DOGHOUSE CELLAR JAZZ BAR, 23 Jan 2016
The first gig of 2016 in a wonderful intimate venue in Ramsbottom, Lancashire. The venue is a 200-year old mill in the heart of industrial East Lancashire, and provides an excellent setting for live music. Owners Pat and Yvette create a great atmosphere. You'll see that some of the old iron pillars give it some character too!
