Southport Rock Night at the Floral Hall

THE hopes of a large turn out for the Floral Hall Rock Night on Saturday 4 March 2006 were dashed as the bad weather brought havoc across the region. The line up was The Benz, The Last Stand, The Icons and Wayne Carrick Band. Despite the disappointing, lower than expected turn out, owing to the weather, the bands and all who went along had a fantastic night and our hats off to the two organisers, James Roberts and Josh Yell, who both put on a fantastic show. Both of them, still in their early 20’s, provided a professional and well run night. We look forward to seeing more events being organised by these two lads in the near future. We must not forget the bands, who also need praise, for again keeping the audience happy, playing hard on stage, and also putting up with my bad jokes about the weather.
