NIgel Kennedy at Whiski Bar - 13 Jan 2012
What a night this has been – the worlds best selling violinist Nigel Kennedy sold out the Usher Hall on 12th Jan 2012 as part of his UK tour and tonight he joined our resident band and played live in WHISKI Bar last night 13th Jan 2012!!
His whole entourage of friends and crew came in for a meal and then got a fiddle out and joinedin with our band, The Gorms. Truly electric was the atmosphere in WHISKI last night.
A riot of fiddles is no stranger here as Scottish foot stomping music is our speciality and every night of the week all year round there is lots of toe tapping fabulous bands on here but with Nigel Kennedy playing live with us tonight it was a magic experience for everyone in the bar. Two of his band also played live afterwards making this a Friday to remember. He was a lovely guy and stayed till the very end enjoying the atmosphere and chatting.
We have the vidoe of Nigel kennedy playing live at WHISKI bar and watch this space and we will upload it later today…
Sorry – our video turn upside down and we are working on sorting it out and weillget it up as soon as we can
but here is another one we found of that night

We are hosting the BARCABEAT R&B FESTIVAL during August this year, sponsored by Bulliet Bourbon. The BARCABEAT Festival features NICK JOHNSON & BLUEFINGER. Nick is the face of BLUEFINGER, and we were such big fans of BLUEFINGER when we were students and they are such a well known band with a great loyal following.
They have already played two gigs at the bar and as usual they went down a storm, we are really looking foward to all their gigs this time round as this may be the last chance there is to see BLUEFINGER play live again – why, you may ask? Well,Nick is retiring BLUEFINGER as he lives normally in Spain and all the travelling is getting too much so BLUEFINGER will be no more, we were sad to here this news but wish Nick and Ed all the very best and just glad to have you guys playing at WHISKI and making the place rock, as usual.
Here are all the gigs they will be playing at WHISKI during August and there will be different guests with Nick on many of the nights including other events and promotions such as whisky tastings etc during the whole month of August.
