THE STAGE BLUES CLUB
Tickets are now available for our "Blue Christmas" Party.
Friday December 8th, 2023
Have a blue Christmas at the Stage Blues Club Christmas Party!
We are excited to change things up for our December Club Night. We're making space for a dance floor. Food will be provided in a buffet format. There will be a variety of plentiful unreserved seating; tables around the dance floor, for those who wish to take a breather in between dances; tables behind the stage, to sit and chat or perhaps to sample some of the buffet; a quieter lounge area with sofas, for more private conversations or simply to chill with a drink.
Our main act will be the wonderful Leitina Reuben (www.leitinareuben.com). “Voice nurtured in church; performance developed on the stage; music founded in Gospel, soul and RnB.” Leitina has led choirs and performed on stage in Musicals, in bands and solo in venues large and small across the UK and abroad. Leitina will be appearing with our accomplished house band, The Blue Fire.
We are also pleased to have singer-songwriter Malc Slate (malcslate.com) perform a support slot beforehand, showcasing original compositions from his forthcoming album In Boxes.
ALL TICKETS £30 including food.
THE STAGE BLUES CLUB
Live Music in a Blues Club Atmosphere
Music starts 8pm, finishes 11:30pm. Doors close 12pm.
Address: The Old Theatre Deli, 4 Market Place, Southwell, NG25 0HE
Heard of “Ronnie Scott’s” in London, or “Peggy’s Skylight” in Nottingham?
This is Southwell’s very own Blues Club, modelled on those famous venues. Expect an evening of quality music and fine food.
Quality jazz ‘n’ blues from our resident guitarist, Rhydian Wyn, with his house band “The Blue Fire” (piano- Colin Reed; bass- Fabio Pulizzi; drums- Alex Brompton). They will be joined by various opening acts and guest vocals from around the Nottinghamshire blues scene. Each evening will have its own unique line up and feel, from traditional blues through to jazz, swing and blues rock.
A later set will be more energetic, showcasing blues guitar standards such as “Born Under a Bad Sign” and “Still Got the Blues”, together with some unusual cover versions in a blues rock style, as well as a handful of original “Rhydian Wyn and the Blue Fire” compositions. Rhydian has assembled a quality group of professional musicians to form our resident band, and we are sure you won’t be disappointed.
You will have your own personal table for the evening. You will be shown from the door to your table, where you can relax as waiting staff bring your drinks and platters of quality food, prepared in the kitchens of “The Old Stage Deli”. We are serving sharing platters for your table, such as cold sharing platters including English Charcuterie and meats, Artisan cheeses, Chutney, sourdoughs, Mini bruschetta, and pastries; they will include vegetarian and vegan options as required.
There is a full bar with table service. Simply raise your hand and the waiting staff will attend to you at your table.
