I have a slot available for a band or artist to perform at a club in Wellesbourne Warwickshire UK this Sunday from 5.00pm. Gig does not pay a fortune but can lead to future gigs in the year. Up beat folk band preferred but single artist considered.

Please get back to me on my direct email by 3.00pm today.
