We wrote about the last gigs before the closing of the Bulls Head for refurbishment on 30th June. The last person to to leave the club will have been drummer Les Cirkel, but the penultimate gig was by the great Stan Tracey.
Music at the Bulls Head will re-start under the new ownership of Geronimo Inns on Monday December 16th. We’re being told the new music room has a real club atmosphere. The club is also taking one great leap forward: online advance booking is available- see link below. Yes, you read that right. Online booking.
The historic very first gig next Monday is drummer Peter Miles with the Alan Glen / John O’Leary All Stars with special guests presenting their Back to the Flamingo club night.
The second night is an eight-piece band led by Derek Nash.
Future acts booked include the stalwarts: Peter King, Art Themen, Alan Price.
Spare a thought: the Bull, the world will not be the same without Stan Tracey (see a lovely tribute by Ivan Hewett, remembering hearing Stan at the Bull.)
