Rendezvous Jazz Goin’ Home to the Sandpiper

Maureen Hall’s Rendezvous Jazz will be returning to the Sandpiper (formerly the Piper) in Cullercoats to resume their regular first Saturday in the month residency. The band’s monthly gig in Preston Grange has come to an end, so, from Saturday December 7 Maureen and the boys will be back at the Sandpiper (first Saturday in the month, January 4 already confirmed) at the usual time – 8:30 pm – with admission on the door at a bargain £3.00. 
The December date just happens to be the band’s Christmas party night. Delights are sure to be plentiful – silly hats, streamers, raffle prizes galore and the promise/threat of Iain McAulay playing the bagpipes! The Sandpiper, on Farringdon Road, has been substantially redesigned, real ales are on tap and it is but five minutes walk from Cullercoats Metro station. And if you can’t wait that long to hear them, catch the band at St Joseph’s CMS Club in Birtley on Thursday December 5 (8:15 pm). All this in addition to your weekly rendezvous with Maureen at the Black Horse in Monkseaton (Friday 1:00 pm). The party season starts here!
