Bottleneck Blues Club

Dear All

Many thanks to those (circa 100 of you) who were booked in to see Kyla Brox, however, the English weather intervened and the show had to be cancelled, which was a first since the inception of the club, as far as I am aware.

For this month, on Tuesday 27th March, no introduction required for Geoff Achison and his UK Souldiggers, consistently a sell-out artist at the club and deservedly so. All the way from Australia, an internationally acclaimed artist who will transport you into places of delight with his mix of soul, funk and blues, backed by UK musicians of the ultimate pedigree. Absolute quality for the final show at the Roffen.

Tickets £15.00, pay on the door. Doors open 7.30pm, band on stage 8.45pm. Good food, reasonably priced, available to eat at your table if required.

So, that's Geoff Achison and the UK Souldiggers, appearing on Tuesday 27th March. Early booking advised!

As an additional note, we have sourced a new venue close to the Roffen, being the George Hotel, which has all of the required facilities in order to carry on in style. The first show is scheduled as the May show, with Steve (Wes) Weston, however, the April show may still take place and please watch this space for any updates

I also need to thank Alan and Carol, who are stepping down from running the night after the March show and who join a contingent of devoted members contributing to keep the club running against all odds, when it was officially pronounced dead over ten years ago. Alan and Carol have done an amazing job, I'm sure that you will agree. This is, without question, one of the UK's premier blues clubs helping to keep the genre alive long-term and entirely due to unwavering support shown by people who love quality live music. The club is equally revered by the artists that perform here.

I am currently looking for new people to get involved in the running of the club, if any of you are interested.

Please do support.
