Summer is here!

After a few weeks of amazing weather it has started to rain again, hopefully it shouldn’t hang around for too long. Forecast for Thursday looks promising. We have been lucky to have some fantastic acts playing recently including Sonic Fusion at the Landmark, James Hollingsworth at The Thatch, Steven Paul Ley at The Chill Bar & The Rivals at The Palladium Club. We don’t always get a chance to make every gig but we have heard good things. If you are interested in posting gig write-ups for the website please let us know.

We have just posted an exclusive release from The Devil Delta Blues Band recorded at The Greatest Blues Show on Earth. The gig raised over £500 for North Devon Hospice and you are still able to donate here. A fantastic effort by all and great evening of entertainment.

Also why not pop down to the Croyde Sandcastle Competition on the 11th of August. As long as the weather holds up it should be a great day out!

Public beta released!

Today we launch the public beta of our site, after many late nights and hours spent staring at screens this is what we have created.

We have added a service to upload your own tracks and given the ability to register for the site with Facebook. At this point expect to see a few bugs here and there, we are still very busy at work getting it ready for the official launch on 4th July. At this point we greatly appreciate any feedback you have for us, this website is for the musical community of North Devon and your input is very important to us. If you have any suggestions for the feature, would like to get involved or simply spotted an error please drop us a message on our contact page. Soon we will be rolling out some new features, including an instrument/kit for sale service along with some other resources. Also check out our Twitter & Facebook profiles!

The Greatest Blues Show on Earth

A tribute to the late great John Sharp. The Thatch, Croyde 4th july 7:30pm

This is ‘THE’ gig of the year and a special charity event in tribute to the late great local blues musician and ex-park school science teacher John Sharp, who sadly passed away on April 1st this year after a short battle with cancer.
As many people will know John was very well known on the local music scene in the South West and a key founder member of blues rock band Spoonful, who were a hugely popular local band playing gigs and festivals.

He appeared many times over the last few years at open mic nights at The Thatch Inn, Croyde & The Kings Arms in Georgeham, guesting with the house band and truly lived for the love of blues music.

He will be sadly missed by all, and in tribute his son and local Johnny we are holding a lively night of the best stomping electric live blues music at The Thatch, Croyde, featuring the most talented musicians North Devon has to offer. The evening will feature the reformation of blues rock outfit ‘SPOONFUL’, with the classic line up of guitarist Johnny Sharp, Robin Courtnadge – lead vocals, Neil Pritchard – bass guitar, Rob Delve – drums & Tom Nordon – vocals/guitar + top local rhythm & blues outfit THE DEVIL DELTA BLUES BAND featuring Robin Courtnadge – vocals/guitar, Glen Dawson Davey – drums, Joel Squires – blues harp, Richard Newbery – lead guitar, Giles – bass guitar + special guest appearances by a few other familiar faces and a big old join in together at the end to finish off the best night of the year.

We hope to raise as much money as we possibly can for The North Devon Hospice and will be holding a raffle with prizes + optional fancy dress with a ‘blues brothers’ theme. Let’s all raise a glass in tribute to a great musician and friend and dance the night away!!. See everyone there for a rocking night & party!! ;)
