The Big Note Club Birthday
2 Years Solo at the Hope and Anchor
My word 2 years solo - and
how they have flown. During that time the club has gone from strength
to strengh and continually expanded.
We have staged over 150 shows
and given a stage space to hundreds of artists.
We have seen many stunning
shows from spell binding "you can hear a pin drop" to
sizzling adrenilan fuelled performances by a huge variety of performers.
At the club we are proud to have witnessed mastery skills from
established performers and watch new talent develop and blossom.
To celebrate we are holding
our second birthday party on Sunday June 3rd 2001. Featuring
a bursting night of 70's sounds, guest spots, the Big Note Band
and DJ's 'til midnight - rippin'.
We would like to take this
opportunity to thank everyone that has helped, performed at and
attended the club. Making it inspiring, exciting and such a blast.
