Keighley Blues Club is based at the Penningtons Octagon Live, which is a 360 capacity venue. It’s run by volunteers who have a love for the “Blues” music and all its glory. They come together just because they love to play.
The Blues Club is a great place for new artists to be seen and known, they are always looking for great new artists for both support and headlines. The artists to appear in the club, over the years, have gone on to make the club well established internationally.
It was on March 11, 2005, when the Spikedrivers and the support act Blues Breakdown opened the Keighley Blues Club with a bang, by being the first band to play at the clubs first venue. The venue was at St. Anne’s Catholic Social Center under the name “Spectrum Blues”.
The Octagon Live caters for all with a number of facilities, its a very large open car park, plus offers free off road parking, two restaurants, a Premier Inn, and has great pub/restaurants allocated close by for families to enjoy a few drinks before they take in a show.
Over the years, the club has hosted many great blues events and a number of bands who have been around since the 60s and still perform. You can’t beat a good band covering a great electric vibe with their own heartfelt sound. At the club, you will learn what it feels like to take in real emotions and listen to real stories being sung.
If you wish to take a look at Keighley itself, you will find lots of other things to see and sites to take in.
