Preview: This Sunday at Hoochie Coochie.

The occasional jazzy Sunday afternoon slots at Hoochie are rapidly approaching legendary status. Jason Isaacs Big Band,  the Strictly Smokin' Big Band and Gerry Richardson's Big Idea are, themselves, already legends in their own right and the audiences are fully aware of this. Last Sunday, Hoochie was packed out for SSBB - a gig that had the added incentive of featured guest Joe Stilgoe. This coming Sunday, Gerry Richardson's Big Idea return with an even bigger incentive - it's FREE!
Yes, one of the country's most outstanding organ-led big bands is strutting its stuff at Hoochie Coochie on Sunday (October 22) at 5pm and it won't cost you a nickel or a lousy dime to get in.
Groove-master Gerry drives the B3 (or similar) like few others whilst shouting (singing would be an understatement) his own brand of funky, soulful, rockin' blues. Aided and abetted by Fender freak Rod Sinclair, and horn and rhythm sections to die for, it's the only game in town.
Make this your dessert after your roast beef and two Yorkshires.
It's not just a good idea, it's a Big Idea!
Lance.
