Thank you for the link, just sent my brother in law the link as he has tickets for the gig and lives in Perth, wish we were visiting him at this time. He used to see them play quite frequently in and around Fremantle but not for some time recently
Actually my brother in law is actually there now, just sent me a photo of Hank playing and which unfortunately can't post on here This is what he wrote
Hi John. Yes we are in Margaret River for 3 nights at the Guitar Festival. Some amazing fabulous musicians. Plus of course Hank Marvin’s Gypsy Jazz. Hank’s guitar playing (jazz style) gets better. He cracked a few jokes and although he is now completely grey, still looks a very youthful 81. He played Nivram, Guitar Tango and Django’s Castle. A fabulous 1 hour show. We had great seats.
It was certainly a great concert: 4 virtuosos (Hank, Nunzio, Gary and the acoustic bass player) playing tight arrangements and having a ball in front of a very appreciative audience. Also, a lot of the arrangements veered a bit more towards swing rather than a strict Gypsy style.
