Not Now Charlie – The Globe, Newcastle
Jamie Toms saxophone / Pawel Jedrzejewski guitar / Richard Campbell piano / Liam Gaughan bass / Dave McKeague drums.
A fast-rising band from Newcastle playing in a variety of styles directly connected to their inspirations, which include straight ahead jazz, prog rock, neo soul, R&B and folk music.
With a set of original music you can expect the perfect mix of jazz harmony with infectious grooves and memorable melodies, all topped off with the excitement of improvisation. Taking their influence from the likes of Christian Scott, Manu Katche, Chris Potter, Roller Trio and Joshua Redman yet still managing to create their own individual sound.
