Band aid needed

MUSICIANS are wanted in a bid to form a new jazz band to play in pubs around the Alnwick area.

Peter Atkinson, from Warkworth, a former banjo player with the Tweed River Jazz Band, is keen to attract a range of instrument players including trumpet, clarinet, bass, drums and perhaps keyboards, to create the group.

Recruits do not have to be top quality or have been in a band before, but just need a sense of fun, a reasonable ability to play their instrument and a desire to be in a band.

The group’s philosophy will be good old foot-tapping music played by people who are out to enjoy themselves.

Anyone interested should email Peter at
