Friday June 9, 2023: Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend
The Committee has decided that there will be NO BAND on this night.
Being a long weekend, many people go away, including band members, and as less people come to the Guild on the Friday of a long weekend, it is not financially viable to run a band on this night.

Rattlincane last played for us in March of this year and it is good to have them back playing for us again.
They have released 6 albums and are in the final production stages of a new album.
