John Mayall at The Bridgewater Hall

Friday 4th November: Mart’s close friend is John Mayall The Blues Singer, Pianist, Guitarist and outstanding harmonica player. Mart, Janet and the family went to see John at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester this evening and the singing and music was superb as always. The music friendship goes back to teenage years when they played together in a teenage jazz band in Cheadle Hulme in the early 1950’s. After Mart had done his National Service he teamed up with John in 1956 to form the “Hounds of Sound” which lasted for a short time before Mart was invited to join The Zenith Six. After the Bridgewater Hall concert tonight John invited his family and friends, which included Janet and Mart to enjoy some really good reminiscing in the musicians room back stage.
