The Old Town Hall has been magnificently restored as a performance venue, with café and licensed bar.
There is ample free car parking next to the building, which is also only a couple of minutes walk from Gateshead Metro Interchange.
As ever, we will be featuring our guests Keith Nichols on piano and Nick Ward on vintage percussion, along with Frontman Steve Andrews on reeds, Caroline Irwin on vocals and cornet and Keith Stephen on banjo and guitar.
Tickets are available from Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011 or ragtimedavekerr@aol.com or the box office on 0191 433 6965, see poster in sidebar for more information.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
