Acoustic Slice, the weekly acoustic music night run by local singer/songwriter Alun Parry, is no more. This is what Al had to say on his the Slice’s MySpace blog.
It may feel like the end of an era, but Acoustic Slice is no more. After two fantastic years, I have decided to call time on what was regarded as “by far the best music night in Liverpool.”
I want to thank everybody who played Acoustic Slice either as a booked act or as a loyal open miker, or in many cases both.I am also very grateful to the many friends I have made on the music scene through Acoustic Slice. We’ll keep in touch.
For artists who are booked onto Acoustic Slice already, don’t worry. There will be a new music night at the same venue on a Monday night. It won’t be Acoustic Slice but your bookings will be honoured. If you have any questions about Acoustic Slice’s replacement then contact Ogo on www.myspace.com/ogosmusic
Thanks for all your support, friends. No doubt there will be other Acoustic Slice projects in the near future.
For those of you who maybe haven’t come across Acoustic Slice before it was an acoustic music night run by Liverpool singer songwriter Alun Parry from 2006-2008 at Parr Street. Liverpool.com gave it the accolade of “by far the best acoustic night in Liverpool.” It was a weekly night of quality booked acts and just under an hour of open mike. Each week featured top quality booked acoustic acts, many of whom included Acoustic Slice as one of their tour dates. As such, as well as top notch Scouse talent, the night featured acts from as far afield as Australia and the USA. It also featured a sister podcast aimed at promoting the guests at Acoustic Slice. You can hear its back catalogue of shows at Alun Parry’s Acoustic Playtime Podcast Page
