Last night Doncaster jazz musicians Mark Ellis, Stuart Garside, Paul Grady, Mark Kerrigan, Gareth Smith, Rowena Smith and myself played a dixieland jazz gig at Doncaster Brewery Tap to raise money for Favela Brass.
One of the beers on sale at the brewery is called “Sandhouse” and the band has become collectively known as the “Sandhouse Stompers”. The brewery donated a pound for every pint of Sandhouse beer drunk and between that and the money people dropped into our donations box we raised £162.60 for the project. Thank you ever so much to the musicians, to the brewery and to everyone who came along and donated (and drank!) so generously.
