Preview: Francis Tulip Quartet @ The Globe - December 30

If you haven't, as of yet, made your mind up as to the Gig of the Year you may want to let it run to the wire as tomorrow night (Sunday, Dec. 30) at the Globe - HQ of the Jazz Coop - you may well find a band coming up on the rails to pip the favourites.

The Francis Tulip Quartet, young only in years, have made lasting impressions at their occasional gigs. Gigs that are only occasional because of distance meaning that, when the oracle decrees that their paths will cross, one and all should grab the opportunity and savour the moment for, like a total eclipse of the sun, it doesn't happen every day.
Team Bebop have been fortunate enough to catch most of  their gigs since they emerged, under the auspices of  Paul Edis and Jambone, from the creative womb of Sage Gateshead, paying their dues at the many jam sessions around town before morphing into a band to be reckoned with at any level which is why we are in their corner.

When you've heard them, you will be too!

Francis Tulip (guitar); Ben Lawrence (piano); Michael Dunlop (bass guitar); Matt MacKellar (drums) - remember their names, say 'hello' - in years to come you'll be dining out on it!
Lance.
Sunday, December 30 - Francis Tulip Quartet @ The Globe, 11 Railways St., Newcastle NE4 7AD. 7:30pm. £6 (£3 students).
