Recent rehearsals at The Cockpit have seen NYJO1 and NYJO2 getting back into the swing of term-time practice again. Both bands first gig since September will be NYJO’s 45th Anniversary bash at the 100 Club on Sunday 10 October.
With dozens of alumni featuring in the NYJO Originals and NYJO Allstars bands the afternoon and evening are shaping up to be really memorable, and a great event to connect NYJO past with NYJO present.
In memory of Dick Morrissey and Chris Dagley, OBE Bill Ashton recently set up an independent record label, Stanza Records, especially to print an ‘Official Bootleg’ album including music played by Dick and Chris. Those present at the gig on Sunday are welcome to purchase the limited edition album, much of the proceeds of which will be donated to Chris Dagley’s family.
