Live at the Prince
Fletch' provided the music at last Saturday's live music
session. I must admit that from the name, I had expected
to see a band rather than one person with a guitar and backing
tapes but sometimes an evening turns out to be not quite
as one imagines. Saturday was certainly a big surprise.
Roger Fletcher is a good guitarist and would do well with
coming Saturday, I am reliably informed that there will
be a band - 'Steady Eddie and the Boogie Men', who I am
told are very good. Hope to see you there.
will be a 'Live Club' in the function room at the Prince
on Saturday, 5th May, featuring 'Back Alley Sally' and 'Cubra
Libra'. There is an entrance fee of £3.00 to this
event but both are top bands and this promises to be a good
this stage, I am not sure what is happening on Saturday
12th but on 19th May, the all girl band, 'Underwired' will
be returning. The last 'Underwird' performance was great
and saw members of the audience joining in. I'm looking
forward to that one as well.
had lots of experience of local music, Tina will be booking
bands to fill in gaps in the diary and beyond that. The
future should hopefully see the Prince of Wales becoming
THE place to go for Saturday live bands in Ross so why not
give local musicians a head start by coming along and giving
them your support?
