Alice Grace, Jennifer Davies & Ben Helm @ Stack, Newcastle - Feb 9

Alice Grace (vocals); Jennifer Davies (vocals); Ben Helm (guitar)

Stack is a short term - three year - project before the developers move in. Located on the site of the now demolished Odeon Cinema, a plethora of bars and eateries continue to do a roaring trade post-Christmas/New Year. 

Entertainment is part of the offer and three well-known faces from the regional jazz scene played a return engagement entertaining a Saturday afternoon partying crowd. The absence of anything resembling jazz didn't matter a bean, this was popular entertainment, pure and simple. Our entertainers were none other than super singers Alice Grace and Jennifer Davies accompanied on acoustic guitar by Ben Helm. Tunes ranged far and wide including Ain't No Mountain High Enough, Somethin' Stupid and I Want to Hold Your Hand


From Stack, it was a short walk to the new place to be seen in the Cloth Market to catch Jason Holcomb's Society Trio. Read BSH Editor in Chief's thoughts on Newcastle's Cuban hideaway.
