Where entertainers come to be entertained ...

Hi, following requests for another night of musical mayhem, we have acquired the use of The Tavern Pub at The Hallgarth Manor Country House Hotel at Pittington, about 3 mins from the A1(M).

Click for directions

The evenings are held fortnightly on a Tuesday and we kick off at about 8pm, although early arrival is advised as it is already very popular.

We’re looking for all entertainers in Acoustic / Electro acoustic style and we’ll have a PA with mikes, effects and a couple of small acoustic amps. Also there will be bass gear and Uncle Colin as resident backing guitar/synth. It’s a lovely little venue so please come along, strut your stuff, and have a laugh.

Hope to see you there, Regards

Jim Tait

Just a taste of what is in store ....

Christmas Evening with the Stars (well it was a clear sky)

A special thank you to everyone (and Davy Hodges) who showed up last night at Mayhem at the Manor. What a great night, good music (and plenty of it!) good crack and best of all, that wonderful Hallgarth atmosphere where everybody’s there to have fun with their friends. Our lack of egos and Divas makes it a relaxed place to be and can I hope that you all continue to support this fortnightly bash for as long as we can. Special thanks go out to the Management, who have trusted us with their antique chairs and supplied us with excellent “drinking food” throughout the year. Thanks to Col and Stew for their tireless support and to Alan Prudhoe for his continued presence and the fact that he keeps the Spennymoor Rievers in control. Malcolm the Camera deserves an Oscar for his Videos and cracking ’50s songs and so on. It would be too long-winded to go on mentioning everyone so you all know who you are. Really good to see Alan Leightell with Marie last night, let’s hope they make it a regular visit. Keep your eyes on the website as Mr Prudhoe uploads Mr Rocks’ Videos.

Merry Xmas Everybody and see you all on the 4th January 2011, same place, maybe starting a little earlier if we keep having numbers like last night!

  1. And a massive thank you from me to Colin, Stewy, and the other wonderful backing musicians, for mediocre act sound fantastic. But enough about Big Jim.

    Thanks from everyone Jim for making it all happen and doing it so well.
