Appeal for Africa Jazzathon  -  Sun Aug 21, 2011  |  11:00 am
Although not a Jazz North East promotion, we are extremely happy to give our support to this 12 hour extravaganza, raising funds for the Disaster Emergency Committee's appeal on behalf of famine victims in the Horn of Africa.

The idea for the event came from pianist Paul Edis, with the Newcastle Lit & Phil readily agreeing to provide the venue, and the cream of the North East jazz scene have all rallied round to help out. The Noel Dennis Quartet kicks off proceedings at 11.00am, with another 11 bands following at hourly intervals. Audience members with outstanding stamina might want to stay for the duration, but you can pop in and out throughout the day and be assured that you'll catch some top quality jazz.

The minimum admission price of a fiver is just a suggestion - for those who can afford it, this is a cause and a concert that's worth much, much more.
