With regret Shaun and I have decided to discontinue running Amigos from the new year. There's no big story, we're simply both too busy as working musicians to be able to devote the time needed. I have had to turn down a couple of tours this year, and Shaun has been offered some dates for 2017, two of which would have clashed with club night. We're delighted to let you know that Malcolm O'Dell and his wife Ann will take over from January, keeping the Amigos name. Malcolm and Anne ran the Silver Sabres club in Gillingham for many years and are known, I'm sure, to almost all of you who go to Amigos. We liked the way Silver Sabres was run and we have no doubt they will prove to be wonderful hosts at Amigos. Shaun and I have enjoyed the club thoroughly and we hope we mostly got it right when it came to booking the acts.
The remaining acts booked for 2016 are:
Sept 6: Kay D
Oct 4: Ray Peters Band PLUS Liza Marshall Band
Nov 1: Tony Crooks
Dec 6: Gone Country.
Acts for 2017 will be announced by Malcolm and Anne in due course.
Thank you all for supporting us since our opening night in Feb 2014!
See you at Amigos for Kay D on the 6th.Sept
