After the long period of closure bought on by the Covid-19 lockdown, the legendary Robin venue in Bilston is open for business again and is firing on all six.
Ken Slater, the prog promotor for the club, has lined up an excellent array of prog shows in the club’s gig guide that has already begun and stretches well into 2022, featuring a host of major prog talent including Spock's Beard, LIndisfarne, Robin Trower, Gong, Ozric Tentacles, Curved Air, Lifesigns, Pendragon and loads more...
One of the regular features at the club is Ken’s ‘Prog Sunday at the Robin All-Dayer' events. The first was covered by Prog Magazine and the six band review by Stephen Lambe pointed out the excellent organisation for the event, praising the sound crew, that ran on-time with good sound quality.
Ken tells us that there is an early July All-Dayer in production and a December, Christmas All-Dayer which will be a special co-headlined event, the billing for which is very near completion.
