Tomorrow night it's Blaydon or Hoochie.

Tomorrow night at Blaydon sees the start of the Christmas Party season. Atrocious weather conditions meant that last years party had to be postponed until April by which time Santa's beard was considerably longer and greyer. Roly's taking no chances of a similar scenario this year hence the re-writing of the calendar to November 24 besides what's a month between friends!
Frank Brooker and the James Birkett Quartet provide the music which will make the journey westwards a worthwhile trip. Regulars will no doubt recall the previous gig by these five players earlier this year and look forward to a good night. Stomp off is at the slightly earlier time of 8:15 pm and admission is £6 including buffet.
Blaydon CIU Club, Garden St., Blaydon.

Meanwhile, back at Hoochie Coochie, the increasingly in demand singer Claire Kelly and her Quartet are making their debut at what is rapidly becoming the hottest spot in town. If you haven't heard her yet now's the time to catch up. With Mark Williams (gtr), Andy Champion (bs) and Adrian Tilbrook (dms) giving support you can guarantee that it will mean a thing...
8:00pm. Free.
Lance.
