Lickety Split take it to the bridge

Wednesday 22 August, 8pm

‘Take it to the Bridge’ is the North East’s longest-running jam session, or jazz workshop as veteran organiser Dave Weisser prefers to call it. It takes place every Wednesday in the Jazz Bar at The Globe from 8pm to 11pm.

Every week a core group of musicians turn up and play jazz standards and anyone (amateur or professional) is welcome to join in. Sometimes there are lots of musicians and sometimes just a few. And sometimes something special happens, as we expect it to on Wednesday 22 August when Lickety Split is going to do a guest spot.

This post-bop octet is one of the most swinging bands around and, because of the personnel’s many other commitments, aren’t always able to get together as frequently as their fanbase would like so don’t miss out this time.
