Gigs

TomHarrison4tet

All evening gigs unless stated otherwise – if you need more info, drop me a line, or Google the venue. (Often I don’t know the exact timings until nearer the date in question.) All these gigs are public performance events that you don’t need an invite for; no private function events appear on this list. If it’s happening in a restaurant, it’ll say so, and if I know the admission price I’ll post it – but I don’t always. Again, check with venues to be sure.
