Pete Gilligan's Jam Session @ Hoochie Coochie. Thursday Sept. 6.

Pete Gilligan (pno); Steve Glendinning (gtr); Paul Susans(bs); ? (dms). + Lindsay Hannon (vcl); Gabriele Heller (vcl); Steve ? (ten).

I had hoped to go to Blaydon last night with my mate Alan. Unfortunately Alan's prestigious gig at Bothal Castle with Ellington Colliery Band overran. He very kindly gave me a lift to Hoochie later in the night - just in time to hear the end of the first set from the quartet. The second set saw saxophonist Steve (a newcomer to me) join the band. A very polished performance. Several nice numbers from Gabriele followed by Lindsay to end the night, the band playing on until 11 oclock. I had to run up Northumberland Street and just managed to catch the 23:05 last bus to Ashington 
Plenty of variety of styles and overall a highly entertaining night. If this is a regular jam session please give us more Warren! 
A lovely lady with a top notch camera took lots of pics. I gave her Lance's email address - hope we can see her work some time.
Numbers were down at Hoochie last night, I know that some folks would be at Blaydon but numbers seem to be down everywhere at the moment - we only had 30 at Ashington on Wednesday.
