A Lighter Shade of Pink

There seems to be some confusion at present regarding the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op and the Jazz Café in Pink Lane.
I’ve been asked to point out that these are two separate organisations and the slight connection is tenuous to say the least.
Basically the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op is planning on buying, through a share issue, the Globe Pub in Railway St and developing it as a jazz venue.
The Jazz Café, a long established jazz haunt recently refurbished following the death of the previous incumbent Keith Crombie, will continue to promote jazz events in the Pink Lane venue and will not be moving to Railway St.
The Pink Lane Jazz Co-op are at present running monthly Friday night sessions at the Jazz Café.
The Jazz Café has been chosen as the Late Night Club for this year’s GIJF and the upstairs venue will be ready for the sessions which start on Friday (April 4) with the Alan Law Trio A.K.A. ALT
Prospective investors in the share issue are advised to contact the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op and not the Jazz Café in Pink Lane.
So now you know and may clarity prevail.
Oh yes - Sage Gateshead also has a Jazz Café session on the concourse tonight (March 28) featuring Anth Purdy in a solo guitar recital... Nothing to do with the other two!

Was very useful reminder. You were right, it is very confusing.

Nicely put - but they do LOOK rather similar to an uninformed passer-by

Your shades of pink have clarified this issue for me Lance!
