Bebop Spoken There

Veronica Swift: "The gigs will be coming back because people need music. Your political system and your economy can fail you but what's the one thing that people always turn to?." - (DownBeat November 2020)

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".
