A Night To Remember...

You can never tell how a Saturday night at the Jazz Café is going to go. It started with some Asian students filming us (Debra Milne Ensemble) for a website about Newcastle’s coffee shops “Of which the Jazz Café is very special”. Unfortunately they left before the best bits. However, two other customers enjoyed themselves so much, they wrote us a note and left it with Kerry at the bar. At the end Keith decided on a tribute to the musicians of The Titanic, and set up his projector to show the latter part of the movie. Whilst we abandoned ship, a group made themselves comfortable with their wine in the corner, we cleared the decks, but the musicians played on as the ship went down…..
