Pub jazz band confirms next gig will last forever
A PUB jazz band has confirmed that its next gig will never end.
The Long Hot Summer Jazz Quintet plays a regular weekly slot at The Grapes in Swindon and locals have confirmed that some of their gigs have lasted for up to six days.
Jazz trombonist Tom Booker said: “As a married father of two I can see why this infinite jam session could impact on my home life.
“But, I told my wife when I married her, ‘Don’t ask me choose between semi-professional jazz trombone and having a family because you really won’t like my answer’.
“Plus, the kids can always pop into the pub if they want to see me as it’s a child friendly bar.
“Given that it also has never-ending live jazz, you’d think it would be a lot busier.”
