    CLASSIC ROCK DOUBLE HEADER (HEART & SCORPIONS)
    April 2015

    Good Afternoon Zoe,

    It was a brilliant night, just my sort of venue and two great bands.

    My wife and I were almost the first to arrive and interacted with staff and others alike; all incredibly polite and friendly and a pool table to boot. (The only mishap was the lady behind the bar who, while immensely warm and bubbly, doesn’t know that a (bread) roll is pronounced “roll” not “cob”!)

    A great night all round, great venue – pity you are so far away from us but definitely worth the effort (is there a recommended reasonable hotel nearby for the future?)

    Kind Regards

    THE SMITHS LTD plus special guests POLLEN
    April 2015

    Hello Zoe, thank you for sending the Smiths Ltd gig photos and song list. I live in Stafford and while I have heard of the Roadhouse, I have never previously been there.

    I was immediately impressed by the general friendliness of staff and patrons. I liked the layout and the sensibly priced drinks. The main room was well set out with good sound and lighting rig.

    Listened to Pollen and while I am not a big fan of screamo vocals (I'm 48!!!), the lead singer / bassist had a good presence. I hope they develop their style and sound and have success in the future.

    The Smiths Ltd were absolute quality with a fantastic vocal and instrumental sound and the lead singer was very close to Morrissey. And to knock out just under 30 tracks without a break takes some doing. Will definitely see them again.

    As for the Roadhouse, I will come again before too long. You have a great little venue with lots going for it and you cater for all music as well as comedy. Keep going as I know it is hard for music venues to survive these days. Thank you for a fantastic evening.

    Regards,

    Adam

    I have seen U2UK at your place three times now and they were superb. Your venue is terrific, we do keep meaning to come and see other acts and I am sure we will. As for feedback I can only compliment you and say keep up the great work. The acts you get are great and love your support of local acts. Lol hope that helps or at least gives you a pat on the back.

    LENE LOVICH BAND and guests VIX & HER MSCHIEFS
    March 2015

    Hi Zoe

    First time at the venue, to see Lene Lovich. Really liked the bar area and prices. Nice space to 'hang out' before the acts. Staff all friendly. Everywhere, including toilets clean. Main room, a lovely space with plenty of atmosphere , sound good, not claustrophobic. Lene Lovich was great. I will definitely come again.

    Cheers

    Hi Zoe
    Thank you for a great evening.
    Fantastic and friendly venue can’t believe that I have not been before.
    I shall recommend it to my friends and will return.
    Lizzie & the Banshees were brilliant I had my doubts that anyone could cover SATB but they pulled it off( I was transported back to ’82) wonderful the hear that much underrated music live again.
    Regards

    LIZZIE & THE BANSHEES plus special guests ROTUNDA and EASTFIELD
    February 2015

    Hi Zoe;
    Thanks a million for a night I will never forget at The Roadhouse !
    All the bands were fantastic, the sound impeccable and the atmosphere magical.
    Dunno if you saw me singing with Rotunda but currently on Facebook somewhere if
    you didn't - maximum fun for me.
    Everyone, bands and mates, dead impressed with the place and the way you run things.
    Your bar lady was fantastic (as always) and the security guy was a real diamond. About 50 friends and family came in the end, and combined with the punk regulars it made for a great atmosphere. Lizzie and the Banshees were amazing - totally authentic.
    Hopefully bump into at the Scopyons in a coupla weeks.
    Best wishes and a thousand thanks.
    Swag x

    Thank you so much for this evening, we had an amazing time and we hope that everybody else did too! Thanks for having us :)

    Also, we have to say, in a sea of promoters and venues that ultimately do not care, you absolutely smash it, and you are rare!

    Cheers,

    TREVOR BURTON CHRISTMAS SHOW plus Special Guests Mods & Sods // Suzi & The Backbeats
    December 2014

    Zoe
    You asked for feedback - so just thought I'd say how much we enjoyed the Trevor Burton gig last night. It was my fist visit to The Roadhouse - so here are my thoughts:

    * Venue - good decor, pleasant atmosphere, good crowd
    * Staff - friendly and helpful throughout. (Special thanks to the barman in the smaller bar who quickly worked out that our round consisted of 4 pints of Hobgoblin on a regular basis)
    * Stage and sound - maybe the stage could be bigger but visibility was good and sound quality was excellent
    * Music - brilliant
    * Ale - well kept ale in a live music venue ... Very welcome

    Only negative - a long way from where I live in the East Midlands!

    Many thanks for a great night - we'll be back

    ROXY MAGIC AT THE ROADHOUSE
    December 2014

    Came to the Roadhouse again last night to see 'Roxy Magic'. Yet again they delivered an immaculate set to a full house. I have to say that the Roadhouse remains one of our favourite music venues. Good bars, realistic prices and fast service from friendly bar staff. The sound is always good and the crowds are always good natured and pleasant. We had another great night at the Roadhouse! Thank-you.

  • FOOD FIGHTERZ and guest GEORGE WILSON
    May 2015

    Just wanted to say what a great venue and fantastic music This is the second time that we've attended an event and both times we were not disappointed. In fact we also have tickets for another event in June.

    Having lived in Birmingham all our lives we have only recently discovered Road House and now plan to be regular visitors. Birmingham's hidden gem.

    Thanks for a great night

    Regards

  • Oasis Experience
    May 2015

    Thank you for another great night at The Road House. Whatever your musical tastes you can not beat live music. I would recommend anyone looking for a night out in Birmingham to pay a visit.

    As well as the main artists being fantastic value for money, so are the support acts. We would highly recommend The River Chickens, George Wilson and Novacaine.

    A big thank you to all the team. The staff are really efficient, down the the young lad collecting the glasses all night. He did a sterling job. And I have to mention Julie behind the bar. It was our third visit last night and she remembers us and even our drinks. ! Its that little touch that really makes a difference

    Thank you once again. Shall be seeing you very soon ( thanks for the tip Julie to get there early for the AC/DC tribute band).

    Regards Helen and Rob
