HOOCHIE COOCHIE.DFDS & JUMPIN HOT CLUB PRESENT....FUNK & SOUL SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Newcastle is buzzing after the soul and funk weekend trip to Amsterdam on the 13th-15th November where Smoove and Terrell were joined by the Brand New Heavies and the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club on the DFDS mini cruise.
Those who were not able to take the trip will be able to join the party at Hoochie Coochie on the 15th November for a free funk and soul Sunday. The day will be hosted by Warren Thomson from Hoochie and from SOSA Dave Hancock. Special guest will be DJ Smoove from Smoove and Terrell “fresh” from 48 hours in Amsterdam. The party will run from 11am-4pm and will feature the finest northern and modern soul, funk and house. It's going to be some party with revellers from the cruise coming straight to Hoochie Coochie with tales of their trip to Amsterdam plus a strong contingent of Dutch funk and soul fans who will be spending the day in Newcastle before returning to Holland.
Hoochie Coochie will close at 4pm & re-open @ 5.30pm for a gig by Groove Train, tickets £5.

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.
