Geordie Jazz Man Tour — A Celebration of the Life of Keith Crombie

gjm promo.jpg

This Tyne Idols full package starts off at 12.30pm on Sunday, 26 May 2019 with an insightful tour hosted by one of Keith Crombie's very best pals who also featured in the film The Geordie Jazzman, Mr Bertie Forster.

Bertie has enlisted other lifelong friends of Keith to share the history and anecdotes of the legendary owner of The Jazz Café over the years. Prepare to laugh, gasp and reminisce in style on our vintage double decker bus with the added bonus of the best bus-based sound system available.

The tour will wind its way to The Exchange in North Shields where a Pie ‘n’ Peas Supper awaits at 4.00pm to keep you going until our screening of The Geordie Jazzman commences at 5.30pm. This will be followed by a Q&A with Abi Lewis, director and producer, and featuring guests from the movie.

After the Q&A we will be rounding the day off with Jazz at The Exchange Bar and a chance to catch up with all the folk who made The Jazz Café their spiritual home when Keith was in residence. Needless to say, we positively encourage you to bring nibbles and drinks for sustenance on the bus tour (plastic cups and glasses only please) and of course the bar at The Exchange will be fully functional at all times during our occupation of the premises.

TICKETS FOR THE FULL PACKAGE are now on sale at £35 (including bus tour, supper, film screening with premier table seating, plus Q&A). Tickets are very limited due to the capacity of the double decker bus and early booking is definitely advised on this one. Tickets available from wor Julie at Tyne Idols on 0191 253 1618 or e-mail julie@tyneidols.com

Have a peek at the trailer for this wonderful film here >

For even more info view the website >

“Until his death in 2012, Keith Crombie was the internationally-renowned Geordie Jazz Man — a contrary, mysterious figure who spent decades refusing to bow to musical tides and presiding over one of the city's premiere dives, a home away from home for travelling known musicians and generations of Geordie misfits. A mystery to many of his Jazz Café patrons, whether he was recognised from his exhaustive leafleting of the city's universities or from his tough door policies and unparalleled musical legacy, Keith was an epicentre of creativity in Newcastle. His closest friends and confidantes included local, national and internationally renowned musicians and thespians — with Pink Lane's Jazz Café the pride of the Newcastle Jazz and live music scene.”

This special tour has been timed to coincide with the Spillers Whalf performance of 'The Last Ship' which starts at 5pm. Please note: this tour does not include a ticket to that performance.

Sting spent his formative years on Tyneside, his childhood in the ship building town of Wallsend and then his early days as a musician gigging around the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Our Tyne Idols ‘In The Footsteps of Sting’ Tour will visit locations of special interest to Sting fans: the site of his Dad’s dairy business, the place where he bought his first real guitar. Pubs, clubs, concert halls, churches, shipyards and universities. Sites located between the city and the coast near to the river that played such a big part in his most recent and ambitious work, ‘The Last Ship’.

There will be stops for refreshments and a surprise guest or two with an insight into Sting’s early musical experiments on Tyneside in the 1960s and ‘70s.

As just one of many satisfied passengers from one of our previous Sting Tours put it... "The bus tour had my eyes watering as soon as 'Waters of Tyne' came on as we crossed the Tyne ... and my tears were never far away after that ... feelings so powerful."

The 'In The Footsteps of Sting' Tour leaves from Bewick Street, Newcastle upon Tyne.
