Re: Downbeat and other Clubs in Newcastle
The New Orleans Club catered for Jazz enthusiasts and it was in Melbourne street just off City Road (1960's). I remember it just as Mac described. The resident band was made up of students from Kings led by Mike Carr. His brother Ian was paid odd visits to the club and became a respected musician and columnist in the London jazz world.
Sylvia: When the old club was knocked down they moved to Forth Banks behind the Central Station.
