If you are a band looking for a gig at the Malt Shovel Tavern you need to be aware that we receive dozens (if not hundreds) of requests. Please bear in mind that our Wednesday night gigs are predominantly Blues and unless your band is a Blues band you are unlikely to be selected. If you have your own website, YouTube or MySpace site where we can hear a sample of your music, please let us have link information. Alternatively, send us a short biography of the band (number of members, presence on the blues circuit etc) and a sample of your music on a CD. We cannot answer all requests but if your CD is promising we will get back to you. It may take some time and bands are booked 12 months in advance. Please advise what fee you would charge for a two-hour gig.

Change to Quiz Nights
Our quiz nights' format is changing from April.
Instead of having a music quiz on the third Monday of each month and a general knowledge quiz on the third Thursday ALL quizzes will now be held on a Thursday night, alternating between the general knowledge quiz and music quiz every two weeks. So, the next music quiz will be on Thursday 18th April. See the upcoming events panel for further dates.
