ï»¿Mick Mulligan and his Band
Mick Mulligan is one of the young veterans of British Jazz. Early this year he formed a new band which includes several members of the much lamented â Christie Brothers Stompers.â Mick, himself, professes a high disregard for advance publicity, and prefers that you should assess the bandâs worth on todayâs performance.
George Melly Is something of a contradiction. To his audiences he is the personification of joie-de-vivre, and his riotous performances are apt to give the impression of an untroubled extrovert. But his excellent stage style and polished performance are really the result of considerable study and forethought by the real George Mellyânewly, wed. Chelsea dweller and poodle owner, who collects â Victorlana â and is deeply interested in the Arts. If you look beyond the antics and the slapstick which accompany George's vocals you will see the real reason for his successâ sincerity.
