Tonite! DJM @ Prohibition Bar!

Cheshire-born, Paris resident, Daniel John Martin returns to the north tonight to play a few gigs with Mick Shoulder’s Swing Manouche. Arch 3, Brandling Street, Gateshead, is the place to be at eight o’clock. DJM will revel in Prohibition Bar’s 1920s decadence, discreetly tucked away just off the Tyne Bridge. Nearby parking is free after six o’clock, the Quaylink bus service arrives and departs outside the West Door at Sage Gateshead, a mere two minutes’ walk from Arch 3 and Gateshead Metro is a matter of five minutes, if that, from a night of swinging speakeasy Manouche jazz! Grappelli is your man? Make a point of getting along tonight, you won’t believe how good DJM is!

Eight sharp, £8.00. on the door. C’est bon! Le jazz hot!

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.
