Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

There's a dance pavilion in the rain...

...yes it seemed like Early Autumn in Heaton Park as the Chilli Road Band unleashed their brand of street funk on a rain sodden audience. This was part of the Heaton Festival and the weather didn't seem to deter the local residents who listened, occasionally danced and partook of the various stalls.
The band were undercover (ish) in front of the pavilion so we remained relatively dry as we swam out to Canteloupe Island for a Moon Dance but, unlike the final number, it was anything but Hot, Hot, Hot.
Still it went well the only sting in the tail being the change from light shower to torrential dowmpour as we packed the gear away. To make matters worse I exited by the wrong gate to where my car was parked which meant an even longer walk in the rain!
So apologies to John Hallam and Roly Veitch but I won't be venturing forth anymore today,
