RIVIERA RAMBLERS

 

NOT JUST YOUR ORDINARY JAZZBAND!

FUN, MELODIC, ROMANTIC, NOSTALGIC, SWINGING, ENTERTAINING JAZZ

ENJOYABLE, SOCIABLE MUSIC FOR LISTENING AND DANCING

GOOD NEWS!    We're back at the Olde Smokey on the first Wednesday of the month - from October 6th!   And we had a great night.   It was so good to meet up again with lots of our former "regulars" who we'd not seen for over a year - and to see many new faces, too.   It was virtually a full house - and we look forward to seeing you on November 3rd.

 

ANOTHER NEW PUB GIG!   Pop in for a pint at the SARACEN'S HEAD, Newton Abbot, on Sunday afternoon, November 14th.   It's just off Queen Street, on Fairfield Terrace, and the session has been arranged by one of the "regulars" who used to hear us at the Crown & Sceptre.   Come and support him (and us) - we start at 2.00 pm.

 

SAD NEWS!   There won't be any jazz weekends at ST. AUDRIES BAY in 2022.   A change of policy means that chalet accommodation will no longer be available and so the proposed dates have been removed from the diary.

 

GOOD NEWS!   Our regular monthly gigs at Dartmouth, Bickington, Ashburton and Bishopsteignton are all continuing, along with our several sporadic ramblings to other venues in the South West.   It's always great to see you and your friends.   Please keep spreading the word!
