Here is a photo of the poster for this event - I was there playing with the Seventh City Jazzband and managed to see most of the Sunday afternoon gig.Also a photo of Ken's band and the French Quarter Band.The event was organised by Mike Lunn who was the licensee of the Cabin Inn at that time. The 7th City Band spent many a happy weekend playing there & drinking superb real ale- mainly Hartleys HB which I called " headache brew " due to the after effects ! Hope these are of interest, best wishes John Richardson , Otley , W. Yorkshire.
