First Gig of a new residency for the Maine Street Jazzmen.

The most popular band at the Elephant is back.
On Wednesday, 2nd March, the Maine Street Jazzmen become the resident band for the Elephant's monthly sessions.
Ashington Jazz Club is now in its 26th year. The resident band in the early days of the club was the River City Jazzmen. The River City band made their final appearance at the Elephant in July 1999. Unfortunately they are now disbanded.
Members of the Maine Street band include former River City men Herbie Hudson (Leader/tromb./harmonica/vocals), Ray Harley (tpt), Malcolm Armstrong (piano), and latterly Jim McBriaty (reeds).
In trying to recreate the halcyon days of the club James Birkett (gtr) has been booked to play. He guests with the band for the second gig of their residency on Wednesday 6th April. One of James’s first appearances on the North East jazz scene was in November 1989 when he sat in with the River City Jazzmen at the Elephant.
