Preview: Pasadena Roof Orchestra at the Customs House tomorrow night (March 28)

Tomorrow night (March 28) at the Customs House, South Shields, sees the return of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra. These musical historians, like our own New Century Ragtime Orchestra, never fail to put on a great show. That the music is pre-1940 doesn't matter. Music is music, it's timeless and this band includes some of the best players in the idiom which is, of course, jazz but, also, entertainment.

Don't miss it, your only disappointment will be that space precludes you getting up to Charleston or shake your Black Bottom.

Last time I heard them was in 2016 - review.

I'll be there - vo-do-deo-do - that's all!
