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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Preview: Friday's a Wonderful Night for a Moondance

Kathryn Frances Atack (piano/MD); Tony Chapman (vocals); Dave Beston (guitar); Nick Polito (drums); Steve Fardoe (sax/clarinet); Allan Peat (double bass).
(Info supplied by Allan Peat).

Moondance, named after the Van Morrison classic, is a six-piece swing band featuring the players listed above. Their repertoire includes such popular standards as The Lady is a Tramp, Fly me to the Moon, All of Me, Strangers in the Night, Autumn Leaves, Summertime, Mack the Knife, My Way, King of The Swingers etc.

Formed over the summer and playing quarterly at The Little Theatre in Cleadon near Sunderland, they are looking for other gigs in 2019. Some members of the ensemble also perform and direct plays at the theatre whose availability makes for a great rehearsal place for them, as well as being a nice venue to put on a show that’s 100% Moondance.

The theatre seats about 60/70 in a cabaret setting. The band's two shows this weekend will include the above numbers as well as some of the seasonal classics. Saturday night is sold out but there are still tickets for Friday‘s performance.
