Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

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.
