High on Life - Northern Monkey Brass Band CD Launch @ Hoochie Coochie July 6









Two good sets, full of energy and fun and DRIVING RHYTHM !!!  And they played all 6 tracks from their newly launched CD.
 One photo is as per usual, the other is whilst playing ‘Star Wars’ – they take the music seriously and make them fun too – quite an impact !!

  1. Hi Lance, just wanted to let anyone know that if they want to buy the Northern Monkey Brass Band CD, we're not on iTunes or anything like that at the moment, so either catch us at a gig, or you can visit a great independent record shop that's stocking it;
    RPM, 4 Old George Yard, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear NE1 1EZ, 0191 221 0201.
    Cheers

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.

Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
