Leading Lake Macquarie venue Warners At The Bay have made the decision to introduce live solo performers on Thursday nights, replacing karaoke.
The venue is a long time supporter of live music, hosting some of Newcastle’s finest acts such as The Rumour, Incognito, Love That Hat, DV8 and Funkapedia on Friday and Saturday nights, with the occasional Sunday gig from 24 Strings.
The decision to introduce live music on Thursday nights is a welcome one for the industry that has been affected over recent years by many things, including onerous licensing restrictions to combat anti-social behaviour and a lack of legislative protection for hotels against newcomer neighbours complaining about noise.
Warners At The Bay will start the new Thursdays in June with the line up featuring:
Thursday June 5: Ryan Daley
Thursday June 12: Kylie Jane
Thursday June 19: Dave Carter
Thursday June 26: Holly Wilson
We at Newcastle Live love the decision. If your Thursday nights are bland, get along to see these guys at Warners At The Bay in Hillsborough Road.
If it's on in Newcastle, it's on Newcastle Live
