Oh what a night!

I make no apologies for stealing a song title to describe last night's gig at the Kings Arms in Burton, as it was such a fab night of music and songs.

Southend's finest (who are both now Cumbrian residents), Mickey Jupp and Mo Witham played for almost 3 hours in the bar, getting through a 3-part set list of some 25 songs, many of which were written by Mickey himself.

People came from near and far to listen, there were even fans from London, the Midlands and Ireland! Mickey and Mo clearly enjoyed the intimate atmosphere of the bar, as well as the excellent beer, and the audience obviously enjoyed their performance!

For anyone who missed the night, never fear, as Mickey and Mo will be back - they are taking part in an event later this year in the Memorial Hall - more details will be available soon.
