Apart from our regular Tuesday night sessions at our ‘ home base ‘ , The Grosvenor Hotel in Robin Hood’s Bay , we do not appear very often in the Whitby area . Of course , as most of you know , for many years now we have performed an annual benefit gig for the Whitby RNLI and as I have reported in the past , very successful these affairs always are . We are not doing the gig this year due to another event being organised by the indefatigable Graham and Ann Holmes who do so much for the RNLI .However I’m delighted to remind you that Steve and the Diamonds are appearing twice in a week in the Whitby area . First , we are appearing at the very popular MUSICPORT the award winning annual world music festival held in Whitby . This is on Saturday the 18th of October and should be a really good night ! The following Friday ( 24th ) we are playing a benefit gig for the GREAT NORTH AIR AMBULANCE . There will also be guests appearing during the evening and the night will be compered by our good friend Jimmy Lupton . This is taking place in the SALMON LEAP in Sleights and I’m sure you’ll agree , for a very worthy cause .( Ring Brian on 01947 811447 to reserve tickets) We look forward to seeing you at one ( or both ! ) of these gigs .
