First off, apologies
to Big Ted who I hear did an excellent job last Friday night when
this reviewer and the Punter were otherwise engaged in helping the
Great White Buffalo get set up for his wedding on the day after.
So no review and no photos :-(
However, we WERE down at the club earlier in the week and came away
with the great news that the club had signed a new contract with
the brewery and the beer prices were coming DOWN. 20p off the lagers
and cider, more reductions on some of the draught beers. Permanently.
Also, the from now on, there will be a cap on the cover charge so
the MAXIMUM door charge will be £3.00. We really appreciate the
club's committment to our Rock nights and their continued support
for what is regarded among the bands who play here as one of the
best venues anywhere in the North East.
The Mudsharks first played for us a couple of years
ago on the recommendation of a couple of the Herd who'd seen them
elsewhere. Seldom playing this far south of the river, they were
an immediate hit with the Herd who loved their heavier side of Rock
material and their total commitment to their craft. Expect to hear
sogs from Ozzy, Sabbath, UFO, MSG, Guns & Roses, AC/DC and Buckcherry.
See them in action playing to us in May 2012 here
covering Y&T's 'Rescue Me'.
