Pink Lane Jazz Co-op Update on Globe Project

I expect you will have heard about our project to buy The Globe and create a co-operative live music venue and jazz education hub.
We are holding an event for potential investors to find out more about this exciting venture on Monday 3 March at the Lit & Phil, 23 Westgate Road NE1 1SE starting at 6pm – there will be a buffet and bubbly as well as talk and jazz.  Whether you have invested or not please come along and bring some friends.  (It would be helpful if you let me know if you’re coming so we can get some idea of how many to cater for.)

To those of you who have already bought shares – thank you for supporting us.
To those of you who have not yet invested – please do so now.  There is no advantage in waiting because if you buy shares online the money does not get debited from your bank account until after the share issue is closed.  www.microgenius.org.uk/project/pink-lane-jazz-co-op-at-the-globe-17
You may also pay in instalments if you would prefer – please email me for details.
If you have invested already maybe you could persuade someone you know to invest as well.  There’s lots of good reasons to buy shares but two that have persuaded me are
1  This will be very significant for the future of jazz in Tyneside – providing a venue where musicians can learn, share and develop their skills.
2  We are asking for investments not donations.  It’s a good business opportunity that should earn a reasonable rate of interest.
I look forward to seeing you on 3 March.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
