MSJ are back on the Sunniside of the Street

It was only a few days ago that I posted the sad news the Potter's Wheel in Sunniside had closed its doors for good leaving the long-established Maine Street Jazzmen without a Thursday night gig.
But, you can't keep a good band down and as one door closes, rather than another one slamming you in the face, on this occasion, another one opens.
Hello Sunniside Club.
The band resume activities at this new venue on Thursday, April 12 at 8:30pm. It's free and not far from the Potters so it shouldn't present a problem for the band's followers.
Full address is: Sunniside Club, Hollywell Lane, off Sunniside Rd., Sunniside, Gateshead*, NE16 5NJ. 0191 4887347.

*Actual postal address is Newcastle but don't go there!
