Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, August 3rd

It seems incredible, but its Jazz Club time again on Tuesday! This months musical guests are the wonderful Dart Valley Stompers, a local band ably led by Jeremy Hugget. This six piece band plays  a selection of New Orleans Jazz and a choice of music from the 1920’s and 30’s. Jeremy leads the band, playing clarinet and saxes and also lends his distinctive vocals to the music. The band has performed regularly at various jazz clubs and festivals around the UK and they make a welcome return as one of the clubs regulars. The members of the band include Graham Trevarton on trumpet and vocals, Ron Milford on trombone and vocals, the rhythm section comprises Howard Williams on banjo and guitar, Tony Mann on double bass, and Chris Stockings on drums.
