I’ve always believed that it is vital to review and support up and coming talent whenever I can. Tonight at The Skerries in Bangor, North Wales I witnessed four solid reasons why I continue to do it.

I was really impressed with The Skerries. A small traditional pub at the bottom of the longest high street in Britain (one mile top to bottom). The back room where the bands perform is large enough to hold a decent crowd and project great sound, but also small enough for the place to fill up quickly.

It began with confusion as the online ticket companies had billed the venue as The Live Rooms, Chester – so I beg to think how many people got off the train and walked across the road and into the wrong venue in the wrong country!!
The Live Rooms in Wrexham, which is run by the same people as it’s English namesake is the old Central Station. It’s had a revamp and looks much improved inside.
