Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's South Shields.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/harm/vcl), Derek Fleck (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Ian Forbes (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl). May 21, Rosie Malone's, South Shields.
A stomping good afternoon by the Maine Street Jazzmen (and jazzwoman) twixt the shamrock covered walls of Rosie Malone's. Hardly a jazz audience but, nevertheless, they seemed to like what the gang were doing to tunes such as "Avalon", "Hello Dolly", "Sunny Side of the Street", "Some of These Days" and "Back in Your Own Backyard."
Good solos all round with some fine chanting from Olive who delivers with plenty of zest and personality.
If you like Guinness, real ale, good food and banjoless dixieland bands this is the place to be - every Thursday afternoon from 2:00 pm. Photos.
Lance.
