Great night at the George last night. Blanket Apology played a variety of songs, including rock and R&B classics, such as Take Me To The River, with Derek Boak giving his best powerful vocals. They even let me play half a dozen 50s and 50s pop and rock and roll classics, although whether they were classic after I'd finished with them is another matter. The band joined me for some of the songs. They plan to perform in the George regularly on the last Saturday of the month, but will be playing an extra gig next weekend on Easter Saturday.
I like this pub, a real local, from which the scallies who gave it a bad reputation have been banished. If only it sold real ale...
So that's Easter Saturday in the George Hotel on the corner of Duke Street and Cemetery Road. Free; begins around 8-30pm.
Too early for cautious optimism?
