Stubby’s Jazz Band came to St Teath on Saturday 24th June, with guests Bailey and Tom Jackson. Our hosts were Sue and Tom in the Old Vicarage Garden, with cakes, Pimms, Raffle and an audience of nearly 200. This fundraiser was to raise money for new bell ropes and we were delighted to exceed our target!
Stubby’s Jazz Band played a selection of big band numbers from New Orleans classics like Oh When the Saints, right through to Blue Train and Milestones. Bailey included three numbers from Oliver! ready for when she plays Nancy in St Teath School’s production next week. Tom treated us to some stunning improvisation work in standards including Ol’Man River and What a Wonderful World. A beautiful, quintessential, Cornish summer evening…….
