Sunday Afternoon at Hoochie - SSBB - don't miss it!

C'mon and hear, C'mon and hear 
The Strict-ly Smokin' Big Band 
It's just the bestest band what am
(led) by Michael Lamb.
(Lance/Irving Berlin).
This is our first visit to Hoochie Coochie for 2015 and this month we're playing on Fathers Day.
With tickets at a mere £5 its the perfect way to round off your day with dad!
We have three amazing vocalists with us on Sunday (Lindsay Hannon, F'reeze and James Hedley) with the rest of our amazing 20 piece big band in tow.
We always have an absolute blast at Hoochie, so don't miss out this weekend particularly as the monthly residency at the Millstone is off this month due to refurbishment (of the pub not the band!)

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.
