The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Wes says 'Thank you'.


I'm just getting in touch to say a massive thank you to everyone for your involvement in the first 'Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised music'.

All of the feedback that I have received with regards to the festival has been very positive and we had great audiences right across the board for every gig, with three shows selling out we had to turn people away, it was busier than I think any of us could have predicted.
Whilst not all of the funding that was applied for was received, those additional ticket sales meant the losses were certainly manageable.
Artistically the music was absolutely brilliant, and the festival fulfilled it's ambition to bring the established audiences into the concerts, but also to encourage new listeners and create awareness of the different venues and promoters that are currently working in Newcastle no 
matter what the role, it takes the commitment of everyone involved to make something like this successful and the willingness to embrace the idea.
So, once again, many thanks for your support, I hope that this was the first of many.
Wes.
