Saville Exchange Gig Cancelled.

With great regret we have to inform you that Friday's concert with Six in a Bar has been cancelled due to the bad weather - three of the band (who come from Lancashire and West Yorkshire) are currently "snowed in" in the villages where they live, and on top of that one more has come down with the dreaded 'flu. With no prospects of an early thaw, and not wishing to present us with a band full of "deps", both the band and I thought cancellation the best thing. We'll try to re-schedule this concert at a later date: in the meantime, please stay tuned for an announcement from North Tyneside Council regarding arrangements for those of you who have pre-paid for tomorrow night. This is our first-ever cancellation in over seven years of presenting Jazz @ The Exchange, by the way.
Here's to John Hallam and the Roly Veitch Quartet on February 5th...... snow should be gone by then!
Mike Durham.

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.
