Last night saw true dynamite from the Straight No Chaser Big Band, joined by the delightful singing talent that is Jacqui Sampson, as the band played its first gig of the year at The Hassocks Hotel. We all felt that Jacqui and the band sizzled together through the set, including some new additions to the band’s repertoire. From my seat within the band, I listened in awe to beautifully crafted solos all round, and we were all delighted to see too how much you — our audience — enjoyed the evening. Thank you!
We’re performing fewer times at The Hassocks Hotel this year as we fit in a few more gigs in other venues. Our next performance will be at The Brunswick, Holland Road, Hove on Sunday, 9 March. We’ll be back at The Hassocks Hotel again soon (we love playing there) and will advertise that date soon. Thanks Cai for the images!
