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)

Juggernaut Love Band @ Hoochie Coochie - May 22

Daryl Burns/Kerry Green (vox); Dan Smith (alt); Mark Sykes (ten); Dave Wasp (gtr); Liam Gaughan (bs); Jamie Toms (keys); John Musgrove (kit) + Ruth Davy (vcl).
(Review by Lance).
You can't beat a Sunday afternoon of  music at Hoochie. Today we had disco/funk/soul/country/rock/reggae/hip hop/rap/ska/ a whiff of jazz and, probably the only thing missing from this set, was a Gregorian chant although one of those may have turned up in the second set (I left at intermission time having been taken suddenly drunk!)
It was a fun afternoon by a band that knows their audience and hits them with it full on.
Yippee-I-Ay was like cowboys riding the range on Harley Davidsons. They're energetic, Gaughan and Burns pogoing as they play and sing. Kerry Green is an amazing soul singer - she  has to be. After her predecessor, Ruth Davy (she'd left to get married and have babies and things), took to the stage and blew the room away, Kerry gave her a hug and proceeded to do her own demolition act.
Jamie Toms was on keyboards tonight. I wondered - tenor man on keys... the wondering stopped when he pressed the B3 button!
Burns, who it would appear is triple-jointed, rubber-limbed and a mover and a groover, took to the dance floor and invited ladies to dance - they declined. He returned to the stage joining Kerry to belt out Psychedelicfunkindiscodancer or something that sounded like that! 
The two saxes soloed and traded fours, Wasp played some stinging guitar lines. This was far removed from  my normal comfort zone but hey - it was great!
