Bop While You Shop - Dec 15

(Review by Russell)
Emerging from the subterranean depths of Central Station Metro station late Saturday morning the sound of a big band could be heard on the concourse. A large ensemble, all togged-up, raising money for charity, it came as no surprise to see that the band's MD was none other than Dave Hignett. The band in question - Prudhoe Community Band - is one of many Tyne Valley outfits led by trumpeter Hignett. No doubt a tidy sum was raised on the day.

Meanwhile, up at Shop-a-holic Central, aka Northumberland Street, it couldn't have been busier; Fenwick's seasonal window attracted a queue a mile long, a helter skelter stood idle on this freezing day, shoppers skirting either side, buskers busked the length and breadth, and there at the junction with Blackett Street, the band for all weathers, Soznak, did its thing with the ever-enthusiastic Jude Murphy singing, dancing and at this juncture, breathing life into what was sure to be a near-frozen flute. Turn a corner and you're sure to find/hear music to feed the soul.
