James Tarn, the new man on campus here at Matt & Phreds, has compiled a great list of tracks for all you hardened Jazz fans to indulge yourselves with. James is not only going to be taking care of the marketing round here - but he'll be using his knowledge and passion for good music to help secure some of the best bands for our 2012 line-up. Welcome aboard James!
It’s that time of the year when people start to think about what to do and where to go on New Year’s Eve. Look no further. Matt & Phred’s has it covered.
Last night we went down to the opening of Sister Act The Musical at Manchester's Opera House. It was a storming show with brassy costumes and a roof raising musical score. Originally we'd gone along just to support our friend Denise Black (who is playing the sought after role of Mother Superior) but you'd have to be a real cynic not to get caught up in the swing of things.
