Berklee Bound

Young drummer Matthew MacKellar has been offered a place at Berklee, Boston, Massachusetts, the prestigious American music school. Matt made a big and instant impression when he first turned up at Dave Weisser's weekly workshop at the Chillingham pub in Newcastle. Now as a veteran - all of 18 - on the local scene, Matt is a regular participant at the Jazz Cafe's top class jam session.
Well done Matt, from Bebop Spoken Here!
