Mike Hall and Dave Robson from well known local band After Midnight will be taking time off from their Classic Clapton UK Tour to perform a rare acoustic set at The Diamond Inn, Main Street, Ponteland on Saturday 1st December. Their first set will begin at approx 8.30pm. Admission free. More information from venue Tel: 01661 872898.
The band has a huge following on Tyneside. This is their first ever appearance at The Diamond Inn.
Mike is the guitar/vocalist/front-man of After Midnight. It has been said that he not only looks like Eric Clapton, he sings and plays guitar like him too! Bass player Dave Robson was originally a member of the band during the 1990’s. He re-joined last year. He is also a talented keyboards player and song-writer and he is a former member of north east chart band Geordie. In fact he was with them at the time Brian Johnson left to join AC/DC.
It is very rare for After Midnight to perform at pub venues these days. At The Diamond Inn Mike & Dave will perform music by The Eagles, The Beatles, REM, Crowded House and a number of 60’s and 70’s classics. They will even include at least one of Dave’s original compositions. NB: this will NOT be an Eric Clapton Tribute Gig.
