If you happen to be out and about today in Consett, you may have had the pleasure of seeing a spectacle which had to be seen to be believed. In Middle Street today the German band Beat n Blow have been parading up and down the street giving us a selection of their music. On a day punctuated with drizzle, the German outfit have given Consett a little something to smile about with their fusion of Jazz, Big band, Hip hop and other world styles. As I write this post right now, they are standing about 100 metres away and their urban brass sounds are flowing through the window brightening up the afternoon.
They are currently on a UK tour and have recently played in Lanchester and tomorrow night are playing the Consett Empire in what will no doubt be a great night of music.
