A large and enthusiastic audience enjoyed the Big Band sound of the EMYJO
(East Midlands Youth Jazz Orchestra) at a performance in the Public Hall last
night. The event was in aid of the NSPCC and sponsored by Muller
The youthful and very talented members of the band produced a truly authentic
Big Band sound, including various solo items — perhaps the highlight of the
evening was a rousing solo drum performance which seemed to involve using
every hard surface in the body of the Hall as an instrument — it was just as
well that Olive was not there to see her beloved Hall floor used as a
There were several relaxed vocal items by a couple of the young lads in the
Band, who looked just old enough to be in the Church choir, but produced a
Sinatra-like sound way beyond their years.
The Band, who have appeared at the London Jazz Festival and are veterans of
several foreign tours to Canada and other places, are about to change their
name from EMYJO to the rather more catchy "HotHouse". We wish them well — if
their ongoing performances reflect the one Audlem was privileged to hear last
night, then a successful future is assured.
Mention should also be made of the meal provided for the event using the new
Hall kitchen facilities under the supervison of Paul Ratcliffe — the main
course was a choice of salmon or chicken in a tasty sauce, beautifully
presented with nicely cooked vegetables.
So thankyou to the NSPCC support group (and to Michelle Perkins who persuaded
the Band to come to Audlem) for a very good night out.
