Well, once again, trying to blow the dust off the old place: three gigs coming up for the Autumn

Sept 27th - Mitch Laddie Trio + George Shovlin & The Raiders
(Booking online with etickets.com or £10 on the door)

October 25th - Virgil & The Accelerators + Midnite Blue Band
(Tickets £10 on the door - PM me and I’ll hold one back for you.)

Dec 13th - Russ Tippins (originally The Animals were to headline, but looking to book alternative.)

mmmm Oct 25th is a bad day, clashing with Chantel (Hartlepool) Blue Swamp (saltburn and Kirk Fletcher (Newcastle) Redcar also have a gig with Gary Grainger support who would normally support Mainsforth! and of course Sedgefield the night before Brothers groove and Blues Boy Dan Owen.

Also clashes with “Blitzallica” at Shildon with Diamond Head (best Brummie riffers since Sabbath) and Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts who I always missed in the 80s…. dagnabbit…...

Just got word in last night; top notch gig announced for Mainsforth, Ferryhill Co. Durham. (5 minutes off A1 if you’re still not sure….)

]March 7th - Sean Webster + Midnite Blue (local band)

Tickets available on the door (£10?)

Sorry for short notice.

Folk going to Sedgefield for Ron Sayer + Half Deaf Clatch - why not make it the double?

Even more reason to do “the double”, Ron on Friday, Sean on Saturday.

I was woking on the “one for the price of two” principal.

Yeah - Midnight Blue opened for VATA last autumn. Good young guitar-slinger they’ll do well to hold on to. Midnite Blue’s that is - Virgil’s repuation is already cemented. Hope they can find a venue up here in the spring.

Looks like they’re adding George Shovlin to the mix.

Word just in from Sean Webster, via Tilerman that Mainsforth Community Centre has closed its doors; presumably for good.

Sean was due to play a show on Sept 12th, but according to his website this has now been cancelled. Also, there were plans for a mini-festival in November with The Della Grants so far confirmed, but obviously this is now in jeopardy.

We’ll let you know as soon as things are confirmed, but sad news for what had the potential as a very good venue.

Update:-  Think closure only temporary due to some refurbishment work going on through September.
