Flashmob to play Jazz Café

Flashmob - paradoxically a quartet - are to appear at Newcastle's Jazz Café on Wednesday Nov. 9.
This is part of a Jazz Services sponsored tour and the Newcastle gig came up after a date elsewhere fell through.
The band comprises Ryan Williams (guitar); Rory Simmons (trumpet); Will Collier (bass) and Nick Smalley (drums).
Williams, in the forefront of the picture is a Guildhall graduate, and he described the bands music to me as 'straight ahead jazz with some rock and contemporary elements also in the mix.'
Listen to Chetniks. Chetniks, I'm led to understand were a Serbian paramilitary movement however, listening to Simmons' lyrical trumpet leads me to believe another Chet may have been a bigger influence!
As of yet times and door price have yet to be announced - watch this space.
Lance.
