateman -guitar, banjo and vocals
Robin Andrews – drums, washboard and vocals.
