Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Today

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.

Who shall I book to play at my wedding ?(Hypothetical question).

This website gives an indication of what bands are charging for gigs - none of these would ever gig at Globe/Caff/Bridge or even Hoochie! Personally I doubt if I'd pay a couple of quid to see any of them although I probably could manage a fiver for The Stones (for old times!) That fiver would probably get me a seat about 5 miles from the stage in a different town!
Still if you're going to book a band for a wedding this is an interesting site. I can't say I recognised any names in the North East/Jazz section.
Check it out here. Do you buy a house or hire One Direction?
