Hello! Finally back on my feet and full on project development continues. Thank you so much for all your continued support and good wishes. Currently working on new projects, re-visiting old, and continuing to support activities in The Markham Hall. Thank you Awards for All for helping fund our new tables.
Great to see that David Whitworth and friends - "The Back Row" are offering a splendid evening of first class vocal entertainment this weekend both at the Grimsby Minster and the Markham Hall. Do support this young and fantastic up and coming group.
Watch this space....

Snake Davis and the Steve Walker Big Swing Band 24.10.15
Markham Hall, Grimsby

Cool, hip and funky!! Steve Walker and the fabulous Big Swing Band explored new territory. This wasn't an evening of Miller etc. Or indeed a dance. Instead a wonderful refreshing reminder of how extensive a big band repertoire actually is. Whilst never forgetting the 40s sound, the Steve Walker Big Swing Band explored a whole host of unexpected popular delights. Film score, Nestico, modern pop, modern band arrangements, as well as 60s swing. And there was more. Versatility at its best.
As for Snake! He can swing, he can jazz, he does pop, and funk! All of which quite simply wows an audience with an awesome coolness and quiet!
Thank You guys for embracing the opportunity to offer a new and funky concert programme. Great night here in central Grimsby.

200 likes! Thank you to you all. Not the easiest project I've ever undertaken, but wonderful to know that I have your interest and support.

Thank you to all the musicians, actors and artists who have already joined us at our Markham Hall venue.

I would, however, like to say my biggest 'thank you' to our audiences. Without your support live music and arts events would be lost.

Our very best wishes to you all.
Sue Hampson, The Madhouse GY and St. James' School, Bargate, Grimsby.

Yet another top musician coming very soon to Madhouse GY. The Shannon Reilly Trio are not bad either!!!!

He has played with and backed a diverse range of musicians that include Digby Fairweather, Jim Mullen, Bruce Adams, Alan Barnes, The Drifters and 5th Dimension and has opened for James Brown.

John Etheridge Trio with Vimala Rowe
25 July 2015

"Effortless, passionate and captivating".....One look at the Vimala Rowe website confirms exactly what you are to expect. But there is one word missing.... "Warmth". And warmth just oozes from Vimala the singer and Vimala the person. Vimala sings with a seductive passionate empathy, with an equally unbelievable ease. The artistic physical hand gestures just add to the musicality. This was Jazz fit for any city venue!!

Mr John Etheridge! What a top guy, and such a brilliant guitarist. Great sound, great virtuoso skills and a real cool dude!!
One of those musicians that can, quite simply, communicate their utter passion and devotion to music and musical exploration. A privilege to welcome John to the Markham Hall.

Thank you Gill Wilde and Grimsby Jazz for such a top gig here at Madhouse GY. Fantastic night. We very much hope that this will be the first of many.
