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)

NMBB Marching to Hoochie Coochie

Northern Monkey Brass Band, are bringing the spirit of New Orleans Mardi Gras to Newcastle on 12th February at Hoochie Coochie for some unrestrained merrymaking.
As well as the fantastic originals and covers that audiences have come to love and expect from the 8 piece NMBB, the band will include some New Orleans classic tunes in the set.
It'll be a party atmosphere with throws to the crowd, a second line march (parasols welcome).
Mardi Gras can be described as a no holds barred celebration in the spirit of abandonment, so on the 12th Feb, get to Hoochie Coochie, cut loose, throw down and party 'til you drop. As an added incentive, we’ve got Sue Ferris on sax and Russ Morgan playing a mean, cotton-pickin’ snare drum.
