Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

The Things They Say!

Friday 13th strikes....

(Press release)


We're incredibly sorry to let you know that due to the Coronavirus outbreak Danny Jonokuchi will no longer be joining us at Flat Caps Coffee. We're gutted!


The end of his tour in Israel with Eyal Vilner's brilliant New York big band has been cancelled, and Danny is returning to the USA.

However, the show must go on - - plus we have SOLD OUT!!!

We're still going to feature all of Danny's amazing charts, many of which are vocals featuring the fabulous Alice Grace.

Plus, Pete Tanton, Michael Lamb and Gordon Marshall will be stepping up to take on trumpet solo duties in Danny's place.

We know this will be be a disappointment to some, but hope you'll still join us at Flat Caps next Friday for what is going to be a fabulous night of new arrangements.

The set we've been preparing is virtually unchanged and we have a couple of new surprises up our sleeves to make up for Danny's absence.

If, however, you would like a refund on your ticket - that is no problem at all and we completely understand. Please send an e-mail to support@ticketsource.co.uk with your booking reference and they will organise the return of your payment. If we have not heard from you by Wednesday evening, we'll assume you'd still like to attend.

Kind regards,
Michael & the SSBB
