THE 10th birthday celebrations at Debees music bar will continue when indie favourites The Levellers hit Winsford on Sunday.
Tickets for the acoustic gig are sold out, a fact owner Damon Horrill claims pays testament to the bar’s growing popularity and credibility as a serious venue for live music.
Damon said: “400 tickets have been snapped up by people from all over the country, many of whom had never heard of Winsford.
“This is a big week, the culmination of a lot of work over a number of years. The Levellers appearance is one of only five dates nationwide as part of the Drunk In Public tour, and we are the only North West date.”
And after a successful first 10 years Damon has no plans to rest on his laurels, and wants to build on Debees’ burgeoning reputation.
He said: “We’ve developed relationships over the years that result in some incredible moments. Many years of work has helped create an excellent stage, auditorium, and reputation both in the music industry and on the comedy circuit.
“The musicians who’ve played here over the years love Debees. They love the respect the audience has for the music and they love the way they are looked after.
“The best don’t have to come to Winsford to perform - there are plenty of ‘prestigious’ venues in the big cities - they want to come and play.”
Popular tribute act The Complete Stone Roses are appearing tomorrow night as part of a national organised by music magazine NME, and tickets are still available.
