The Globe will stay open on Saturday night long after Green Tangerines stop playing to launch a new club night as part of the Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music.
On the Corner will draw on over 70 years worth jazz influenced dance floor music, from across the decades and around the globe. Hosted by DaGu du Jazz and with monthly guest djs and guest musicians and vocalists, the focus will be firmly on shifting feet and delving deep into jazz-infused funk, fusion, hip hop, house and electronica…
DJ Dave Guy (DaGu) has sported many aliases over the years, from Notorious D.A.V.E. to Davey Smalls, DaGu and The Jazz Chin. His first nights in pubs and bars in Salisbury and Winchester in the early 90s, led to his first residencies at Northumbria University where he moved to study.
Gracing the decks in many more bars, Dave was a regular during the early days of the Ouseburn as a creative hub, playing epic parties at the Tyne Bar, Tanners, the Cluny, Ernest, and The Star & Shadow.
Dave’s most critical success came as part of the ‘Traveller Clubnight’ a weekly Saturday night in the early 00s, whose tagline; ‘Global Futronic Jazz & Breaks’ encapsulated the range of eclectic guests and musical styles.
He was resident DJ for the first two Gateshead International Jazz Festivals and over the years has warmed up for, amongst many others; Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge, 4 Hero, Keiren Hebden & Steve Reid, Dave Okumu, Cinematic Orchestra and many more.
Deep dug selections spanning eras and genres, but it is his deep love of the experimentation and exploration of Jazz that weaves through as a constant thread and what will form the core of styles for the ‘On The Corner’ night starting this autumn. With Dave as resident, he will be joined each month by a different DJ, helping to unearth and share new and old gems for contemporary jazz dancers.
Sorry, no one under 18.
