Maine Street Jazzmen @ Seaton Sluice Social Club - May 21

This gig took me back to the good old days of live jazz when even national bands would play in social clubs
It reminded me of a night in the 1980’s when I’d gone to Seaton Terrace Club in Seaton Delaval to hear Humphrey Lyttleton’s band with South Shields born Kathy Stobart on reeds. (The crap support act was a guy who was a star from New Faces who did impressions of aircraft taking off by blowing into the mic.) It was at this gig that Humph and Kathy did the two clarinet thing, which I thought was a one off and I’ve never seen it done again.
On Sunday night, Jim McBriarty and Bob Wade did the two Clarinet thing With Creole Love Call, ably supported by Herbie Hudson on harmonica. See attached photo. Smashing arrangement each musician having a fantastic range. This band just gets better and better. A low turnout did not phase them. Two fantastic one hour sets - always with something new. This was my much needed jazz fix and I also enjoyed a pint of the clubs own Seaton Sluice bitter!
