The 2014 meeting at the Boston Arms Music Room was once again a great success. The stage in the Music Room has now been altered /extended to improve band facility, and as such the room is subject to a lower audience capacity, which will be strictly enforced.
For 2015, we are moving to the larger room upstairs at The Boston, which for everybody’s comfort has a full concert room stage, a new sound system, but still retains the bar in the room, so hopefully we will not lose that special atmosphere we have experienced downstairs over the last twelve years.
We will have to work and adhere to the licensing laws on the venue, which means age restrictions for under fourteens (no admission), and sixteen or under must be accompanied by an adult. Also we do need to have the necessary staff/security to meet H & S and licence requirements. Our audience are not usually any problem, as we pretty well know everyone attending, be even so, we had to have one unreasonable (drunk) fan escorted off the premises last November! More table seating will be available on request, although we do not want to turn it into a “sit down gig”.
Ray Davies did attend again, but on condition that we were able to get him in and out with no hassle, the problem is that Ray is perfectly happy to sign autographs, but some fans can’t leave it at that, and want to be “stuck in his face” exchanging life stories, or book projects! Ray comes along to enjoy the event, talk with the band members and to some extent be a fan of the music, which may seem strange but that’s the way it is.
Having said all that, booking is now open-
