Jazz&Jazz YouTubes
The following Jazz&Jazz YouTubes were filmed at DixieMix’s show stopping gig during Tad Newton’s highly successful St Valentine’s Jazz Weekend at The Castle Theatre, Wellingborough. So brilliant was it, I would have filmed the entire show, but I’m a jazz fan and I was there to enjoy the live performance as much as to take movies! Great to meet you at last, Simon!

    Did they “Steal” the show, or did they do some “Steel” reinforcement, adding to the already sturdy structure of the Valentine’s weekrnd?

  2. R Nelson says:

    Oh dear . . . points out a spelling error and can’t spell “weekend”

  3. Peter Butler says:

    Thanks, R Nelson – correction made! As I rush my posts errors can be made – but hopefully not a rash of them!

  4. Peter Butler says:

    That’s cheered me up! Keep Jazzin! (another error!!!)
