We wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year.
At this time of year after the festive celebrations people remark there is a big lull in January .
So taking this on board we have come up with a great music weekend at the end of January which everyone can look forward to.
So hence, the inaugural BEAT THE JANUARY BLUES WEEKEND.
We have two great and diverse shows for you to savour.
From the USA... KIRK FLETCHER BAND
Saturday 25th January
Liam Alexander Ward and Malcolm Thorne Doors 7.45pm
We have been trying to get this guy for a long time and now we have finally nailed it.
The former Fabulous Thunderbirds guitarist is embarking on a solo club tour culminating in an appearance at the London Blues Festival. Luckily Devizes is on a select number of dates.
Joe Bonamassa rates Kirk as one of the finest guitarists in the world, praise indeed. This was exemplified when he was invited on stage to one of Joe's shows at the Royal Albert Hall last year.
Soulful vocals and guitar giving echoes of BB King in his prime. A band which delivers a great Hammond organ sound, this is simply a gig you cannot miss.
Ticket interest for this gig already has been very strong.
On sale now. £16 in advance (£18 on the door).
BILLY BREMNER'S ROCKFILES
Sunday 26th January
Acoustic Support from Thompson Smurthwaite Doors 7.45pm
Fronted by the founding member of Dave Edmunds Rockpile the evening will be devoted to the music of this classic band.
Billy Bremner has been around the block starting off in Lulu's backing band the Luvers before ending up with Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe to form Rockpile which produced some great albums and super singles.
Billy then went onto a stint with The Pretenders and some great session work.
Now based in Sweden, he rarely comes over to the UK so we are very proud to be included on this short UK tour.
This is a super way to end off a great weekend.
On sale now. £17 in advance (£19 on the door).
You can buy individual advance tickets for these shows at £16.00 (Kirk Fletcher) and £17.00 (Billy Bremner) from our usual outlets or online, see our website for details.
We also have a Special Offer Weekend pass £30 for both gigs.
