As everyone is aware the live music industry is taking an enforced break for the foreseeable future.
We had three more gigs to end our season which we have had to postpone.
We have managed to rearrange the Mike Zito and Antonio Forcione gigs and are hoping to rearrange Mark Flanagan band soon.
All we are asking people to do if they have already booked tickets for any of these shows is to retain them and use them for the new dates. That will be the best way you can help the artists, agents and promoters who are unlikely to perform for the foreseeable future.
We have a great series of gigs already booked for later in the year so together with the rearranged shows you are in for such a treat!
We are going into hibernation until September and we are hoping then it is all systems go.
First European tour for this amazing show. For all you Crosby Stills and Nash fans!

Rightly lauded as one of the best contemporary blues artists in the USA Mike Zito makes his third visit to the club. Being a member of one of most iconic bands in the last decade Royal Southern Brotherhood his live shows are what puts him apart from many other artists.
"If you don’t believe what you’re singing, you’ll never be a good singer. I try not to write fluff; I try to make every word count."Mike Zito
He goes back to his roots for his latest release a tribute to Chuck Berry. Taking over a year to put together he got the likes of Joe Bonamassa Walter Trout Robben Ford amongst many others to put their own identity on this project which has received rave reviews.
Showcasing this and all his back catalogue, this will be one special show.
Tickets, as expected, are selling very well for this gig.
