Will do Tony. I don't think there will be any membership subscriptions or lots of rules & regulations. The agenda is that we are there to play music & meet up with friends old & new. The only rule is that one must participate with some sort of musical instrument or voice. We've only set ourselves up as a 'club' because that is what we were advised to do by the first council official, as a way of getting round this stupid law & the silly,narrow-minded plonkers that have complained to the council. After all the landlord is not making zillions by having us there, we probably put more customers off than attract them in!! What we're protesting about is the fact that like other people we go to a pub to socialise but we don't play pool, darts or dominoes, we gather & attempt to produce something vaguely musical. I could understand it if we were loud enough to disturb the whole neighbourhood but we only disturb the regulars of the pub & they are used to it (probably all deaf!!) May be we all ought to complain to the council every time we walk into a plastic pub with a loud jukebox playing commercial shite.
