The George Hotel, Brecon Celebrates 30 years of Brecon Jazz with donnie joe’s American Swing
This past Saturday was the last gig for donnie joe’s American Swing in 2014. This time we were invited up to the The George Hotel in the heart of Brecon. The George is a Evans Evans pub and they were putting on a series of Jazz acts to celebrate 30 Years of Brecon Jazz.
Brecon Jazz has evolved and grown over the past three decades, and The George has always been a part of it. In most recent times The George has played host to some of the best local Welsh Jazz performers as part of the ever growing ‘Fringe’ jazz festival that runs alongside the main Brecon Jazz festival.
We started the proceedings off at 2pm with 2 swinging sets of music. Being that it was just past Christmas and before New Years Eve, we couldn’t resist but play a couple of Christmas numbers.
We were followed by the great Tudor with his Kings of Rhythm all the way from Pembrokeshire. It was a perfect way for us to cap off 2014.
Happy Holidays everyone and here’s hoping for another great year in 2015.
