Dear Peter,
I am pleased that you all got home safely and glad that your tour was so successful.
I have had a chance to talk to a number of people who came to our 'Jazz Nite' and am happy to tell you that all enjoyed your performance. One couple said that they attend a number of live music events and often pay as much as £50 for music no where near as good as Storyville J B.
It was a very good night. Well done and thank you.  When you play well I look good for booking you.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and that was said by the other two families as well. We had the opportunity to learn more about you and your band.
We begin to put together the 2019 program of fund raising events in July.
Dear Peter
Our members so much enjoyed your performance last week at our Club night; very rarely do a band get a standing ovation!!
I am attaching the review of the evening which will go on our Facebook page and Newsletter.  Please feel free to use it when promoting your band.
If you are going to be in the UK in 2020, please let me know when so that we can invite you to perform for us again.  At the moment the diary for 2020 is free!!!

Bericht: Hello Peter,
Will you please publish this review on your website: Storyville Jassband made a very welcome return visit to our club on the 29th April 2018, and gave an excellent and enthusiastic performance, this encouraged the dancing members of the club to occupier the dance floor the whole evening.  At the end of the evening all our members and guests gave a rightly deserved Standing Ovation.  We invited them to play again at our club during 2019.

Kind regards and Best wishes to you and the other members of the band. Roy

Hallo Peter het was een fantastisch en enthousiast optreden van jullie, je hebt het aan het publiek gezien, men bleef tot het laatst ondanks de frisse avond.

Ik weet dat jullie in Engeland zitten en wens jullie allen een fijn optreden daar.
Ik hoor tzt wel van je,
Nogmaals bedankt namens ons bestuur, gr Kees

STORYVILLE JASSBAND from HOLLAND, who gave us a wonderful evening back in August 2015 are on tour and back here again this FRIDAY, 28th APRIL 2017 at our FARNBOROUGH JAZZ CLUB.  The band members are MICHEL MULLER (trumpet/vocals), HENK VAN DE VEN (clarinet), PETER DOBBE (trombone/ guitar/vocals), HENK VAN MULLIGEN (banjo), HEIN VAN ROOIJEN (double bass) and STEF GEURTS (drums).  It will be Michel’s first time of playing here at Farnborough, but Stef was here before with the Limehouse Jazz Band back in 2014.  I’m looking forward to seeing them again, if you read my newsletter about their evening here in August 2015, you will see I tell of them bringing the ‘house down’

Reviews Jazz  Clubs  Tour 2016

 

Roy Thompson, Colchester Jazz Club:

"All the members of the club really enjoyed the performance of the band last night, a fantastic evening, which encouraged the members to dance. 

When you plan your next UK tour, will you please include our club within your plans; as we will be delighted to offer the band a gig on a Sunday evening."

 

Stuart Currie, Barnsley Jazz Club:

"The men of the Storyville Jassband were wonderful on Monday!  The general opinion in the club was that it was the best band they had heard for many years.  There was talk of a tour next year.  If this happens please include Barnsley Jazz Club."

 

Bob Eley, Kingsbridge Jazz Club:

"I must thank you for a truly remarkable evening of wonderful music, played by very accomplished musicians.

They all provided some stunning music, studded with very entertaining and spontaneous humour which resulted in a memorable evening of first class entertainment. 

Our audience responded, as one would expect, with enthusiastic cheers and applause throughout the entire evening. Some new visitors signed up as club members on the strength of the performance. The evening ended up with a deserved standing ovation."

 

James Scanlon, Kingsbridge Jazz Club:

"The performances from all players were superb. A band that is as established as this one has a very polished ensemble. Some of the comments from the audience I heard were “stunning”, “fabulous”, and “memorable”. 

Their repertoire included such favorites as “The man I love”, “Riverside blues” and “Sweethearts on parade”

Every performer was outstanding in their discipline, which gave us a plethora of superb solos. A treat came from trombone player Peter Dobbe when he took up his guitar and gave us a Django Reinhardt composition for which he received an explosion of applause from the audience.

Hazel Fox, Pump House Jazz Club:

"The band went down a storm and there is no question that we shall welcome them back.

 

Everyone cheered and shouted for more music at the end which is quite unusual with our audiences, so, yes, they were wonderful and such nice people."

Storryville Jassband in kasteel Doornenburg

 

In de goed gevulde ridderzaal van kasteel Doornenburg speelde de Storryville Jassband afgelopen zaterdagavond 27 januari in een nieuwe bezetting een weergaloos concert.

De klarinettist en banjospeler speelden deze avond voor het eerst mee en de kwaliteit van de band is er merkbaar op vooruit gegaan.

Vooral de klarinettist is een aanwinst voor deze bijna 60 jaar oude band. De prachtige klanken die hij uit zijn instrument weet te krijgen zijn een genot om naar te luisteren.

 

Ook de fantastische drumsolo aan het eind van de 2e act kon op een warm applaus van het enthousiaste publiek rekenen. De band eindige het optreden na ruim 3 uur met een lied van Louis Armstrong dat van toepassing was op de hele avond: What a wonderful world.
