Herbert ‘Herbie’ Sargent : 8 January 1934 – 9 November 2014

It is with greatest sorrow and deep sadness that we report the news that Herbie Sargent passed away suddenly on Sunday November 9, 2014.  Herbie was a great Jazzer who managed the Tyne Valley Stompers as well as Carol Clegg and Speak Easy whilst also helping out at the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival and many others.  He and his wife were frequently seen all over the UK and abroad at many Jazz festivals from Boston Spa to Sacramento. He leaves behind his beloved family and his dearly loved grandchildren.
Our condolences to Barbara and family - May Herbie Rest In Peace.
Lance and all at Bebop Spoken Here.
Herbie's son Adrian has set up a British Heart Foundation Appeal in memory of his dad.

Herbie sat in the Treasurer's seat at the Whitley Bay International Jazz Festival for a number of years - he cheerfully handed over envelopes containing various currencies to musicians from all over the world! One of the great unsung heroes of the local jazz scene.
