Nettlebed Music Club Gigs & Reports Plus Tuesday Dance dates no

Kenny Paul came to Nettlebed last night and, although the “crowd”was small we had a lovely night. We can always guarantee a great atmosphere Because our folk enjoy the music so much. Kenny has a new CD and he sang lots of songs from that together with old favourites. We would like to thank those that came, it looks like it may be a while before we see you all again. Keep watching on here and we will keep you posted. Above all keep yourselves safe in this current situation


Darren Jones made a welcome return to Nettlebed and gave us a really great evening of country. Lots of old classics together with some very different songs. He tried to get us to join in in Welsh but didn’t have much luck!! Great to hear “The Working Man “and “Story of My Life” to name a couple of favourites, A really good crowd was pleasing for us and everyone enjoyed a splendid evening. Happy 80th birthday to Avis and Julie, too, was celebrating a birthday. Sorry no crowd shots, forgot to take my camera!!!!!!!

On a sadder note we have to say goodbye to Fred Brooks, he fought a tremendous seven year battle, he will be sadly missed in our Club and we send our condolences to Gaynor who, so admirably, looked after him. Rest in please Fred But keep dancing!



A terrific night last night at Nettlebed with PETE BRAZIL. Two years since he went solo and has gone from strength to strength. We are very proud that he chose Nettlebed to launch his brand new CD, “Making Tracks”, his first solo recording. Sixteen brilliant tracks, we are sure everyone will be thrilled with it. It was good to see a nice crowd although numbers were affected by illness and we send our best wishes to all who are poorly, you certainly missed a storming night. Pete sang several songs from the new CD as well as old favourites and by the time he did his great version of  Athenry the place was really rocking. Finishing with Rocking All Over the World everyone was sent home on a real high. He announced his retirement at the end of 2020 and said he would be playing New Years Eve 2020 for us. That should be a  cracking night with, I’m sure, a lot of nostalgia. No,  tickets are not yet available but watch this space!!

Thanks Pete, we look forward to seeing you in Bournemouth where we are sold out and waiting for yet more great times.



Shawn Cuddy pulled all the stops out last night at Nettlebed and gave a superb night to a large crowd. How great to see the hall full up and everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves. The atmosphere was truly electric and the dance floor was full all night. We welcomed folk from London, Luton, Swindon, Bournemouth, Southampton, Hull, Richmond Yorkshire ,West Midlands, Oxford, Andover, Melksham, lovely to see new faces. Congratulations to Paul and Lynda on their Ruby Wedding. It was good to see Nite back again, not up to 100 per cent but, hopefully, a night out will help get there.

Thanks to Shawn , Mark, Johnny and all of you for a smashing night.


Dave Sheriff came to Nettlebed last night to a crowded hall and what a night we all had. Dave sang lots of his new songs and lots of the old favourites. The cowboy singalongs are always so popular but then, too, are all of his material new or old. What delight to see so many folk in, it certainly restores the faith. The dance floor was heaving and it was like the old days, please come along when you can and keep this Club going. Good to see Jack and Muriel from London who obviously think the journey worthwhile. There were several new faces, we hope they thought so too.

Roger joined Dave for the ever popular “Best of Friends”



Sylvee enjoyed the evening



We always expect a great night with Pete Brazil and last night was no exception. He really is such a great performer who can lift the crowd to the highest. What a treat to see a full hall for a change with fans having travelled miles from Birmingham, Northampton, Aylesbury, Stevenage, High Wycombe, Andover and West Moors (Bournemouth) to name a few. Pete did several of his new songs which were well received, but the old Okie and Red Rose Cafe together with Athenry brought the house down. Three encores said it all. Thanks Pete, look forward to the next one in October. Next month, May 11th we have the very talented Dave Sheriff on stage, let’s hope we get a crowd again and keep this friendly club going.
