Genre

Classic Rock

Description

We're a 70s classic rock covers band (with a bit of late sixties thrown in for a good measure). We believe in the rock, but have tired of the indie pretenders to the rock throne. We don't have long hair, but we have the ability to drink beer, hit drums hard, play solos that contain two and a half tone bends and sing Since You Been Gone in its original key.

If any or all of this speaks to you then come and see us. Simple as that.

To say that music died in the 80s isn't entirely true, but we aren't just any old covers band. Bon Jovi and Guns n Roses have their place – it's just not in our set. In fact you won't find anything released after Dec 31st 1979 – we had to have a rule, and that was it (that, and don't piss the bassist off).

In reality the most glorious time for music was late 60s, early 70s. That was the period that started us off down this path, when the tectonic plates of planet rock started to shift: Hendrix, Zeppelin, Faces, Free, early Fleetwod Mac, that kind of earthy bluesy rock, when jeans were still tight and flower power wasn't yet something to be ashamed of.

But talk of 70s rock opened up a whole world of overblown possibilities that just could not be ignored: Quo, Rainbow, Queen, Floyd, ELO. Yes, these were the guys whose hyperbole eventually led to punk destroying rock for a decade - but the benefit of hindsight allows us to see past their shame and bask in the unbridled joy of classic rock, maybe even hair rock, and just a for a minute, a bit of cock rock.

Because let's face it, when you've a pint in your hand and blood in your veins the last thing you want to hear is another feckless indie four-piece strumming out the same derivative pap. You want to rock! And rock the way the gods of yore once did. Valhalla, I am coming (and yes, we do do that one, before you ask).

Blues Cafe Bar

Venue Type

Live Music Bar

Description

Overlooking Montpellier Gardens, one of the town centre’s most picturesque locations, the vividly painted Blues Bar packs an unlikely punch amongst its more gentile neighbours.

However, due to its unique, welcoming vibe, its insistence in providing high quality, free live music every night of the week, and the incredible support of its customers, the bar has developed a strong position in the community, as licensees Simon and Sharon Colgan, explain:

"The Blues Bar is not just a pub, it has a defined character that has aged extremely well," says Simon. "It is the only live music venue in Harrogate that has kept its identity during the past 21 years and it continues to attract new customers and performers from miles around."

Modelled on an Amsterdam cafe´ bar it has been going for more than 20 years.
