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: Frog and Henry @ the Black Swan - Tonight!

Frog and Henry made a lasting impression earlier this year when the band performed at Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club. The New Orleans based five piece outfit returns to the region tonight (Wednesday Sept. 4) to entertain an expectant crowd of keen listeners and dancers at the Black Swan on Westgate Road in Newcastle. 

An American, two Canadians, a German and Britain’s Ewan Bleach will play a selection of familiar and not so familiar numbers from the early years of the twentieth century. Bleach (reeds) is an energetic showman while his North American band mates adopt a more laid back approach. Canadian Dave Neigh plays, perhaps that should be ‘operates’, his custom built tuba machine using a series of pedals and leg attachments, somehow managing to simultaneously play banjo! 

Tickets from:
