Book Early for The Old Green River Band’s Fundraiser for the Blind

“The Old Green River Band is one of the most exciting bands I’ve heard in ages. Their music could be described as ‘New Orleans meets RnB’.… I think few bands come closer to the true spirit of New Orleans.” (Peter Kings, p.e.k. Sound)

Martin Bennett’s Old Green River Band will be centre stage at a vital fund raising event for The Royal National College for the Blind, Hereford, on Thursday, 21 February, 2013.

Three months away, maybe, but events for worthy causes merit early publicity.

The Cannock Cricket Club will field the event and the players will take to the floodlit stage at 8.00pm. In the clubhouse mind you, sheltered from a likely February chill which might otherwise stop play.

Jazz musicians might be just as prepared to play in inclement conditions as cricketers but also like cricketers, they are fickle enough to draw the line at 8.00pm on a winter’s evening.

Not so Martin Bennett’s team! They are prepared to brave the elements – in the comfort of the very hospitable clubhouse that is!

So don’t miss out. Make a note of the date now: 8pm on Thursday, 21 February, 2013, at the Cannock Cricket Club, The Morris Ground, Church Lane, Cannock WS11 1RR. Near Walsall.

Tickets £10. Telephone Janice on 01543 570348 to make your bookings.

    Closer to the time, say early March and mid April you must let me have full details about these two events, Martin, for me to post on Jazz & Jazz. Looking forward to getting together with you at The 100 Club in December and The Peartree in January. Then I’ll get my own photos of The Old Green River Band for Jazz & Jazz. And thanks for your kind comments.
