Doors 7.30pm Music starts at 8.15pm.
The music will performed by the Playtime Quartet of Martin Kershaw (saxes), Graeme Stephen (guitar), Mario Caribé (bass) and Tom Bancroft (drums), plus a special guest tbc very soon.
The audience will be spread around the hall seated in households/parties. To make this easier and look/feel better we won’t be using tables. Feel free to bring something portable to rest your drinks on!
Naturally, whilst we are delighted to be able to welcome you to Pathhead Village Hall for this momentous occasion, there are still a number of Covid restrictions we would request you follow:
Physical distancing must be observed for the duration – we will have the hall marked out to indicate the seating plan. We would ask that audience members do not congregate in certain areas (such as toilets, entry/exit or refreshment points) which could make physical distancing difficult.
Masks must be worn when moving around.
There will be table service for drinks orders from the bar adjoining the venue.
We will need to take contact details of all attendees.
We're so excited to be playing in front of a live audience in a venue again and look forward to seeing you for a magical night of fabulous music!
Quotes from last gig's audience:
I had a fantastic time last night - thanks so much. The drinks service in the Hall was fabulous
We thought the layout was well laid out and liked the names on the chairs. Drinks service excellent. Also liked the musicians being in a rectangle in the middle. It all felt safe.
I really enjoyed the gig. The atmosphere was great. The spaced seating added to the feeling of security and the drinks service kept moving about to a minimum. Very well thought out.
The performance area ‘in the round’ worked very well and added to the ‘Jazz Club’ feel as did the smoke machine and lighting.
Sound: The level balance and sound were perfect (as far as I can tell from a technical point of view). The acoustics of the room I think isn’t ideal, but it really didn’t bother me much.
Layout: Interesting touch that circle. Like a traditional theatre. I suppose it gave you a convenient way to impose social distancing.
Social distancing: You couldn’t do any better. It’s a big hall and people are pretty far apart and in a circle, you have at most 2-3 parties around you each 2 or more metres away. Perfect!
We really, really enjoyed it, fantastic gig.
Thought the sound was excellent, easily better than at the Outhouse and
better than many gigs we've seen. Perhaps the layout and proximity helped
too. The layout was miles better than everyone being in rows facing the same way. Distancing felt fine - again better or as good as most pubs /
The drinks service was lovely and done with some real charm.
So, 10 out of 10.
