The very first Northeast Fuse live music event took place at Salt Market Social on the banks of the Tyne in August 2021 and saw L Devine and John Waugh performing alongside members of Nobby Solano’s former salsa band The Geordie Latinos; combining great pop songs with Jazz & Latin American rhythms. House band Fuse Nation performed both nights alongside the artists.
The event was a great success and the FREE video stream of the event is now available on line.Filmed over two nights, the stream features live performances as well as interviews with the amazing artists including L Devine, John Waugh and members of the house band Fuse Nation.
Barney Miller, owner and director of Salt Market Social said, “A lot of hard work went in to this project and we were all so excited on the night when everything came together. We’re very happy to work again with Paul James Music and have already started to discuss with them about hosting another high-quality, multicultural music event at The Salt Market in 2022.”
Paul James, organiser of the event and director of Paul James Music, said, “I can’t thank this team enough; we invited the brightest stars in the northeast audio, video and lighting design fields to join us on this production. Along with the artists and venue team, they worked together tirelessly and enthusiastically to support our project and deliver an amazing looking and sounding production. We’re chuffed to bits with it and can’t wait to expand and develop the project next year.”
“Fuse has given the NE creatives involved a voice after a very challenging time for performers. The strength of the talent involved, including NE acclaimed singer/songwriter L Devine, collaborating with progressive Cuban percussionists & Andean folk musicians, has produced a very high quality, innovative, fusion music project which isn’t to be missed.”
