New country music venue promises much BY Mark Ritchie
Wakefield City Club is the place to be for all country music fans every Tuesday night, as Gilly’s Country Music Club has set up in the club and made the City Club their new home. Gilly is Chris Gill, who previously ran the club at The Lupset Hotel.
Next Tuesday, September 28, sees the new club kicking off with an appearance from top band Collier Dixon Line.
Hopefully country fans from right across our district will flock and re-establish Gilly’s Country Music Club at a brand new venue.
Recent press release
20TH NOVEMBER 2010
As reported by M T http://mrtreviews.weebly.com/
A Great night at Gilly’s Country Music Club in the Wakefield City club with Wakefield born Dave Bryan. A good attendance greeted Emmerdale regular Dave; he has to have the best memory for country songs. He never fails to amaze me. Gilly has been booking him now for thirty years and he still pulls at least 10 different songs. Lots of club members now starting to turn up on the night and adding to a great audience. Thanks to all the people that bring raffle prizes and still buy raffle tickets...this is so amazing and the club and Gilly are very grateful. Some of the songs Dave did was "People are crazy "by Billy Currington "Ravishing Ruby" by Tom T Hall and "Dirty old town" by Kiren O ‘Kane. Well I think we can safely say, “Gilly’s CMC has taken off”
