I'm so pleased. I spoke to Vince Eager who has very kindly agreed to come to our Wednesday Shindig on the 20th March 2019 and give a talk about his Rock and Roll career in the 50's and early 60's.
Appearing with the greats of the era. On tour with Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent. Shows with Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Joe Brown. The Larry Parnes stable of stars.
The inside stories of the times. Film, pictures, music. plus live band THE REACTIONS. Plus 'Remember Then' Eddie Cochran.
This promises to be one hell of a show so make sure you put your name down for it. Be there or be Oval.

BY MUSICIANS - FOR MUSICIANS
Lankykats was conceived as a venue for musicians to meet, get together and play.
When this began on the 30 September 2011 it all started with a scratched together backline of amplification,sound system, drums and mostly donated gear. Over the years we have strived to upgrade this equipment by selling old stock and gradually upgrading with better gear.
This is a continuing work in progress where visiting bands can enjoy performing with state-of-the-art equipment.
The £1 admission fee for all attendee's, a prize raffle draw, and other raised funds are used first and foremost in this capacity.
After this and surplus ammounts are donated to our delegated charities.
All Lankykats volunteers, front room and back room, together with the visiting bands, donate their talents and time for free.
No one receives any remuneration or cash-in-kind.
