Nettlebed Music Club Gigs & Reports




We had a great night last night for our Christmas Dance with Pat Jordan & Finians Rainbow. A huge crowd all singing and dancing to our friend Pat and his band What a treat to see so many people, may it continue into 2019, our 38th year! We are one of the longest surviving Clubs in the country, lets keep it up. Will add more photos later.

There was so much cheering at the end that we booked them again for Christmas dance December 21st 2019. Put it in your diary now and be sure to come and enjoy another superb evening.

Message from Pat

Thank you Sue and Roger for having us and what a super crowd to play to Merry Christmas to all Pat and the Boys x


Sorry this report is very late but good old BT has messed up yet again so we had no broadband, landline and TV for yet another 10 days!

We had a great night with John C King last week, another small crowd who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. John with his rich voice and very little talk was again very popular. We have sold out for the Christmas Dance this Saturday, it would be so nice if we had some of that support during the year! We will give 2019 a go and hope again but I fear we will not see our 40th anniversary, you know what they say, use it or lose it!  We are one of the longest running Clubs in the country, let’s try and keep it.

Anyway rant over, thanks John, hope to see you again soon.

To those of you we won’t see on Saturday we wish you a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy new year.


Apologies to all who have looked on here following last Saturday when Pete Brazil took Nettlebed by storm. I know I am a bit late but times have been a bit difficult. Anyway we had a really big crowd out to enjoy the music of this very popular solo. Lots of new songs and, by popular request, a good few of the old favourites. Times have not been easy in the last year for Pete but he has come up trumps in the true professional he is. I am sure Jimmy would be very proud of him. The dance floor was rocking and those who preferred to listen (like me) enjoyed it just as much. Great to see some new faces again, we hope you enjoyed our friendly Club and will come again. Our condolences to my brother, Pat, in the loss of Silv, they have been coming to gigs ever since we started in 1981, rest in peace Silv, we’ll all miss you. Thanks Pete for a great evening and thanks to all for coming along. Hope to see you all again for Declan Gaynor on October 13th. We need your great support.

25 years of Curtis Magee and Nettlebed, yes he has visited us Every year and always puts on a great performance.

Last night was no exception, it was to be his last night with us as he is embarking on theatre concert shows, we wish him all the very best with this. Going back to last night he did an exceptional show and with a full house everyone danced or listened to his ever polished performance. He always has time for the people and they all love him. Theresa for her 88th birthday and anniversaries were celebrated and a great time was had by all. Sorry no photos but Pat was not available. We all send him and Silv our love and best wishes at this very difficult time.

Thank you Curtis, good luck in all you do and we hope to catch you again somewhere. Thank you also to everyone who came to make a great evening.

We now look forward to another good crowd for Pete Brazil on September 22nd.



We  had a superb night last night with Cardy & Coke, the dance floor was full all night. What a great selection of songs they sang of country, sixties and, must add, a terrific rendition of “How Great Thou Art”! Nice to see a few new faces, we need you to keep us going. Our thanks to all who came and, yet gain, created the brilliant atmosphere that Nettlebed always seems to achieve. Hopefully see a great crowd for Curtis on September 1st. Due to all the travelling he will not be playing the Clubs next year so let’s give him a great Nettlebed send off.
