Thread Name: Saturday evening venue for Sidcup, Kent?
Subject: RE: Saturday evening venue for Sidcup, Kent?
I am indeed out here Richard, and in keeping with an E-Mail I sent to Sue and you, I would like to take issue with the no keyboards rule, which is, I'm afraid, a step too far.

Are you really intending to bar the likes of Clive Lever, and indeed our duo "Sic Transit"? You know how much is added to a performance by his input.

That, in my opinion, would be a shame, and a serious obstacle to booking some very good artists.

Although there would be no case for drum kits, or full on electric guitars and basses, when using PA, acoustic guitars and mandolins with pick-ups would obviously be DI'd for the sake of balance, and keyboards ditto, putting volume control in the hands of the organiser.

I would be reluctant to be organising, or performing, at a venue which excluded my musical partner.
