Nicky Wire from the Manic Street Preachers, NME
Never less than an impressive demonstration of virtuosity
Andrew Mueller, Uncut
James Taylor keeps it swinging, fun and unpretentious
Andy Robson, Jazzwise
Taylor’s organ sound first sears the ears and then goes straight to the feet

Taylor is one of our finest jazz organists… A musician who has forged his own path… His playing is snappy and crisp…

Absolutely delighted to confirm the return of one of Medways finest live bands THE LEN PRICE 3. The band who first played at The Westgarth back in April 2015 return later in the year, November 24th to be precise, for what will be another blinding night of live music. One of the best live bands around.
Supports to be sorted & tickets available soon.
Saturday May 20th BRIX AND THE EXTRICATED show is postponed. Please see below for band statement.
It is with regret that we announce that Stephen and Paul Hanley’s mother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the weekend. In light of this Brix and The Extricated will be postponing and rescheduling the upcoming gigs at Hebden Bridge Trades Club (19/5) and Georgian Theatre in Stockton (20/5). Our thoughts and sympathies are very much with the Hanley family at this difficult time. We will announce the rescheduled gigs as soon as we know.
We can confirm that our next gig will be at The Roundhouse in London on Saturday 10th June (with The Wedding Present).
Thank you all for your understanding.
Happily the show has been quickly rescheduled for SATURDAY OCTOBER 14th.
Original tickets remain valid for the rescheduled show.
May is almost upon us and these are the two shows coming up at The Georgian Theatre next month. Both pretty special events – tickets from venue & on line from SEE etc
This Thursday April 27th Spear of Destiny make their 5th visit to The Georgian Theatre. Always a great night when Kirk & co return to what is very much their second home. The band are playing only a handful of shows on this tour as a warm up to the highly successful (and now very sold out) Westworld weekend, now in its 15th year.
Tickets have been selling incredibly well for this show. Due to the increased capacity inside The Georgian tickets are likely to be available on the door (£15) but still available from the venue & on line from SEE Tickets etc
Support comes from Thornaby’s finest The Filth who are taking a break from recording to open the show.
Only a few days to wait now until WIRE play in Stockton! Support from The Cathode Ray this is going to be a fantastic evening – get your tickets soon!
