We decided to go to the Cavern for the open mic night. Despite it being run by Ian Prowse I’ve never been. So got to the Cavern and after the first drink I realised we were in the wrong one, doh. So headed over to the Cavern pub. On Monday night it’s open mic night where the only rule is “no covers, original material only”. Anyone can get up be it musician, comedian, magician, etc. So we walked in and there was a band on just finishing. Next up was an American guy who could play but hadn’t got the vocals. The artist are allowed three songs, this is decided by the length of the queue of those wanting to have a go. The acts were not restricted to locals with people from the States, Canada and the Czech republic all having a go. Just before she came on Ian came over to tell us we would love this young woman who was up next. She was local and a poet and yes she was brilliant. She did two poems and you could hear a pin drop. I didn’t get her name I will next time I see Ian. Another good guy was a young guy from Walton (Liverpool) called Sam Cook, any relation? We had to leave to get the last train but we witnessed some real talent. Another was a band from Canada who had a great Rolling Stones feel to them and the could play. It was a real good night but I’ve suffered this morning. My last memory is Prowsie and I debating whether to go see Springsteen on Broadway or visit our mate in Spain.
Glad the night went well Keith
Too well, SWMBO loved it, especially the Cavern club.
The old Cavern was a right dump.
