Latest Blaydon News

Following this Thursday's (June 11) gig with Janusz Camello - the Polish trumpet player musn't be missed! - and the equally exciting Paul Edis sextet on June 25, Roly has lined up further gigs for July and August.
Thurs 9th July - Ruth Lambert (vcls) and Paul Gamblin (gtr) with The Jeremy McMurray Trio. Adm. £5.00. Top NE jazz singer Ruth teams up with great bebop guitarist Paul Gamblin plus Jeremy's trio to play some fine standards. Paul still works away from the area so this is a rare chance to hear one of our top jazz guitarists. No accolades needed for Ruth, her huge popularity speaks for itself. Also featuring Mick Shoulder bass & Billy Shield dms.
*Thurs 30th July - Roly Veitch Trio with Noel Dennis tpt/flgl and Neil Harland bass. Adm. £4.00.Roly brings his own trio, based loosely on gentle/intimate Chet Baker styled jazz, for a first gig at Blaydon. *This session is in the lounge.
Thurs 20th Aug - Paul Edis/Roly Veitch Quartet. Adm. £5.00. Pianist/composer Paul has in the past 2/3 years emerged as one of the area's finest jazz musicians, with a style reminiscent of the great Bill Evans. For this concert he joins Billy Shield dms, Neil Harland bass and Roly gtr/vcls for a one-off get together.
