This past Saturday night saw donnie joe’s American Swing in Llandeilo at a lovely little pub, The White Horse Inn. We were performing as part of the Winter Jazz Weekend put on by Evans Evans Brewers who are proud to also put on the Llandeilo Jazz & Blues Festival every summer in the 1st weekend of July.
It is always lively at the White Horse Inn which features a fine selection of some great Ales.
We love playing gigs over the Christmas period as it allows us to dust off some great swinging arrangements of our favourite Christmas hits. Some of the best loved classic Christmas songs were written in the heyday of the Swing Era and performed by our most beloved performers. We always do our best to live up to the legacy they’ve passed on to us.
It was a swinging night and we look forward to returning in the summer in some shape or form to perform for the patrons at the Llandeilo Jazz & Blues Festival.
By the way, Evan Evans also run the Cricketers in Cathedral Road, Cardiff which hosts a Jazz Supper on the last Thursday of each month. Be sure to check it out, as it always features some great South Wales based swing jazz acts. Not to mention the lovely food on offer as well is not to be missed.
