Real Time Music


I've just upgraded to Faith Guitars ® Official

This is by far one of the best guitars i have ever played, even better than some Taylor and Martin guitars. Really happy with this. Can't wait to try it out on the road.

Big thank you to Tony at Real Time Music for his excellent customer service and salesmanship! Good to see you again too
Hope you've all had a beautiful christmas!

In response to recent rumours, Real Time Live is definitely still open and will be back to regular shows from Saturday the 23rd of September. We offer our most sincere apologies for the lack of communication and the cancellation of various shows over the past few months. This was due to personal reasons which briefly put operations on hold, out of our control.

With the exception of Sounds of Seattle (16th Sept), Blondied (4th Oct) and Arizona (7th Oct), ALL scheduled shows are going ahead. Tickets already purchased are still valid, and tickets for all these events can be purchased via the Real Time Live website as normal.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you soon 🤘

Saturday 8th July Charity night with The LUMPS and
Riffler !!
I am John Grant originally from Sheffield, I have been a drummer for over 50yrs now and still going with my current band RIFFLER who have been around for 15 yrs.
My first gig was at the YMACA in Sheffield with my beloved friend Graham Madin sadly he is no longer with us, it was the most frightening experience I have ever encountered.
Then onto performing with Sheffield's own Joe Cocker at the Pheasant Pub Sheffield lane top, I got the taste for more to which over the years I have had the privilege of performing with so many great guys and bands from all over, and I don’t regret a single late night.
I have decided to put on a Charity event, one to celebrate 15 years with my band RIFFLER and still going, with this event I have nominated the Charity, Chilterns MS Centre.
The reason for this is that more many years I have worked alongside a good friend of mine who is called James Iyenger.
James is an amazing sound engineer and has worked with so many famous people and Bands from all over the world too many to mention
He has also been involved in raising MILLIONS for different charities over the years.
Unfortunately, James has contracted MS which is so sad and has caused him some problems but James being James, just gets his head down and cracks on to please everybody as usual.
James doesn’t get much help with his own Charity SO I thought it's about time WE did something for him Hence the Just 4 him.


Tonight doors 7.30 kicking off 8.30 with Alex Spacie … tickets will be available on the door 😈
