Diary Dates and MCs

Each night at the club a different person hosts the evening, and they set their individual stamp on proceedings.  They are there to facilitate the evening, welcome you if you are a visitor and make sure everyone gets a chance to sing and play in a supportive, friendly atmosphere.
