Let your shine through at pub battle

GO­ING OUT Hughie’snewsviews&re­views tal­ent C

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE - Fri­day, April 24 Satur­day, April 25 Seen a great gig? Play in a band? Please tell us about it too, at www. getwestlon­don.co.uk.

OME all ye wan­der­ing min­strels, mu­sic groups of any genre, rap­pers, soloists, in­stru­men­tal­ists etc and to­gether we will try to raise the al­ready high pro­file of Uxbridge and its sur­round­ing towns as a hot­bed of tal­ent to ri­val any other.

Yes, the Crown and Treaty public house, in Ox­ford Road, have in­formed me they are putting on a tal­ent battle that will rat­tle the now leg­endary venue to its an­cient foun­da­tions.

What­ever you do to per­form your mu­sic makes you el­i­gi­ble for a chance to win the £200 pot.

All en­trants have over a month to pre­pare be­cause the event is on May 24.

From 6pm un­til 2am, eight acts will play out a 30 to 40 minute set to be judged by a panel of Crown and Treaty staff and reg­u­lars.

All you need to do to reg­is­ter is con­tact me via Twit­ter @ HughieDixon, Face­book or email ciaobud­dha@hot­mail.com with your band de­tails and I’ll find you a slot on a first-come-first-served ba­sis and, of course, pref­er­ence will be given to acts that are based in the Lon­don bor­ough of Hilling­don.

The old cliche ‘it’s not the win­ning, it’s the tak­ing part that mat­ters’ stands true be­cause if you’re in mu­sic for money then you’re in it for the wrong rea­sons and should prob­a­bly go try your luck with X Fac­tor and the like.

The money’s just a bonus as it’ll be a fun day of var­ied Large Por­tion @ The Gen­eral Eliott, St Johns Road, Uxbridge CCN7 @ The Brook House, King­shill Av­enue, Hayes The Trem­bling Wil­bury’s (trib­ute) @ Tropic, Grosvenor Vale, Ruis­lip The New Am­bas­sadors @ The Crock of Gold, High Street, Ruis­lip The J45s @ The Black Horse, High Road, East­cote
