Brassy B Brave Baltically Brass Conditions @ Monument. December 27

Having just read Chris Barber’s autobiography with its references to good times in New Orleans and meeting heroes such as Barbarin, Purnell, the Humphrys and others, it was a treat to wander into town to find Brassy B at Monument blasting out N’Awlins-inspired street jazz. One of Newcastle’s better street bands, the Doc Marten, mitten-clad twenteens play it with gusto. Trombone, two trumpets, baritone, two (female) altos, flute, drums and a shuffling, dancing (advancing and retreating) tuba entertained the frost –frozen bargain hunters. Cracking stuff, catch them in town sometime. Why not book them for your 2015 summer BBQ?
