BAND nights at an Arbroath cafe are taking a break after another popular run, writes Johnston Ralston.
Cafe Amor’s ‘Band Night’ experience came to an end last Thursday after six weeks and will restart later this month for a further seven week run.
The last gig came from Carnoustie singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Spiller who entertained a capacity crowd with a range of self-penned and unique covers of tracks such as Talking Heads’ ‘Psycho Killer’.
Organisers the Blessings Outreach Project aim to restart the live music nights on Thursday (March 15) and already have pencilled in the likes of acts such as ‘Seterday 73’, ‘Just Us and Dave’ and ‘The Flames’ to name but a few.
A new twist on the music sessions will be the inclusion of 4 x 4 nights, which will see four artists or bands given the opportunity to grow into a small 20-minute set.
The highlight of the run will be a ‘Scottish Open Mic Night’ on April 5 during the Tartan Week celebrations.
The organisers are keen for all kinds of performers to get in touch, but in particular anything with a Scottish flavour.
There will also be a surprise Scottish makeover for Cafe Amor during Tartan Week.
The ‘Big Screen’ evenings of inspirational cinema will start again on Wednesday, March 21 until the end of April.
