Vieux Carré Jazzmen's Alternative Venue

The Vieux Carré Jazzmen are now alternating their weekly sessions in South Gosforth between The Victory and The Millstone pubs. Next Thursday (September 17) they are at THE VICTORYKillingworth Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, South Gosforth NE3 1SY. Tel: 0191 285 1254. 1.00 - 3.00pm. The following Thursday (September 24), it’s THE MILLSTONE, Haddricks Mill Road, South Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 1QL. Tel: 0191 285 3429. 1.00 - 3.00pm. 
Both pubs offer an excellent choice of food and ales and it's just a short walk from one to the other. 
You'll have no problem finding them on a Thursday afternoon in South Gosforth – just listen for the dulcet tones of the banjo floating on the breeze.  
Lance.
PS: Both gigs are free.

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.
