Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club - Latest.

Saturday 1st September sees the first gig at our new venue in The Dolphin Centre, which is situated centrally in Darlington's Market Square.
The facilities provided in the Dolphin Centre are excellent. Good car parking is available nearby and, being centrally situated, all bus services are within easy walking distance.
A Bistro Bar is available for all your refreshment needs.
Opening the new lunchtime season are The New Century Ragtime Orchestra. Unique in Britain, this 12 piece orchestra will take you on a musical journey from the dawn of ragtime, through the hot jazz and dance music of the 1920s, to the early swing era of the 1930s.
Ticket prices remain unchanged at £8.50, and may be purchased in advance from the Dolphin Centre, Horse Market, Darlington, DL1 5RP, Telephone 01325 388406, or alternatively on the door.
It’s a 12.30p.m start and we finish round about 3.30p.m. How’s that for value for money in these hard times?
We look forward to meeting all our old jazz friends and also welcoming new jazz fans to our audience. (Perhaps you didn’t know we existed hidden away in the Arts Centre for all those years)
Remember we aim to ‘Keep Music Live’, and promote jazz, from ragtime to swing, the first Saturday of the month.
Ray and Graham.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
