Anybody looking for a drummer?

Great Blog. Really good to see how popular jazz is in the North East. My name is Dan, and I am writing to ask if you know of any regular open mic/jam sessions around the Newcastle area? I've been playing the Drums for 4 years now, and was quite disappointed that the Sage seem to have chosen not to have a jam session slot at this years Jazz Festival - I sat in last year and I am trying to find somewhere to play with some new musicians. I'm really keen to put a band together or play in other scenarios really. Contact me: I'm 19 from the Newcastle area. Last year, I played at the Jazz jam session at The Sage with Dave Weisser and received a review in your blog about it. I am the Dan of that afternoon, and thank you also for the review. Dan Reed.
