Christmas at Gosforth Civic Theatre














First the bad news.
There will be no 'last Thursday in the month' SSBB sessions at The Millstone until February 22, 2018.
Now the good news.
There are still some tickets left (not many) for the bands annual Two Nights Christmas Special held on Friday and Saturday, December 15/16, at Gosforth Civic Theatre.
Those who have been at the band's previous Xmas gigs know just what a treat will be in store for them. However, this year, not only will the swingingest band what am, Michael Lamb, be up on stage but, with them, will be the sensational Scarlet Street helping everyone to paint the town red.
Don't hang around - get in before the scalpers -  click here.(quote bebop for discount on tickets).

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
