The one where I get overexcited by the weekend!!!

Posted: December 3, 2010 in Uncategorized

Oh yes… I’m not kidding when I say I’m getting over excited. ‘THE QUIREBOYS’  are here tomorrow and it’s going to be so good. We’ve sold a lot of tickets and are hopeful that we’ll sell out on the door. This will be the fourth return for the awesome Quireboys and we can’t wait – they are so good !LAST CHANCE FOR TICKETS HERE!  Then on Saturday we have sparkles and glam with KISS tribute ‘DRESSED TO KILL’ , it’s crazy – two of the most waited for gigs and they’re happening on the same weekend. What a double whammy of great music!  It’s a bit nervy, doing the sound for two professional bands but it’s all good, they know what they’re doing and with our top-notch PA we should be in for an awesome sound. The boys from DRESSED TO KILL will be using all the usual on stage sparkles including various indoor pyrotechnics and fire eating – it’s certainly going to be a visual spectacular.   Make sure you come and share this weekend with us, you’d be nuts to miss either gig if I’m honest!

Preparations for Christmas are underway, we’ve located all our decorations and are picking up the tree on Monday so the pub will be looking very twinkly very soon.  Mum loves it, all those Christmas lights to put up, it takes so long and all those little bulbs to test lol. It will all be worth it when they are up and sparkling.  The snow has helped us all feel a little more ready for the festive season, it’s the way Christmas should look after all. It will be here and gone before we know it so it’s time to make the most of the snow and the festive cheer… YAY!!!

I’ve almost caught up with all my deadlines, the January newsletter is just about ready for printing, everything went a little mad as all our suppliers shut down over Christmas so all our ads and artwork have to be in two weeks earlier than normal. It’s been a little bit of a mad rush over the last couple of days to get everything ready and in order.  In true sods law form – just in time for the Christmas Quiz our laptop has decided to stop outputting volume in stereo which means in some parts of the quiz and karaoke we are only coming out of one side of the PA system. In short it’s irreparable as the socket is fixed directly to the motherboard rather than a sound card that we can just change. So we’re gonna have to get a new laptop. There’s always something that needs repairing or fixing around here…it does my nut in at times lol. I guess it’s the nature of the job.

On a more positive note, it’s the quiz this week. It’s become something of a legend in the city, I never expected people to love it so much. I have to admit – it really is good fun and totally worth the 15 hours it takes me to create each one.  The Christmas one is always fun too as I get to include cheesy tunes and videos of a christmassy nature. It’s fab – if you haven’t been and had a go yet, you really should get yourself a team together and come and have a go. You need four people preferably with a little knowledge of music, the quiz includes music from the 1940’s right up to present day so the bigger age range of your team players the more chance you have of stealing the prize (which is usually the money pot of players entry money). This week we may put something a little extra festive in for the winners. It starts at 9pm and is only £1 each. Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough!!!

Right I think that’s all I’m going to say for tonight, It’s Thursday and it’s time to clean the lines so I better get my butt moving.

Get over here this weekend, it’s going to be awesome every night!!!

    Hi Charley

    Quireboys should be good – looking forward to it!
    As for laptop – pop over to Anglian Internet on Rowntree Way (or speak to one of your bandmates) – you can get an external USB sound card that will do the job quite cheaply…
