Many thanks to all those that attended our 2019 Valentines gig at Needham! And also cheers to Nigel who provided an excellent 'record hop' with a swing flavour!


The organisers of last Saturday’ Blackjack '59 gig at Needham Market Community Centre have informed us that the event raised £450 for ‘Traceys Legacy’, which supports a numbers of national charities. They have already allocated some of the money in aid of Marie Curie. Once again, thanks again to all those who came along on Saturday.Blackjack '59
