NCRO - Tonight at GOTH

Tonight's highlight is the annual concert at Gateshead Old Town Hall by the New Century Ragtime Orchestra with guests Keith Nichols on piano and Nick Ward at the 'traps'.
Vocals by Caroline Irwin help to recreate the hot dance music of the 1930s whilst Steve Andrews comperes and blows some beefy tenor.
Retro it may be but it's so beautifully done few can complain.
Dust off your high button shoes and Turkey Trot along to the Town Hall.
Recommended.
Lance.

How fortunate you are up there Lance, nothing like that here in the York area. I would just love to be going to such an evening's entertainment. I'll say this for the folks of the North East, they know how to enjoy themselves
