Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Great North Big Band Jazz Festival News

More big band happenings with the sixth edition of the above event. This year it takes place on Saturday 7th March & Sunday 8th March at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St.Peter's Sunderland.
Once again, the two featured bands are the BBC Big Band on the Saturday night and the Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra on the Sunday night. Trumpet player Steve Waterman is the featured soloist with the VOTNJO.
Last years event at the Stadium of Light was a hit with the fans even though the beer prices weren't. One chap said to me - "For what they're charging Sunderland should be able to buy Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney!"
Hopefully beer at the campus is cheaper!
There is also, on Saturday afternoon, a School Big Band competition and on Sunday afternoon a Youth and Open contest.
For more details contact Bill Watson on 01388 767208

Hi Lance

I can confirm that the beer at Campus is cheaper.A pint of Boddington's is about the best one can hope for.Chips,curries and other healthy student options are available.
