Steve Waddell on the comeback trail

Steve Waddell

A COUPLE of days ago I brought you the good news that Steve Waddell had made a welcome return to playing as a special guest with Doug Rawson’s Sobriety Five. Here are a couple of images of the Five (expanded to a Seven) taken last Wednesday at the Clayton RSL by the Victorian Jazz Club’s ace photographer, Ron “Flash Harry” Jobe.

Harry Daniels, President of the Peninsula Jazz Club emailed yesterday that Steve Waddell’s Creole Bells will again be presenting themselves at the PLC afternoon concert on Sunday 24 November 2013 at the Patterson Lakes Community Centre. It will be a year since the Creole Bells performed at Patterson Lakes. Last year Steve was MC and sang, but didn’t play. This year we hope that he will be able to lead the band with trombone in hand.
