Haymakers jazz club card

The first membership card for the jazz club, issued to himself by a commitee member. In the ’60s, many pubs in Cambridge featured live music, often traditional jazz. The ’Haymakers’ club was a modern/bebop venue, started by local saxophonist Percy Seeby, who also led the house quartet. The club ran one night a week and often brought in nationally known musicians to guest. The ’donkey work’ of running the club was done by John Clarke and other local jazz fans. Admission, as I recall, was around two shillings (ten pence!).
