Bebop Spoken There

Lew Shaw (Syncopated Times' columnist): "My interest [at 95] is in classic jazz. The numbers aren't what they were 40 years ago, but I'm encouraged by the number of young musicians playing that style and the young audiences they attract." - (The Syncopated Times January 2021)

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".

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.
