John wade, 15/04/13
Like these small venues so much more than the arenas much more intimate and an incredible atmosphere that sometimes get lost in larger venues
Mick Hucknall (15/04/13) - Mick hucknall York
Thanks for what can only be described as a truly fantastic evening Mick always puts on a show his voice as we all know is incredible but for me its his passion for what he does he looked to be enjoying just as much as we did so I can only say once more thank you for a wonderful memorable evening.
