Jazz Coop G M.

A very well attended General Meeting of the Jazz Coop took place in the upstairs room of The Globe on Saturday afternoon (if only so many could attend the gigs). Minnie Fraser and Dave Parker each gave good presentations on the past present and future of Britain’s first music venue to be owned by a cooperative. A remarkable amount has been done in such a short space of time in establishing the Jazz Coop taking  inspiration from the late Keith Crombie of the Pink Lane Jazz Café. One of things the Coop are most proud of is the amount of money pumped into the jazz community in form of performance and tuition fees. It is also a notable achievement that by installing a lift both floors of the building  are accessible to all, probably a unique feature for any Newcastle music venue. There is more work to be done but I think all present left the meeting in an optimistic frame of mind and looking forward to the future evolution of the project.
Anyone interested in volunteering or indeed becoming a member of the Coop should 
email pinklanejazzcoop@gmail.com for further details.
