It starts at 7.30pm and runs ’till late. Free entry
Why not get along to the Haunted House Acoustic’s Christmas shindig upstairs at The Pilgrim? You might even bump into the ghost of old Jacob Marley (no relation to Bob) bopping around to music from Jessicas Ghost and friends.
It kicks off at 8.30pm is free to get in. To entice you out on a Wednesday night the event comes with free mince pies!
Thursday 18th December 2008 – Live Jazz & Acoustic Jam Night with The Three Teas
This is one of those new events that we said had made it’s way into the Liverpool Acoustic Diary this week. If you’re looking for an acoustic jam event with a difference then we think we’ve just found it.
Taking place at the Brew Tea Bar on St Paul’s Square (off Dale Street) the organisers are looking for acoustic musicians who are happy to play at lower acoustic volumes but still enjoy the fun of improvising with other musicians. Drum Kit (with brushes), Stand up Bass will be provided. (Please bring your own instruments)
Starts at 5.00pm and ends approx 8.00pm
To book your slot call in or phone Julian on 07808003372.
