    Hello. For the Blues bar I would like to register an act please. I am a one person group. I play electric guitar and sing. I would welcome other musicians to play along. My three songs are; Cheryl Crow, (or Mamas and the papas) Joe Cocker, and Tina Turner.

    Hey there Richard – sorry for delay mate – been enjoying a lovely Gizzie summer break so only back to web site stuff now. Sure feel free to come along to Feb 3rd Gig or March the 3rd.

    Typically deal is arrive on the night, between 7.30 & 8.00 and get your name up on the board, it pays to be early as sometimes the board will get full up before 8.30.
    For people that we haven’t seen before, we like to them play early in the piece.
    Cheers for that, and we look forward to seeing you!
