Wombats Cancelled!!!

MESSAGE today from Bill Kerr via Tony Orr advising that the Wombat Jazz Band gig which was to take place at the Gannawarra Centre, Essendon North on Sunday 20 October has been cancelled.

Tony writes: Unfortunately this gig has been cancelled for reasons best known to the organizers. Sorry but, these things happen.

In any case, your article was a good bit of publicity for the band. Our regular third Monday of the month at the Elsternwick Hotel, 59 Brighton Rd, Elwood, is still on (next 21st Oct) and we would love to see as many there as possible. We still have a consistent crowd of regulars and old friends attending and nowadays, we do a blend of American and Australian tunes. You know the old saying “bookings essential” and we welcome new faces. Bookings: 9531 3218

Still the same lineup of recent years:
Bill Kerr, reeds
Ken Collins, trumpet
Judy Taylor, piano
Ian Smith, bass
Jacqui O’Neill, washbord
Tony Orr, banjo

Best regards
Tony Orr

  1. Yes very disappointed at the Wombats being cancelled at the Elsternwick Hotel. We as musicians loved going up there for a reasonably priced meal, seeing many friends & Bill being so kind as to let us ‘sit in’ for a bracket which was always enjoyable. Vale

  2. I’m one of a group of disappointed ‘regulars’ at Elsternwick pub. We’ve enjoyed your 3rd Monday evenings for years. Vale!
