Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Maine Street Jazzmen Rule in Rochdale.

Maine Street Jazzmen played their first gig at Rochdale Jazz Club back in July this year, which was very well received.
The club operates on a Sunday Night and features visiting and local bands.
Every year the members/committee have an opportunity to vote for who they think is the best band to have played at the club, in the previous year.
The band learnt last week that they have chosen Maine Street Jazzmen as their new "Band of the Year".
Consequently MSJ have been booked for a return gig to Rochdale Jazz Club in January 2013 to receive their "Band of The Year" trophy.
Attached are some photo's taken by local photographer and jazz club member Valerie Bracken at the July gig. She sends a selection of her photos to the local newspaper as well as Jazz North West's website.
The drummer in the pictures is Rod Macnamara, a Leeds based Drummer, who helped out on the night.  Also featured in the photos are jazz club members Pat & Dave, celebrating the arrival of a grandchild, having a dance to the band.
 MSJ have two more "away" gig's in the near future, Boston Spa Jazz club near Wetherby on Sat 1st Dec, and also Edinburgh Jazz Club on Friday 7th December.
