ha! almost a year on from when i put a similar post to misters i see it still exactly the same. will it change in another years time.


It'll still be the same middle aged men wanting a night away from their wives playing the same shite jazz/blues every single week.

It is with great sadness that I now do not attend the running horse.

A once great venue for bands and open mike nights and jam sessions.

Sadly If you are not in the clique then you have no chance of performing or if by some mistake you are allowed then the talking increases to a level that the performer cannot be heard.

I know of several musicians who have waited and waited to play and have been ignored on more than one occassion.

They have all been driven away.

I recall one man (I do not know his name) But he has an incredible voice, I have heard him sing "The Port of Amsterdam" and it truely brought tears to my eyes.
Other songs I recall are "I Don't Wanna Talk About It", and "Only You" just him and his guitar.

I have not seen this person for over two years in the Runner.
This is what I am talking about....If the cliques bring you money then fine KEEP THEM AND LICK EACHOTHERS ARSOLES.....
But you have run off the biggests talents this City has ever known.

Farewell "Runner" How the mighty has fallen.
