Membershis remained fairly static at 107, despite membership charges increasing to $15 for renewals and $20 for new members.
During 1994, major effort was put into making the jazz nights at the Willows a success. Local bands performed each month, the following outfits usually taking turns:
Sapphire Coast Quartet – comprising Joe Stokman (reeds), Margie Fullerton (piano), Tony Fullerton (elect. bass and trombone), and Ken Vatcher (drums).
Down South Jazz Quartet – comprising Bob Porter (reeds), John Moffatt (sousaphone), Bill McLean (banjo) and Walter Brunton (washboard).
Down South Six – comprising Don Lawrence (reeds), Bob Porter (reeds), Tony Fullerton (trombone), John Moffatt (sousaphone), Bill McLean (banjo) and Ted Daniel (drums).
An unpleasant experience for the Committee occurred in April. A night with the famous Zenith New Orleans Jazz Band at Twyford Hall had to be cancelled at the last moment due to a deplorable lack of interest by members. Zenith accepted a cancellation charge of $400 and undertook to appear at our Black and White Ball in October.
