Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

RIP Gerry Hughes

Just heard that Gerry Hughes, a long-term bass guitarist with the Tees Hot Club has died. 

Ron Hampton said "Gerry Hughes was a member of the band for over 15 years during which time we performed hundreds of gigs together. He also played with a number of Teesside blues bands and had the reputation of being a solid and reliable bass player. A very popular man with many friends by whom he will be sorely missed. Gerry, as far as we can tell, was in his late 60s. 

The photo at the foot of the picture was taken when the band played at Howard's Restaurant in Stokesley."

Funeral details will be posted when announced.
