There’s no doubting that The Stag & Hunter Hotel in Mayfield have well and truly staked their claim as Newcastle’s home of original music. But we know there’s still a few of you out there who’ve not had the chance to catch a gig there. Here’s what you’re missing out on.
Tonight's Sunday acoustic sounds are mesmerising, Jason Lowe's voice is spellbinding. @jasonlowemusic @newcastlemirage @mynewcastle #livemusic #welovelivemusic #liveandoriginal #acoustic #blues

Last weekend’s Sunday acoustic session featured the one and only, Jason Lowe. He delivered a mesmerising performance that had the front bar crowd in the palm of his hand.

Blues with so much swagger you have to wear shades. Make sure you catch these guys when they hit The Stag next.

Talk about going off! These guys rocked the front room harder than we could have ever imagined. Great vocal hooks, solid guitar sounds, and it was loud, just like we like it!
The Lachy Doley Group
A little taste of what you may (or may not) have missed tonight. The Lachy Doley Group. Some real class. #thestag #livemusic #lachydoley @newcastlemirage @newcastlelive @thenewcastlegigguide @lachydoley

It’s rare to see and organ played like this [inset dick joke here]. Playing like he’s possessed, and riffing on those keys like they were guitar strings. Such a great show.
Annie O’Dee & The Hotshots
Annie O'Dee & The Hotshots … keeping the vibe alive tonight. #thestag #livemusic #killer @annieodee @newcastlemirage @thenewcastlegigguide @newcastlelive

Annie O’Dee is well loved and admired in the local industry and for good reason. She’s powerful, intense and owns every inch of the stage she works. Don’t miss her next time she plays the stag.
COMING UP AT THE STAG
So now we’ve wet your whistle, it’s time to make plans to head to The Stag for some live original music. If you haven’t been to The Stag, we urge you to support venues that support live music!
