Multiple Choices Today

If you fancy some bracing sea air then the King's Arms at Seaton Sluice could be just the place for you.
Anth Purdy - a name I must confess that is new to me - is playing solo guitar. The poster in the right hand column promises Swing Jazz Guitar and quotes Charlie Christian and Les Paul to define his style. Sounds good to me.
Inland Newcastle's Jazz Café Jam Session offers musicians the chance to jam although starting times are becoming more and more erratic.
Jazz Café favourites Lindsay Hannon Plus  move down the road 'apiece to the Bridge Hotel where they are tonight's Splinter @ The Bridge attraction - 8:00pm £5.
Funk and Soul and Rock 'n Roll at Hoochie Coochie tonight with the Renegade Brass Band. Start probably about 8:30/9:00pm with doors opening at 7:00pm. It's free..

Hi Lance, I went to school with an Anthony Purdy who lived in Seaton Sluice and was in a band - I wonder it's the same person? Course that was in the days of yore!!! x
