Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Remember When

This month's edition of 'Remember When' features an interview with former George Evans' singer Ivy Barnes on her days at Newcastle's Oxford Galleries. It features photos of the Evans Orchestra including a reunion one that has Zoe's dad Mike Gilby in the trumpet section. A good 50psworth.
Photo below (not from magazine) supplied by Hilary Gilby shows Mike with Zoe, Scott and 'Figaro' Gilby.

I can remember when Mike Gilby regularly played with the River City Jazzmen when they were resident at Ashington Jazz Club. (May be 20+ years ago?)

Mike was by far the one in the band that I most enjoyed listening to as he had a more modern style. I remember the night he said he was packing it all in and I think it was then that Ray Harley got the job.
