Post subject: Coventry after gig Reply with quote

Hi
Me and my pal are coming to the gig in conventry and very much looking forward to it. However we are concerned and finding it hard to see if coventry can offer anything for after the gig. Last thing we want in the night coming to an anti climax. Hate Dance music but could fun with anything 60s,70s,80s, 90s
Any help greatfully appreciated
Russ

Sounds like you need to go to Scholars.

Excuse the website, it hasn't been updated in a while. The owner died in April & he was the main driving force behind things like this. The Saturday night dj is a good lad & he'll play some 2 Tone if asked, you should be able to get some Mod classics out of him as well....... Cool

To defend myself, Russ wasn't asking about a post gig party, he was asking for anything with 60s 70s 80s & 90s music, so I directed him to the best place I know. Besides it's a Saturday Night & I would never ever direct anybody to go to Spon Street on a weekend night. Hell on Earth.

If you are looking for the West Indian club, you'll be able to find it opposite the row of Police riot vans & Ambulances.

Lol, that's the Cherry Tree, where the last pre-Ricoh gig was held. I knew I shouldn't have played Steps as the last record Laughing

Hahaha I used to go to the Cherry Tree to play in big money Darts Tournaments.

Looks like a pre football match police visit?

Stevo, agreed, Spon St ain't the best place on a saturday night but the WIC is brilliant. they play Ska and old school reggae and Alph and his wonderful staff and clientele have made us all most welcome after the gigs at 2TC.
plus the fact that Lynval, Nev and Trev all go there....
