Subject: RE: Whitby 2015 - best places.
Firstly Richard how many of your daughters fiends are in the band. There are not many venues that can accommodate a fully set up band AND the influx of people that folk week brings. I.E If I were a landlord would I want X amount of floor space taken up with equipment or would I want drinkers in that space.
Secondly there are not many venue managers(landlords etc) that would accept that one group of people I.E your band could "hog" the music for an hour, session, day, week (delete as applicable)
Thirdly I have not heard your band and even if they are excellent I, as a punter, would feel disinclined to welcome them in the bar I tend to drink in if they thought they could hold court for an afternoon. The beauty of that bar, and most others, is the variety of performers and styles. Occasionally, over the years, small groups or bands have tried to monopolise certain venues. By and large they are very much frowned upon.
All that being said, Good Luck, I hope you have a great time next year.
