Rustlers CMCWe have recieved the following from Vince Keeler.

Hi Maggie & Mick,
Please could you put up on your website that it is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that December 16th 2017 will be The Rustlers C.M.C. very last night.

After much deliberation we will be closing our club after some 30+ years we have had a great time running the club and will be sad to say goodbye to all our regular supporters but due to financial difficulties and health issues with my father and co founder of the club we feel we have no choice but to call time on the club.

We hope everyone will come and support us on our last night with Martin Jaye on December 16th and have a great farewell night for the club.

Many thanks Vince

Following the untimely death of Dean Barnes, we understand that Ray will be continuing as a solo.
The band steel player Dave, was planning to leave the band and re-join the Henry Smith Band, so  the Ray Peters Band is temporarily disbanded.

Ray tells us that the plan is to re-form the band with new players, and as and when these plans firm up, we hope to bring news.

We have today recieved a phone call from Frank Powers (organiser Golden Star CMC) asking us to remove all reference to the club from our site.

We had previously been asked to add the details by a representive of Chatham Suburban club, and accordingly, the information was published.

However, Frank tells us that he is now a member of the Chatham Suburban Club committee and they agree that they do not want to have their events published on this site.

Although we find it difficut to understand why anyone would not want free publicity for their events, we will respect their wishes.

Therefore, it is reluctance, we have removed all reference to The Golden Staer CMC from this site

Due to ill health, the Best of British will (for the time being) be run by the support team.

Details of the revised contact numbers can be found on the Best of British web site.

We are pleased to announce the start of a new Country Music Venue.

The Chatham Suburban Club will be holding Country & Western evenings on the 4th Wednesday each month at their premises in Wyles Road, Chatham (see details)

The music will be from 8 - 11pm, but the Club is open before this.

The entrance fee for the C & W nights is £3 for non club members (£1 for Suburban club members) the times and entrance fee will be the same for all the C & W nights. 

We are told that The Country Sounds Country Music Club at Faversham has now closed.
The ill-health of its principle organisers has forced this decision on them.

We wish them all the best and hope to see them in the future as guests at some of the other clubs.
