Jazz on Wearside!

In recent times, with the honourable exception of the Great North Big Band Jazz Festival, jazz on Wearside has been a bit thin on the ground. This Sunday (Jan 14) that is about to change thanks to Bradley Johnston wandering into an old fire station in Sunderland city centre. Closed for many years, the building has recently reopened as a comfortable café/bar/performance space. Bradley asked the proprietor if there was the chance of a gig. 
Well, let’s make that a weekly residency! 
As is the way with these things your support could help Bradley secure the gig on a long term basis.  The Fire Station is next to the Dun Cow pub, adjacent to Sunderland Empire. The address is: The Fire Station, High St West, Sunderland SR1 3DT. Top class jazz guitar on Wearside, Sundays at six o’clock, free admission.

It's been thin on the ground since I started gigging around 1970! Not for nothing is Sunderland known as the cultural dead centre of the North! So, fellow Mackems, prove me wrong by supporting this venture - who knows, it might be the start of something big......?
