'Speakeasy' in the Harbour View pub at Roker, Sunderland was established by legendary Sunderland bluesman George Shovlin, and good friend, and lead guitarist in George Shovlin and the Raidars, George Lamb, in April 2014. Over the next few weeks, I will outline how Thursday nights at the Harbour View 'Speakeasy' came about, and how they are now considered to be one of the best regular live music nights in the north east of England.
I will also be posting reviews of some of the Thursday nights, which you can get to by clicking 'Reviews' at the top of this page. My review of an extra special 'Speakeasy Speciale' on 26th October, featuring Bristol duo 'The Husky Tones,' will hopefully be published by Sunday 29th October.
