Hi Everyone

It would appear that circumstances have conspired to get in the way of things for I, your humble narrator at this present moment.  And once more,  you are either spared/deprived another regular pre-amble from myself (depending on your particular point of view) and we can go head first into everything Rising Sun related this weekend

We have just one event this week.  It's on Friday, when we play host to the Summer edition of TRIBUTE NIGHT

Anyone who has been to a Rising Sun Tribute Night will already know the deal. Every three months we pay homage to a much-loved band or artist.  Everyone picks a song or two, practices them for a bit, then gets together again on Tribute Night to play them to a crowd - always with fascinating results. The next Tribute Night’s hero is announced at the end of the evening. It’s a simple but winning formula and is silly amounts of fun.

Join us at the 2017 summer edition of Tribute Night as we treat you to the beautiful pop songs of CAROLE KING, the most commercially successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and 61 hits that charted in the UK.

Carole King was just a teenager when she fought her way into the record industry as a songwriter and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, at the age of 17.  By the time she was 20, she was writing hits for some of the biggest names in the business, including Aretha Franklin, The Everly Brothers, Neil Sedaka, The Monkees, The Drifters and The Shirelles.  She also had a successful recording career as an artist in her own name, including the landmark album Tapestry, and her songs have been covered by numerous artists including The Beatles, Carpenters, Isaac Hayes, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor and Kylie Minogue.

We’ll be open at 8pm and as usual, there’s no charge on the door, but  we suggest you keep £5 or more aside for when the friendly people with hats circulate the room, the bar, the hallway, the porch, the little bit of pavement out the front, and the smoking pen out the back.  

That’s everything for another week, just to remind you that we are, as always, at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST (If you pop it into your satnav or Google, we shall magically appear!)
Have a nice weekend!
