Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra Saturday 10th June 2017

Wow!

We had an amazing time on Saturday playing to a packed audience at St. Luke’s Church Cranham. We have played there annually for the past four years and it was a pleasure to be back there, this time in conjunction with a charity for Dalit women and children in India, for which we raised an amazing £577.00 through selling handmade elephants and ticket sales. We premiered some new material, all of which was well received, but many audience members again reminded me that their favourite tune was Big Bertha, an imaginary woman who has somehow become synonymous with the band! The four new tunes; Troll In The Dungeon, Hiding From Jan, Grand Canary Hotel and The Thing That’s Not A Thing were great fun to play and I am really pleased with this new original music!

We were lucky enough to have local photographer Peter Watt to take some photos of the band and he has put together a stunning collection of shots to capture the evening which are shown below.

It is such an exciting year! More photos and maybe even a cheeky bootleg recording to come, watch out on Facebook for a collection of all the photos from the gig rather than this select few!
