Ashington Jazz Club Milestones

6 years since I met Lance for the first time (at The Caedmon Hall) and he said he was starting something called a blog.
5 years since  I took over running Jazz at The Elephant (after the Queens failed as a venue)
4 years since we introduced trios with female singers to Ashington
3 years since the Pimptones blasted out at the Elephant
2 years since Lickety Split brought us up to date in a big band way
1 year ago since we went back to New Orleans with Gavin Lee
Last Wednesday Bebop was spoken here at Ashington and we were brought up to date with Alter Ego and our traddies loved  it!!!!
The most northerly jazz club in  England  -  offering the most diverse range of jazz styles of any jazz club around
Note: We also now celebrate 30 years of Ashington Jazz Club (Also Blaydon Jazz Club which started about the same time)
Next Month we are back to New Orleans with Brian Carrick on Geo. Lewis’ Metal Clarinet and some real JASS ( as Jazz was known in those days).

Great stuff John! A number of fellow musicians have spoken very highly of your club - most notably my father in law Roy Willis of Lickety Split. It was great to witness first hand your audience's loyal devotion to live Jazz on Wednesday. I think I speak for the whole band when I say you have a great club and a terrific, responsive, friendly audience. We had a great gig - thanks so much for having us!
