The o2 Academy Sage All Stars

This coming Wednesday (19 October) Sage Gateshead’s tutors follow in the footsteps of the Fab Four. The year is 1963. The Beatles topped the bill at the Majestic, Newcastle.  The year is 2016. Nick Pride and the Pimptones, Triptych and Coast Road top the bill at the o2 Academy. The Majestic is the o2, the o2 is the Majestic, one and the same. Please, Please, (Me?), get along to the o2 Academy to hear some of the best tutors in the business performing funk, jazz and pop (great vocal harmonies!) to an audience of music students …and you.
Yes, you! Open to all, the o2 Academy triple bill kicks-off at 7:30pm. Admission is £6.00 (plus booking fee) and for your money you get to hear the sharp-suited Pimptones led by soul-jazz man Nick Pride, Triptych (Messrs Paul Edis, Paul Susans and Rob Walker) and Coast Road. Funksters par excellence, the Pimptones tour far and wide, selling shed loads of albums; Triptych (piano, bass and drums) write and perform original material; Coast Road (local reference) play, and sing, and write. Tunesmiths, consummate performers all (Dave Camlin, Brendan Murphy, Paul Susans, Rachel Cross, Bex Mather, Bethany Elen-Coyle), Coast Road, hear them on Westgate Road this coming Wednesday, 19 October.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
