Star Struck Off!

The Wednesday night sessions at the Star Inn on Westgate Rd., Newcastle are no more. Dwindling audiences and low bar takings means the venture is no longer financially viable. Once again jazz fans have been hoisted by their own petard.
This leaves the Chilli on Chillingham Rd., as the only Wednesday evening session although the View Carré Jazzmen at the Crescent Club, Cullercoats and the Jazz Esquires at the Black Horse, Monkseaton, continue to keep afloat on Wednesday lunchtimes.
On a brighter note, come September the sessions at Ernest, down Ouseburn way, are set to re-start on Thursday evenings.
