Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

McVay and the Swing Time Jivers coming to Sage Gateshead

Three weeks today – Friday 30th December – Ray McVay returns to Sage Gateshead to present his Glenn Miller show. It’s a three o’clock rendezvous in Sage One and it looks like being the biggest gathering yet for this now annual occasion. McVay’s band knows the music inside out, soloists are given the opportunity to shine and the energetic Swing Time Jivers will dance themselves silly, and, no doubt, some jivers in the audience will be tempted to join them!    
Vocalists Colin Anthony (BBC Big Band) and Catherine Sykes (Leeds College of Music) will be joining the band to sing a selection of favourites, so to be sure of your seat, phone Sage Gateshead’s ticket office now: 0191 443 4661. 

Russell.
