Over the last couple of years I've been privileged to help promote Big Marquee Weekends I and II at Mary Pat's Bar in Macosquin.
Both have been magnificent for all sorts of reasons. Extremely well-organised, affordable including normal bar prices, top notch facilities and a warm, friendly atmosphere.
But, in the end, it's the quality of the acts that make such events sink or succeed. And only the best have been invited to perform on the Big Marquee stage.
Which brings me to my piece of early Christmas cheer.
Roll With It are Ireland's biggest and best Oasis tribute band. And, yes, they are MADFERIT.
THIS was them at Big Marquee Weekend I last year.
They were back for the second coming in May and, if anything, were even better.
And they are going places. So much so that, on the 28th of this month, they are well on-course to fill the 900-capacity Limelight 1 in Belfast, an iconic venue that will forever hold a special place in the heart of Noel Gallagher himself - as you can read HERE.
Which brings me to an equally special gig planned for two nights later.
As a favour to Robert Todd and the team behind Big Marquee Weekend, the Belfast boys have agreed to play an intimate show in the lounge of Marypat's.
Supported by excellent local singer/songwriter Adam Buick, just 120 tickets have been made available priced at just £6. And less than 30 are left.
To get yours, call into the bar or give them a ring on Tel: 028703 44659. And you'd better do it soon. Because you're not getting mine.
