Dutch Treat

If your tastes run to something more modern (or vice versa) than 1920s dance music then, on the same day at the same time as the tea dancers are turkey trotting on the Terrace at Fenwicks, you may (and I did say may) prefer to Charleston on down the Metro to South Shields for ...
THE OLD FASHIONERS Sunday 28th September at 12 noon AT THE CUSTOMS HOUSE, SOUTH SHIELDS The Old Fashioners were formed in 1974, and today’s line up (a good mix of youth and experience) makes them one of Holland’s hottest bands. They play a mixture of jazz standards, ragtime, New Orleans classics, gospel numbers, pop tunes and of course the blues, in a style they very correctly describe as “energetic trad jazz”, because these chaps certainly give their all at each performance. Reminiscent at times of the great days of the Acker Bilk and Chris Barber bands - listen for The Martinique and Let The Light From The Lighthouse Shine On Me - but with a sound all of their own, the Old Fashioners will give you a Sunday lunchtime to remember (and the Customs House’s Green Room Bar & Bistro is open until 3.00pm for a delicious post-concert lunch – but you will need to make a reservation on 0191 427 3737). TICKETS £5 THE CUSTOMS HOUSE, MILL DAM SOUTH SHIELDS, NE 33 1ES BOX OFFICE (0191) 454 1234

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
