LANKYKATS - Roll-up 'n Rock On
WHAT'S HAPPENING AT LANKYKATS?

Rockin for Charities & Worthy Causes

To be a Lankykat is to love live rock 'n roll in all its shapes and sizes. We to play every two weeks in an ambient setting which is intimately comfortable, warm and welcoming to suit both the musicians and audience alike. In addition, the venue must have good transport links close to the M6.. so we chose the M6 Junction 27 - Standish - so you'll find The Standish Unity Club decidedly friendly and ideal for the Lankykats musical cause.

The stage has a backline of top-notch bass and lead amplifiers, a pro-drum kit and up to four microphones, so there'll be no need to bring your own gear - just your own guitar or a snare drum and a pair of sticks will do. Sound will be controlled for you by our professional engineer Diane Herring - so you can relax and get on with the business of playing some good ole' rock 'n roll for your appreciative audience.

Both individual players and full bands are more than welcome to play. On arrival an entrance fee of £1 will be due by all - including the musicians - then just ask and say you want to play, if not, just find a seat and get yourself a drink at the bar and just settle-in for some lively action.

If you're playing, you'll then be given some advisory guidance and then an agreed time slot. You must be on time for your set and smart off the mark too, by plugging-in within the bands change-over time of ten minutes or so - and away you go. You'll have around thirty minutes+ maximum playing time so at the end of your set you'll be called and given one more song to play.

Please adopt a keen professional approach to a Lankykats performance. You are first and foremost entertainers in this business - so entertain. Please tune your guitars off-stage and in good time - in the dressing room - before accessing the stage. Quick and slick is the name of the game. Your audience will appreciate this and the respect you give them by doing so.

A strict dress code too is not a major issue. But please remember when you play we are all Lankykats for the night – we need to make good, long lasting impressions and – you never know who that unknown face in the audience might be! Any suggestions to make positive improvements to the evening are more than welcome from you all.

You could incidently, find yourself playing twice or more on the same night - that's if you want to! We at Lankykats encourage 'scratch' bands of 'unattached' muso's and jamming is highly desirable too - particularly at the end of the night.

We are now looking forward to playing and having many a fab night out which will be coming up on most Thursday evenings - please look-out carefully for the Lankykats meetings dates - and come along and be well prepared for some long-lasting rock 'n roll fun.. See you there..

I payed a visit to the Lankykats at Standish Unity Club, they were celebrating 3 years in existance along with the 50th aniversary of the Beatles only performance in Wigan. A number of the audience were actualy at the said perfomance. The entertainment consisted of 5 bands from around Lancashire paying homage to the Beatles and other early 60s groups and singers. Most of the bands members were playing during the 60s. A lot of the audience like myself had played in groups at that time, it was a rocking good night enjoyed by like minded people.

Yes Dave, though a little noisy being in a small room that holds about 150 and some enthusiastic drumers. They hold a couple of nights a month on the 1st and 3rd Thursday. Take a look on their web site its intresting and may bring back old memories.
