Another one bites the dust.


It's becoming a daily occurrence, a seemingly popular pub closing. The latest one, from our point of view, is the Potter's Wheel in Sunniside. The 'Potters' began life in the 1960s as The Blue Parrot, one of the first nightclubs in the northeast. In more recent years it was home to the Maine Street Jazzmen who played a weekly Thursday night session - until last night that is. Now the pub is closed and the band are looking for another home.
Thanks to trumpet player Ray Harley, pictured here with bandleader Herbie Hudson, for updating me with the sad news.
