The Blue Notes at Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival

Last weekend welovebearwood went to the Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival and had a brilliant time.

We wanted to share The Hearing Aid’s review of the Bluenotes set with you as they played a really moving tribute to Andy Hamilton.

“Following the recent death of their leader, legendary jazz saxophonist Andy Hamilton, The Bluenotes could’ve been forgiven for pulling out of the festival altogether.

Instead they chose to play on in tribute to him and what a tribute it turned out to be.

The performance of one of Andy’s favourites songs, Blue Skies, by his vocalist and friend Vic Evans (voice as rich as 20 year old Jamaican rum) was incredibly moving.

It’s an old cliché but they really don’t make ‘em like this anymore. “

P.S. Have you signed the online petition to name Lightwoods Park's bandstand the Andy Hamilton Bandstand?  Please make sure you do - here's the link.
