Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Showtime with Soznak @ Northumberland St., Newcastle - Easter Saturday (April 20)

Come rain, come shine, Paul Miskin's multi-national street band of skanksters can be found most Saturdays around Monument or on Northumberland Street belting out their danceable brand of ska, funk and pop. Today Soznak basked in unseasonal, wall-to-wall sunshine as they entertained the shopping hordes. No Jude Murphy today, however, on the plus side, jazz 'bone man David Grey took his place in the skanking frontline. Showtime was seen sporting a natty line in summer shorts - yep, the sun has definitely got its hat on! 

Later today Soznak will be part of a St George's Day party at Scotswood Sports Centre (see today's listings for details).
