The Eales Report - Doings down in Darlington & Durham

Bebop Spoken Here’s southern (ish) correspondent Tony Eales reports healthy attendances at recent gigs in Darlington and Durham. Mark Toomey played to an encouragingly large turn out at Opus 4 Jazz Club’s monthly promotion at the Traveller’s Rest, Cockerton, Darlington. In the run-up to the 2017 Darlington Jazz Festival (April 27-30), the Jazztones’ Sunday evening Darlington Jazz Club gig at the Quakerhouse pub similarly drew a good crowd. Meanwhile, the Empty Shop in Durham goes from strength to strength. Last week’s appearance by (pictured) Eddie Bellis’ eight piece Lickety Split proved so popular that the venue’s chill out area was requisitioned to accommodate the overflow from the main room. Jazz lives! (in Darlington and Durham).
