December will bring us to our Christmas Party on Thursday 7th December. Bring your party hats!!
HOWEVER I have some sad news for you. Yesterday I was informed that the drummer [Barry Rees] for the Strumble Strutters has suffered a heart attack and is in hospital. Consequently we have had to cancel and postpone their attendance for our December party.
We have now confirmed that the well known West Wales band ‘The Swingin Nettles’ will be able to take over their commitment.
We continue to hope that our Party will entertain and please you. The small dance floor will be cleared – should you wish to avail yourself.
THE SWINGIN NETTLES
The Swingin Nettles are a Gypsy Jazz band from south Pembrokeshire playing in the style of greats such as Stephane Grapelli and Django Rheinhardt.
They are Robbie Godwin (violin, guitar, vocals), Vince Pereczes (guitar vocals), Jerome Duffell (guitar, vocals), David Griffiths (double bass), and Tegid Roberts (clarinet, guitar, vocals). All are veterans of other local bands – Robbie was recently seen performing at Tomos Newman’s album launch in Manorbier and David is also a member of Shanty Le Hara who launched their album a week or so ago in Pembroke.
All songs are taken from the band’s new 12 track album and are classic covers except All Human Beings which was written by Vince.
In the New Year we have:-
Thursday January 11th at the Plas a welcome return of the Hot Club Gallios

On Thursday 19th October last, Around About Dusk entertained us well with some superb playing.
A wonderful evening was appreciated by the appreciative audience at the Plas.
Narberth Jazz presented a suitable cake together with other items of food and drink to him during the interval.
In August we had our third Narberth Jazz Garden Party at Lampeter House.
Well Glastonbury may have mud but Narberth has gentle rain and even a gentle wind, allowing us to begin our Garden Party on Saturday evening 5th August.
We were firstly treated to a wonderful set of music by being entertained by the brilliant group Jassology who with their talented singer Carol Westwood, kicked off the party in fine style with terrific interpretations from the classic American song book. Then we were presented with and enjoyed the music from the amazing Constellation Big Band;
The small but enthusiastic audience responded to the impressive renditions presented by our guest musicians. The end of the Garden Party was in weak sun and low wind – wow what a turn up. A brilliant evening which turned out to be a triumph of determination over the dreadful weather promised. Narberth Jazz would like to thank Mr & Mrs Williams for allowing us to present the event at Lampeter House for our third season.
