Peter Fairman's Pictures from 2014 May/August

One of the joys of the club is that customers help. Peter Fairman attends most gigs, and discreetly takes flashless photographs. We have used them on our Facebook page, but we thought that it would be good to start a chronicle of pictures for each gig.

The Horn Factory
22 August 2014
How great to be back from our summer break, to the sound of an 18 piece big band. We worked in proscenium style, so Peter Fairman could not get close, so we only have group shots.

Clark Tracey Quintet

These photographs were taken by Dave Lyons, not Peter Fairman. The gig was ever so much better than the photos!
I don't know why the lads are on their sides: will work it out later.
