As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Esquires say "Goodbye Porthole, Hello Maggie Bank

Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, sees the final session by the Esquire Jazzmen at the Porthole down by North Shields ferry landing.
That's the bad news.
The good news is that on January 7 the Esquires start off a new venture at the Magnesia Bank, also in North Shields (1 Camden St.).
The "Maggie Bank" has long been established as a music venue on the North Side of the river although I'm not sure if it has any jazz history being a predominately Rock and Blues orientated bar. It will be interesting to see how it goes.
In it's favour, they have a wider selection of ales on offer although it is a slightly longer walk from the ferry but nearer to North Shields Metro.
