Mike has played with The Hales Street Stompers, who play at The Red Lion in Market Drayton on the last Thursday of each month, for over 10 years. It has become a well-established tradition that The Stompers and 3 In A Bar join forces for the December session. Here is a selection of tracks from a most enjoyable evening.
THE HALES STREET STOMPERS: David Sherwood (cornet); Mike Schofield (clarinet); Mike Gray (baritone sax); Jim Pickford (banjo); Ray Lawrence (bass): Roy Bickley (drums), plus special guests Wrexham-based reedman Bill Basey (soprano sax) and 3 In A Bar's Brian Jones (keyboard).
3 IN A BAR: Mike Gray (soprano & tenor saxes); Emily Floyd (vocals and tenor sax); Brian Jones (keyboard); Paul Hobbs (guitar); Dave Towers (bass); Chris Jones (drums)
A Good Time was had by all!
