Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

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.
