Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Additional Information
Dos Guitars:-
Music lovers are in for a real treat this Easter Weekend as the world class Italian Guitar Duo “DOS” embark on their UK Tour. As part of their performances they will be playing in six venues across Northumberland. Originating from Fossano in Northern Italy, guitarists Luca Allievi and Allessandro Brizio play a mixture of gypsy, hot club, swing and jazz standards as well as their own arrangements of contemporary covers. In their homeland they are seen as the premier guitarists of their generation performing in concert halls and festivals all over Europe. This will be their first time in England and they are looking forward to performing in more intimate settings with their audience. They will be joined by local favourites Angie and Robert Turnbull, who have organised the tour after meeting Luca and Allessandro while performing in Saint Malo, France two years ago.
Elaine Binney:-
Elaine has been classically trained for ten years under the renowned violinist Erardo Evans and received impeccable theory training from Mr Phillip Walton and Mr Michael Dutton. During this time she toured Europe with local orchestras and performed for several prestigious events at such venues as the Purcell Rooms in London and the Sage Gateshead. During this time she performed on Metro Radio and received masterclasses from the world-famous soloist and Northern Sinfonia leader, Bradley Creswick. At 18 years old, she achieved her ABRSM diploma in performance. She has also appeared with the New Century Ragtime Orchestra.
Elaine is now back in Newcastle and working on her own projects including her violin-led jazz band 'Elaine Binney and the Jazz Rascals'
