There is a fantastic line up rallying around in support of the Ku Bar playing online live tonight from 6pm. Top of the bill is Frank Turner whose pre lockdown tour played to full houses including The Empire. What a scoop.

Ku Bar has been long been one of the mainstays of the local live music scene and a big part of the annual multi Stockton Calling. Please allow yourself to be entertained and donate to ensure the survival of this Teesside institution.

Please do drop in and donate tonight - for the sake of all live venues. 7.30pm
the event is a joint fundraiser for NHS and #saveourvenues campaign set up by The Music Venues Trust to help the UK’s grass roots music venues currently under threat of closure.

Amazing to get hold of Frank Turner, yet how typical of the man. Just the week before lockdown I was part of a crowd in a sold out The Empire where everyone seemed to singing along with every word. It was an inspirational show that will provided happy memories for so many in these isolation days.

Ku Home Calling Festival kicks off at 7.30pm. What a line up brought into your own home.

Also on the bill is John McClure of Reverend and the Makers, a big supporter of the Ku and local festivals. Almost an ever present, you might say. Ditto Mark Morriss of the Bluetones, who has wooed so many at venues in this area. Even once playing in Stockton High Street.

There is Jake Fletcher, formerly of Manchester bands Gramotones and Cupids and now cutting a dash with his solo material. Fran from Red Rum Club, one of the stand outs from last year's Stockton Calling and Twisterella. There is local singer songwriter Joe Ramsey and the talented Evans brothers are hosting.

All this and you don't even need to go any place. Just sit back tune in. Be entertained and perhaps make a donation. Make a difference.
