A great gig featuring Amanda Shires at McHughs Basement as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival. Atmosphere was good and crowd very appreciative. Looking forward now to Kevin Welch on Monday night at the same venue.

Thanks for the comments on the show at McHughs Paul. Plenty more good RMC shows coming up.
Thank you The Real Music Club for choosing me to support Matt Andersen. The gig was amazing. It is so great to see artists from around the world on a more personal level & The Real Music Club provides that with ease..
Matt Andersen show was outstanding & intimate & the staff/sound guy at Errigle were so lovely.
I think last night was probably the highlight of the RMC's Autumn/Winter programme. The girls were simply amazing. Soaring harmonies and top class playing. Once again sound engineer Cregan excelled himself on the sound desk. Every note and harmony could be heard loud and clear. Two unplugged encores from the middle of the audience rounded off an exceptional night of music.
A great live musical experience at Mandela Hall on Saturday night ... good to see the event so well attended. Great support from his backing group - the Dukes & Duchesses also featuring his wife Allison Moorer.
Great show by Chris Smither not often you see the whole audience giving a standing ovation. Well deserved.
Chris is on his way to Denmark to play at a Bob Dylan Birthday tribute show. This got some of us thinking about the RMC hosting a birthday show for Bob. Idea would be several RMC local regulars playing their favourite Dylan numbers. Obviously there would be a cake and baloons and more likely the man himself would drop in to sing a couple.
Anyone interested in RMC putting on such a birthday bash ?
Hi Paul, glad you enjoyed the Anthony Toner gig and are looking forward to Ben Glover in the Black Box this Friday.
I got a couple of t shirts make up last year as a test. I give one to Mr Heaney one to a relative and am posing in the other one from gig to gig.
Jim has said that if there is enough interest we can look to getting more and selling them to club members. Thanks for the suggestion about other items, the RMC merchandising department will get back to you.
Great night listening to Anthony Toner and his band. He is a real entertainer and good to hear his song being used for the UTV weather forecast. Looking forward to hearing Ben Glover this week and also another chance to hear that amazing keyboard player.
Apart from Anthony and Ben my favourite so far has been Kendal Carson. She was amazing!!!
Where can I get a 'real music club' Tshirt like John's? I would also like a mug and car sticker. Any future plans to merchandize?
When there is a full house and a great band on the stage there is nowhere I have seen, and I've been in a few venues in my day, where there is an atmosphere quite like what is generated in The Errigle Inn.

Hey John, i've heard rumours of MC auditions being held in the RMC next week :-)
Thanks for the kind words Jim. I got a few nice shots. I love Peter's songs. He has a great style, lovely voice and a great guitar technique. Sadly he closes his eyes 99% of the time when he is singing. He only opens them when he talks to the audience...lol
I'll try to get to more shows. Feel free to use the photos for the gallery or flyers. I'll post a couple more.
