Queens Head, High Street | 7th & 21st September 2017, from 9.30pm (1st & 3rd Thursday every month)

This open-mic ‘Royal Rock Night’ is now a firm favourite on the live music scene in Buxton.  Literally anything goes and it’s the unexpected that makes this night so much fun. We saw some familiar faces from the live music circuit but another band we’d never seen giving it the full on thrash metal treatment.  Loud, head-banging great fun in a super duper venue.

Every other Thursday night, run by local musician and music teacher Kenny Robertson, this fast becoming popular open mic always attracts some pretty talented folk and makes for a great mid week music feast. Get there early to secure one of those squishy sofas.

9 piece collective of musicians who got together through their love of Ska & 2 tone who always pack the crowds in when they play at the Queens. Playing cuts spanning the early years – into the late 70’s early 80s 2 tone era. Definitely a favourite on the live music circuit in Buxton.
