Jazz @ Pizza on the Square - LEEDS, October 30. TESSA SMITH QUARTET

I'm just getting in touch as, basically, we're trying to start up a Jazz evening at Pizza Express in Leeds (like they have down in London) and the first one is on the 30th of this month. If we can get lots of people there and show the venue that there is a market for it up here, then hopefully it'll become a monthly event.
However, in order to fill the 150 capacity restaurant, I need northern jazz fans to help.
The doors open at 6:30pm, and the band is on at 8:00pm - the idea being that you come in for your dinner and stay for the show. Entry is £10 (£8 for concessions) and booking available from 17th Oct.
To register your interest email tessasmithquartet@googlemail.com leaving name and phone number and I'll remind you nearer the time to buy a ticket.
The success of this really depends on ticket sales, so I'd really really appreciate the help of you guys up here!
Hope to see you all soon, and thanks in advance. It'll be a great night, I'm already really really really looking forward to it!
Tessa xx
PS: I'd also love to do a gig in Newcastle if anyone can suggest a suitable venue...
