Loudhailer Acoustic at The Back Room October 2014

Loudhailer Acoustic Rabbit flyerThe first Loudhailer Acoustic, all acoustic open mic night at our new home – Cottingham’s ace live music venue, The Back Room – was fabulous. Thanks to Paul Sutton for a smashing welcome, a lovely friendly atmosphere and great live music philosophy.

It’s always good to see familiar and new faces in the audience as well as players, so special thanks to everyone who came to listen to the music. Players are welcome, just let us know if you are coming to play. But you don’t have to play to come, it’s always a top night out with an amazing range of fabulous live acoustic music, so all are welcome to come and listen to the music and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

We managed to pack in no less than 15 performers who played three song sets – that includes a couple of duos, but still, what a night!

There were so many highlights that I’m at risk of writing a novel, so instead I’ll caption Rich’s photos. It really did feel like we’d been on an adventure through everyone’s amazing songs and stories – from Hessle Road to Nashville, via the Mississippi. We ventured through Victorian England from the gutter to high society. There were (slightly) rebellious antics, pirates, crocodiles, bluebirds and some fabulous boogie woogie whoops. We headed up to Hartlepool, and back down to London where we popped into the Hammersmith Odeon in 1973 and stopped off to vote (30 seconds well spent) on the way back to Asda on Hessle Road. I was captivated throughout the whole evening.

What a top Loudhailer Acoustic at The Back Room – here’s to many more.

The next Loudhailer Acoustic is Thursday 6th November. All welcome to come and listen to the music. It helps us to plan if you let us know if you’re coming to play.
