Bands Wanted for Hoochie Coochie

Warren Thomson, owner of Newcastle's coolest jazz venue - Hoochie Coochie - is starting a weekly live Jazz session on a Thursday at The Hooch (Warren's words!). He intends to offer this to the public free and to try and build a crowd/following of open minded individuals . With this in mind he will be pushing for upbeat funky/swing/bebop types of players as, and I quote, "We are after all a late bar and need  to keep the place lively". 
First session is on Sept. 15 with the Paul Edis Trio followed by the Safe Sextet on Sept. 22.
Bands interested are invited to contact Warren at 
This Sunday (Sept. 11) has the James Taylor Quartet which should be an out and out blast!
