nu York State

Last night I took a trip out to York with Heather to see nu York State live at the Basement Bar in City Screen cinema. It was supposed to be an outing for jazz and blues society members in Leeds to meet the society in York, but it turned out the thought of travelling to York put a lot of people off.

It was a great night though, I caught up with a load of old friends from York and got to meet the new society members there for this year – its really come on in leaps and bounds since when we first started it all back in 2004. I also got a chance to have a chat with Danny Gough (lead singer and trumpeter for the band) about his soon to be released new album and how things have been going for him and the band. They’ve played a fair few gigs around the country and they seem to be progressing nicely in the music world.

The actual gig was great, good fun to dance to and enjoyed by all who attended. Although not normally into jazz funk, Heather also enjoyed it a lot. The only downside to it all was leaving the venue at about midnight knowing we had a 1 hour 30 minute trip back to Leeds ahead of us. Still, anything in the name of a good bit of jazz 🙂
