Centre stage guesting on washboard is WGC’s Peartree Club Manager,
Brian Smith (aka Smiffy). The Savoy Jazz Men appear regularly at The Peartree.

Barry Palser and his Savoy Jazz Men are regular visitors to Welwyn Garden City, either at The Peartree Jazz Club or annually for their Christmas Jazz Party at The Irish Club. I’ve been photographing them since their weekend special south of Cambridge celebrating their then “50 Years of Jazzin'” back in September, 2009.

    It is good to see that my old Liverpool University jazzmate Tony Teale is still playing.
    My jazz activities are now confined to listening to live and recorded performances, but I like to keep in touch with friends of mine around the world who retain their love of the music.
