The B's Are Back!

It must be Christmas - the B's are back! Three of them - Barber, Bilk and Ball. of course. This is becoming an annual event in December and, despite their collective longevity - don't ask - they never fail to put on a good show. My personal favourite is Chris Barber, particularly in his bigger band format which invariably includes some early Ellington charts in its' repertoire. But whatever band is your favourite, make sure you have a sturdy pair of shoes on because you will be tapping your feet so much you could wear out the soles!
The Three B's - Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen, The Big Chris Barber Band and Acker Bilk and his Paramount Jazz Band are at The Sage, Gateshead on Tuesday December 11. 7:30pm. Tickets £24:50. Tel.0191 4434640. Plus if you order a meal when you book your ticket you get 10% of the set menu. You think that's a good idea? Well So Do I!
Lance.
