Enjoying the vintage times
It was vintage stuff in more ways than one when veteran comedian Jimmy Cricket performed in Maidstone last Saturday.
The famous Irish comedian appeared on stage with the magnificent and very accomplished Vintage Corporation band whose members all come from the Kent region.
Jimmy was also on stage with the band last autumn at the Hawkinge Community Centre in Folkestone. This time it was the Hazlitt Arts Centre in Maidstone.
The band, who recreate the sounds of the 60s and 70s, have worked with many comedians, including Tom O’Connor, Mick Miller, Roy Walker and the Grumbleweeds.
The photo at the top of this page is of Jimmy with Karl, the lead singer of the Vintage Corporation Band.
Jimmy had just returned backstage from his usual mad dash to the theatre’s foyer to sell copies of his DVD when Karl bumped into him – which is why he is carrying a box in the photo!
