Very happy 86th birthday Chris! Looking forward to your concert in Bromley!
Indeed. Thanks for many, many years of great music.
Belated 60th birthday greetings and thanks also for the fabulous concert at the Kings Theatre in Southsea last night. I enjoyed it if anything more than my first taste of a Barber band around 60 years ago.
Janet & I have seen the band on many occasions since our our first meeting in 1961 and always found it refreshing whatever the line- up and style of jazz/blues played. Last night was no exception with 10 exceptional musicians gelling as a superb unit. It left us wondering how Chris, at the recently attained age of 86, still manages such wonderful trombone work, sings so well, leads the band and virtually never leaves the stage throughout an evening. You are a lesson for us all to remain active and enjoy life to the full as we grow older.
