Ashington Jazz Club - new venue to be revealed...

Just like the Jazz Café in Newcastle,  in December, we are moving to a new venue, a new day and new times.
Details of the new venue/dates/times etc. will be given out at the last gig at the Elephant next Wednesday (November 7).
Gordon Solomon (who ran our original band the River City Jazzmen) is back playing again. He will be a special guest with our resident band  Classic Swing next Wednesday, ending a relationship Ashington Jazz Club has had with the Elephant that goes back 33 years
All of those musicians who have played/sung at the Elephant over the years are welcome to come along for a jam session in the second set. Meet up with all your old friends and help us go out with a Bang!
JT.
