NMBB Marching to Hoochie Coochie

Northern Monkey Brass Band, are bringing the spirit of New Orleans Mardi Gras to Newcastle on 12th February at Hoochie Coochie for some unrestrained merrymaking.
As well as the fantastic originals and covers that audiences have come to love and expect from the 8 piece NMBB, the band will include some New Orleans classic tunes in the set.
It'll be a party atmosphere with throws to the crowd, a second line march (parasols welcome).
Mardi Gras can be described as a no holds barred celebration in the spirit of abandonment, so on the 12th Feb, get to Hoochie Coochie, cut loose, throw down and party 'til you drop. As an added incentive, we’ve got Sue Ferris on sax and Russ Morgan playing a mean, cotton-pickin’ snare drum.

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.
