Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

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".

Let us know whether the weather has affected your gig.

Well, the Beast From the East is here leaving a trail of cancelled gigs behind it. Yesterday we lost the Classic Swing session at the Ship in Monkseaton (thank you Alan Rudd for the update) and the Hexham Jazz Club gig at The Fox (thank you Hazel).
I see, from Facebook that tonight's Take it to the Bridge at The Globe has also fallen foul of the weather.
It would be appreciated if bands, organisers or fans who know of any cancelled gigs keep us informed. The last thing any of us want is folk trudging through the snow only to find an empty stage.
So please update me - lanceliddle@gmail.com.

Hello, everyone!
I'm probably stating the obvious, but today's session at the Crescent Club is cancelled.
Even at the coast pavements are hazardous with snow & ice.

Have a happy 'snowed-in' day!

On the off-chance that anyone was considering braving the weather tomorrow night, just a note that the Steve Andrews Quartet gig at Carlisle Jazz Club on Thursday March 1st, is cancelled due to arctic conditions! Personally, I blame it on the EU..............

Reluctantly we have decided to cancel the gig by Alan Glen Scheduled at The Globe tomorrow night due to the forecast of snow and ice. We will find another date for the Alan Glen Trio as soon as possible.
