The concert featured the
THE JACK SHARPE BIG BAND
and renowned percussionist ERIC DELANEY



The day was a resounding success, with over 400 people attending and
enjoying the top line-up of London jazz musicians specially assembled for the day. 
Guest star Eric Delaney showed what could be done with four timpani and a set of brushes,
Stan Kenton's version of "The Ride of the Valkyries" stole the show and the spectacular finale
with eight extra drummers in "Children of Sanchez" lifted the Floral Hall canopy a few inches! 


The retiring collection in aid of the ROH BenClub and MU Benevolent Fund raised around £1300.
