                      Review of Laurence Jones Band

                      Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

                      Excellent venue and a double bill of two awesome bands. Both Laurence Jones and support from Rainbreakers was outstanding. We travelled to the venue from Glasgow as both bands are high on our list of favourites.
                      One complaint would be the signage relating to "vaping" It's apparently not permitted. Signage stated that we had to "vape" in the smoking area. I gave up smoking 6 years ago and was forced to stand beside the exact thing I have stopped doing. Vaping is NOT smoking and is permitted in many venues elsewhere. The O2 ABC in Glasgow actually encourage it with free e cigs often issued at the bar. I suggest they review their policy.

                      Great gig! Music was outstanding. Enjoyed the addition of keyboards! Laurence is a superb guitarist. If you haven't seen Laurence Jones you should.

                      Overall rating: 5 Verified review

                      This was my first time at this venue and I was impressed by the helpfulness of the staff and the general ambiance. The sound in the hall was excellent, clear and of a high quality and the volume just right. Martin's playing was wonderful to hear and his tales between the songs enhanced the whole experience. A really good night.
