Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Why Musicians Don't go to Other Musician's Gigs

Discussing the often asked question as to why musicians rarely go to other musician's gigs the best answer we came up with was that they don't want to let the guys playing the gig know that they don't have a gig that night!

Or on a rare night off the last thing they want to do is go out to a gig. Certainly that's my personal experience.

I do occasionally get to gigs (I have you as a witness to that Lance!) but because work takes me out so often in the evenings, nights off are more likely to be spent (like tonight) watching Dr Who with the kids!
