Tonight at the Cricketers Jazz Bar we take you down to the ‘Big Easy’ – New Orleans – for a night of down home N’Orleans dance hall music. Don’t forget about Carlo’s delicious Creole cooking too! With me – for a first visit to Southend – will be the legendary BRIAN WHITE (clarinet) CHRIS GOWER (trombone) BRIAN MASTERS (also a first-time guest on banjo) ROGER CURPHEY (bass) and ALAN CLARKE (drums). In short a good old helping of that ‘good ol’ Dixieland!’. Address as usual is 228 London Road, Southend SS0 7JG and (as usual again) the music’s free. But if you want to book to eat please call Cassie or Christina on 01702 345053 to be sure to book a table. See you there!
