UPDATED: Gig + Open Mic at The Bay Horse

Monday 30th December 2013

Relaunch of monthly Sunday night entertainment at The Bay Horse, Stamford Bridge.

After two years we have revamped Sunday night entertainment at The Bay Horse, Stamford Bridge to make it bigger and better for musicians and audiences alike.

With new co hosts Mal Fry and Stephen Jackson (Alterego) we have added a featured band slot and a stand-up comedy slot, The Laughter Lines.

The new event will run on the fourth Sunday of every month from January to November 2014, 6pm - 9pm.

We are now looking for:
  • bands (covers & originals) for 30-40 minute showcase option
  • comedians for The Laughter Lines slot of 10- 20 mins
  • solo or duo/duet acts for the acoustic Featured Artist slot 20-30 mins
  • plus an Introducing slot of 15 mins for an 'unknown' artist

Acts should have a CD and/or other gigs to promote at the event if wanting a Featured Artist slot. CDs left with Blueskies will be distributed to local FM radio stations we know who play original music (include your contact details, please!)

We will continue to have slots available for acts to drop in and play with options for jugglers, poets and magicians seeking a place to showcase their talents - a tip off on facebook event pages would be appreciated to help us coordinate everything on the night.

There remains the potential for acts to have featured artist slots at our other gig + open mic events, plus paid gigs with Blueskies 2014 programme and options to play at showcase events for slots at some local music festivals.

Bands/musicians are invited to shout up for the various slots on offer via or message Graham Blueskies on facebook.

Fees are available and will depend on band numbers/experience and locality to York. Those wanting the featured artist slots please send a link to your web/facebook page and a link to your soundcloud/youtube music would be helpful.
