I have no idea where this year is going but it's nearly time for the Gateshead International Jazz Festival again. This year I have the privilege of playing two sets at the festival. On the friday (15th) I will be playing a 10pm set with The Strictly Smokin' Big Band and on the Saturday afternoon with the Northern Monkey Brass Band. We can now announce that this set will be recorded for the new BBC Radio 3 Jazz show. Hope to see some of you there for another great festival!
It is with great pleasure I can inform you that the 'Northern Monkey Brass Band' have been asked to open next years GIJF at The Sage Gateshead. I know it's a way off yet and you're busy thinking about what to buy granny for Christmas but pencil in 18.30 Friday 4th April 2014.
