The Dolphin and Snooty Fox only have cover bands.

Ace Space haven't replied to my email - although judging by previous comments this probably won't be a goer.

As I said, we are looking into the football club.

OK - The Monument is an option but it's not a great venue, is it.



Only covers bands is a rubbish policy!

You could try the Canal Bar. Relik & Secret Fridge Party filled it last Saturday also LSB and KC have bands on occassionally.

Good luck!

The Canal Bar may be worth an ask. Not sure the LSB would be suitable for 'rock' bands.

Ace Space have also now replied. As thought, noise seems to be their main issue, but they have invited me to their next committee meeting so we shall see.

It is worth talking to LSB as the guy who puts bands on there also does a bit of local promotion, his name is Iain and he likes his RAWK wink.gif

I don't think that there's anything wrong with covers bands per se. God knows that I love a bit of Lynyrd and Black Crowes on a Friday night (as Bill will be able to vouch for!)

BUT it should not be the overriding policy when booking bands locally.

I think that each venue / promoter tends to look more at what type and size of crowd the band will bring in. Convince them that you have an alcohol-purchasing (legally!) and sizeable crowd following you and you should be fine........

Should this be in the thread about the old MFI unit? wink.gif
