Local live music

Postby Alec » Thu 12 Dec 2013 1:48 pm

Continuing from the thread on the old board, here's a good place to publicise any live music happening locally.

I'll continue to include some of the good stuff from Hertford as it's close enough to be of interest to Ware folk, albeit abroad...

And, to that end, December gigs of note at Hertford Corn Exchange are:

Fri 13 Dec - Absolute Bowie - a welcome return to a great Bowie tribute.

Fri 20 Dec - Neville Staple - am original member of The Specials, expect to hear Specials hits and ska classics from Neville and his band. Support from the excellent Zipheads.

What genre of live music do you want on here?

Here are some for next year in The Drill Hall:

Saturday 15 March: The Rollin' Clones

Saturday 5 April: The Beat

Saturday 26 April: St George's Day Band Night. Band TBA

Friday 9 May: Ultimate Madness. Back by popular demand.

Plus there are concerts coming up for Ware Operatic, HSO, Ware Choral, Ware Brass and others.

Keep an eye on the What's on in Ware section on the Home Page. (Where's the link?)

Er, anything goes, surely! And, while it's good to have big events on the WOL page, a threat that anyone can contribute to is far more likely to cover more.

Excellent - happy memories of them in Hertford a couple of years back - video here - I love the energy these ska bands maintain!
