Marlow jazz club was left “frustrated” after 12 people failed to turn up after reserving seats.

The jazz club was hosting their final night of the year at the Royal British Legion Hall where Liverpudlian guitarist Gary Potter and his Hot Club Quartet took to the stage.

Club organiser, Michael Eagleton, said: “A phone call or e-mail, even a hour before the start time, would have enabled the seats to be re-allocated.

“Similar problems have occurred at many local restaurants, especially, as reported by the Marlow Free Press, at The Duke in Queens Road.”

The audience in attendance was treated to an evening of swinging music in the Django Reinhardt style including a very fast work-out on “Tiger Rag”.

Gary was accompanied by Mike Piggott, violin, Nils Solberg, guitar, vocal, and Peter Hughes, bass.

The Jazz Club’s hand-out on the night announced that no further gigs had been booked at the present time due to the troubling spread of the new coronavirus variant and the likelihood of more restrictions.

However, the club has said they hope to return at some point in 2022.
