hi lance

ive been 3 times since it started 5weeks ago.

the jazz cafe jam is led by the irrepressible pete gilligan on keys with paul granger on double bass, young omid has bought kit along most weeks, mark williams has been strutting his high energy stuff using the infamous jazz cafe house guitar amp,sarah travener is on tenor, and lindsay hannon displays her eclectic vocal talents.

this lineup has been joined at times by an impressive horn section including stewart and fiona from budvivar, and chris finch and i have both stepped away from the piano to play tenor and trumpet respectively.
many other guest guitarists, pianists singers, a harmonica players rappers and drummers(including david carnegie last sunday) have got on the bandstand and contributed to what seems to me to be one of the coolest things happening on a sunday afternoon in newcastle.
it starts at around two thirty,
and ends when it ends (between half nine and twelve when ive been)

bring your instruments, bring your pals

Glad to be there!
