BANDS: Lots to enjoy in the town

I’d like to praise the staff and promoter involved in putting on an excellent standard and range of bands at The Tavern Pub in Blyth, with two brilliant young north east bands impressing the busy crowds over the past weekend.

The Middens and Velvoir are a must-see and had the crowd begging for more.

Their talent deserves to be recognised by a record label.

There are also good cover bands of groups such as The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Oasis, The Who and The Beatles, along with Mark Morriss from The Bluetones, Tom Hingley from the Inspiral Carpets, Nigel the singer from Dodgy and the excellent Paul Lamb and The King Snakes in the next few months.

If you like live music with a good atmosphere in an intimate setting, then I highly recommend checking out this local venue.

There is also another live music event returning to Blyth Beach in the summer, which was a great day last year.

Add to that the The Tall Ships three-day event in August and this summer is shaping up to be a corker for the people of Blyth and any visitors from surrounding towns.
