Live jazz at The Woolpack, Surrey

The Woolpack was the local pub of Humphrey Lyttelton’s trombonist/arranger Pete Strange where he regularly met over a pint with fellow musicians and jazz friends. In mid-September 2007 we celebrated his memory with an All-Star Tribute featuring over three hours of high quality Dixieland, Swing and Mainstream jazz.

The success of the event prompted monthly afternoon sessions, with the full support of Angela and Danny. Four excellent bands play in rotation: Pete Skivington’s Dixielanders, the Jack Honeyborne All-Star Sextet, Mike Byrne’s Thameside Seven and John Goddard’s Okeh All-Stars. Well-known musicians include trumpeters Ronnie Hughes, Ken Sims and Chez Chesterman, trombonists Mike Hogh and Phil Brown and reedmen John Barnes and Geoff Driscoll. Jack Honeyborne is a great jazz pianist who has also been MD to top stars such as Eartha Kitt, Vera Lynn and Harry Secombe. Guests have included trumpeter Ken Reece, trombonist Dave Hewett, reedman Goff Dubber and guitarist Johnny McCallum.
