Bird evicted From Treehouse

The word on the lips of the breeze is that live music is to cease at Alnwick's Treehouse Restaurant once existing contracts have been honoured. The venue, a regular weekly jazz gig for duos, is the latest victim of a cost cutting exercise across the board not just here but nationwide.
Whilst I do feel a pang of guilt at never having been to the Treehouse it also raises the question as to whether music and menus are compatible. Does the one enhance or detract from the other?
