BRillant music and a packed house again! Alex was a little under the weather but gave a great show. Sylvia and Phil brilliant, what a vocal range Sylvia has, and Phil has a guitar like Midge Ure!!

Fingers Murphay and Guitar Wizzrd Steve Ripley massive appreciation for dropping in at the last minute!! Who needs British Gas!!

22nd July 2017

The Rumours, Stuart Swarbrick, John B from Warrington and guest appearance from 'Harmonica' Jack Hones.

Another packed house saw some brilliant guitar from Stuart; what a player! Brilliant comedy from the stand up virgin John B; looking forwards to a revisit latter in the year.

'Harmonica' Jack joined the Rumours on several songs for some brilliant spontaneous harmonic playing; Jack you are welcome anytime. Great performance from the Rumours featuring some covers played in a variety of styles and some home-penned new material.

22nd April 2017


Quality Lancaster beat-combo who play songs originally written in the 70s by The Meters.

The Metermen also feature the Hammond Organ wizard - Dr Fibes.

Songs by Booker T, James Brown and other Stax classics are included in the set.

The last time The Metermen played at the SVI was probably the 1st time in its history that people have got up and danced in the 'old snooker room' - a room that was previously the bastion of the Silverdale snooker elite.

Looking forwards to another fantastic night of soul and R&B classics.

David Metcalfe

Singer songwriter from Blackburn. Fantastic stories and self-penned ballads. Thoughtful, peaceful and provoking.
