Friday Rocks!

See here every week for the latest news from the home of the Herd at the Rock of the North, with lights & smoke & Rock'n'Roll.

The Rock Club convenes in Houghton Comrades Club, the full address is: Houghton Comrades, Pear Tree Place Houghton le Spring DH4 4AT. The clubs phone number is 0191 584 1123, the Rock Club can be contacted via the usual email address here.

It was business as usual down at the Comrades on 17th October as Bon Jovi Forever brought their superb tribute show to the Rock Club. Always a great show, another good crowd were not disappointed as the band ran through an obviously well rehearsed set slipping seamlessly from one song to the next with only the shortest of breaks to have a bit banter with the assembled fans. Lots of dancers up, quite a few new faces in the club, up to 3 lasses on the bar, I'd like to think everyone went home happy. One of the best performances we get here, and one you're not going to see at any other venue in the local area - if you want to see the best Bon Jovi Tribute in the UK in the Houghton area, you're going to have to watch the up and coming gig list at the Buffalos. No-one else comes close.

Next Show:

Friday 24th October
Insanity always put on an excellent show, but play here too rarely, doing tracks from the heavier side with stuff from Ozzy, Sabbath, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Whitesnake
but with the odd curve ball thrown in from Bowie, Ocean Colour Scene, Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, Duran Duran and Wild Cherry. here's gotta be something in there you like! Their only gig here in 2014, your only chance to see them locally in 2014 - don't miss it.
£2.50 Entry
