World-renowned cider house in Clifton, Bristol, famous (or infamous?) for its Exhibition cider, the Coronation Tap has rapidly earned a reputation as a venue for high-quality live music. Featuring not only the best in Bristol, such as Steve Payne, The Bones, Phil King, John Fenlon, Beth Rowley and many, many more, audiences are also treated to international artists like Guthrie Kennard (US) and Michael Pickett (Canada). And up-and-coming talent gets stage-time too!
Sadly the Prom has ceased to be a music venue of any note (no pun intended). The writing was on the wall following the sad and untimely death of the music manager Martin Moss. It's just a shame people with a genuine interest in music were not given the opportunity to take over the reins to realise its potential as a top-class Bristol music establishment. I wonder why not?
Here's a musician friend of ours with a creative talent for T-shirt design - the pioneers of rock 'n' roll, rhythm 'n' blues, rockabilly and honky tonk featured on long- or short-sleeve high quality shirts in black or white and sizes to fit all.
So, if you're in need of a cool-looking, distinctive 'tee', head on over to www.rockinjohnny.com and have a browse.
