Musicians Unlimited @ Jackson's Wharf, Hartlepool. August 11.

John Nesbitt, one of our many Teesside operatives, sent us this YouTube clip of Musicians Unlimited playing a charity gig at Jackson's Wharf, Hartlepool.
John tells it thus...
Musicians Unlimited didn't fall off the back of a wagon last Thursday (August 11) night at Maestro Mick Donnelly's, fundraiser but their fantastic music just poured out. Delightful to the ear. The event was to raise funds for the RNLI & Support your bowel charities. The massive audience had had a good soaking from the rain, that wasn't forecast, but almost all stayed the distance of about six hours and all went home humming and singing. Tough Hartlepool stock.
The sound system was kindly supplied and installed by Tony and Nolene White. Contact; tonywhiteintheuk@live.co.uk

The trailer in which the band was housed was kindly donated for the occasion by Ian Sykes by Ian Sykes of View Logistics. URL; www.viewlogistics.co.uk.

Jacksons Wharf is at The Highlight, Hartlepool, Cleveland, TS24 0XN 01429 862963 jacksonswharf.hartlepool@marstons.co.uk They serve great food and a good selection of well-kept Wines, Beers, Ciders & Lagers at affordable prices. Right next to The Trincomalee, iron clad sailing battleship. Well worth a visit.
Musicians Unlimited, whose home base is the Park Inn, 82 Park Rd., Hartlepool,TS26 9HU. normally play Sunday lunchtimes there although, at present theory are taking a Summer break. However, all is not lost for this Sunday (August 21) there is a special event. Let Mick Donnelly tell it...

MDA Music Scholarship Fund proudly presents an afternoon of 'JAZZ MUSIC' at The Park Inn, Hartlepool. (12noon - 3pm.)
This event is to help raise funds towards providing scholarships for young musicians in the Hartlepool area. 
It will feature some of the North East finest musicians, Mick Donnelly, James Harrison, Ton Chapman, Mick Shoulder and many guests.
It is a FREE concert, however, donations are very welcome.
