Polite Advice - Other Stuff - T's & C's

The club welcomes both experienced performers and those new to performing in public.

The club is a music club and to that end we ask people to be considerate to the players when they are on stage,

however, there is a bar and it’s not a library; common sense should apply.

If you want to chat rather than listen, please move to the upper bar.

Musicians/Performers should note the following...

  • Electric solid bodied bass guitars are permitted (we have one available or bring your own).

  • Electric solid bodied lead / rhythm guitars are discouraged, we encourage the use of acoustic guitars with or without a plug-in facility.

  • In order to provide as many slots to artists as possible and to finish as close to 11:00pm as possible,
    we ask that you are tuned up and ready to go when you go on stage, apart from minor tweaking of course.

  • We are unable to schedule performers who use backing tracks. It is a live music club.
