Smithy’s Marina Bar – Review

Earlier in the week we popped down to the Marina to deliver posters and check all was well,  and was somewhat surprised to see that they were in the middle of a refurbishment, with new carpets going in and workers all around.

It would appear that the Marina bar is under new management and after a bit of a chat with Tom the bar manager, it transpired that they were turning the marina bar into a focussed music venue, with open mic nights and plenty of quality bands.

We set up on the newly plastered stage area and were pleased to see that the electrics had been re-wired and new sockets were in place, especially as our last visit resulted in the melt-down of our PA amp to a condition beyond help.

A good crowd was forming and some familiar faces showed up again,  and later a host of Steve’s relatives and friends turned up making for a great crowd.  Thanks to all those who came down to support us, we really appreciate it.

The night went really well and we were re-booked for March and a possible summer music festival.

We really look forward to playing there again and might even pop down for a jam if it gets quite.
