Tonight at the Hoochie Coochie

 Tonight (August 25) the Hoochie Coochie - 54 Pilgrim St., Newcastle, NE1 6SF - is the place to be if you like hard swinging modern jazz with more than a hint of bebop about it.
The STEVE FISHWICK QUARTET - Steve Fishwick (trumpet); Ross Stanley (keyboards); Tim Thornton (bass); Matt Fishwick (drums) - favour the hard bop style associated with the Blue Note label and such players as Lee Morgan, Freddy Hubbard, Kenny Dorham etc. With brother Matt driving things along and Ross Stanley (presumably on piano - hence the presence of bassist Tim Thornton) this promises to be an unmissable occasion.
Doors open 7:00pm with music 8:00pm. £14.00. Note that although advertised as free after 10.30pm the live music will presumably have finished by then! The Hoochie Coochie, which opened its doors to the public last weekend is probably the most luxurious jazz venue the city has known and, despite the opulance, the drink prices are reasonable.
Good music, good ale and comfortable surrounds - what more can we ask? Further information.
Steve Fishwick Soundbite.
