default New Venue in Nunny looking for bands

The Blue Bear in Abbey Street Nuneaton is now doing a live Saturday night for original bands only and is looking for good, experienced acts - nothing TOO alternative, so unfortunately, full on screamo isn't going to work.

They are putting on just one band per week and are paying around £150. However, if you want to take along your own support, you are welcome to do so but you then have to split the fee as you see fit.

You need to be able to play for around 45 minutes or more if possible.

They're nice people and the place has a nice feel about it.

Contact Karen O'Neill on 07807 865230 and tell her John from the Sound Foundry put you in touch

This sounds promising (as any new venue is!). Can anyone tell people on here a little more about the venue. Is it a bar or a pub, do they get in a regular crowd or is the landlady looking for the band to bring the crowd, do they have a p.a and soundman (is it any good?).

Thanks

Hi,

Its a pub that used to be called Elliots, it was a just there never really went in there pub, years before it was the pump and tap which had bands on occasionally, bit of a goth pub then its quite thin and long, not sure what they have done to it but it sounds good, £150, thats great that they are willing to pay the bands, good luck with your gig there

My God, I remember the Pump & Tap, played in there years back (before The Red List days) and our singer stormed out half way through the gig! We carried on regardless though

Tar mate, we look forward to playing a gig with you too.

The gig there went suprisingly well, I say suprising because when we walked in it was a classic stop the record and stare at the strangers moment. But by the time we went on the people there stopped and watched, and then they clapped, and they were quite responsive and friendly, even the few who did walk out signalled to us that they liked it (but were going on to a different place)

We played for an hour (two 30 min sets and a ten minute break) and got the full £150, night was a result.
