Preview: Snowboy & the Latin Section w. Jen Kearney @ Hoochie Coochie - October 6


54 Pilgrim Street is the place. It's easy to find. East of the sun, west of the moon, south of Northumberland St., north of Gateshead heading into the Toon.
Hoochie Coochie.
Coolest venue in town (sorry, toon) but this Friday (October 6) it will be the hottest!
Snowboy and the ten piece Latin Quarter with, all the way from Boston Mass, vocalist Jen Kearney, are going to give the crowd - and there will be a crowd - a night to remember!
That such a combination are playing Hoochie (maybe Sage Gateshead left it too late) is a feather in Warren's sombrero although, as he's the guy who brought us Gregory Porter, Chaka Khan and innumerable others we shouldn't be surprised. 
A fantastic night in store for those who like their music on the Tequila/Bacardi side!
I'm already crying in my London Pride that I can't be there.
