Looking forward to the opening gig of Katiesfest 2015 here at Katie Fitzgerald's on Friday May 1st. Yes its Mayday get down to the Marquee and Cellar bar for the wonderful sounds of Bigger Than Seattle with support from the fabulous Gav and Emilie. Admission £3.00 all proceeds to Stourbridge Foundation4music BIGGER THAN SEATTLE 'Cherish this' is beautiful. What a cocophony of joy and sex. Lead guitar, voice, vibe, the whole band is life it's self. NICE! Luke Concannon [Nizlopi] 'Their fresh funky take on modern day indie-pop is guaranteed to get your feet shuffling, perfect melodies and poignant lyrics are the key to their success'. Chris Johnson Presents 'Clearly influenced by Jeff Buckley but respectfully done, with a nice clean guitar motif underpinning the whole piece' (Jellybean) King Dave Records 'I can see these guys going on to do great things in the not so distant future, they’re exactly what the scene wants at the moment; a new modern take on a much loved classic style. They’re young, they’re fresh and they’re so full of feeling and potential.' Black Velvet "A deep 1990's sound for the 21st century. Could well be a big hit with radio stations." ERF Music Our latest single: https://soundcloud.com/bigger…/bigger-than-seattle-when-were

***BREAKING NEWS*** We are really looking forward to Black Country Day next Tuesday here at Katie Fitzgerald's . We have some fantastic artists lined up for a night of Comedy and music in the marquee, plus our wonderful quiz will be happening in the upstairs bar . Even more exciting......... We will be launching our very own Beer!!! This will be the first in several historic ales with connections to our pub and local history. "The Stourbridge Lion" at 3.8% is a tribute to our predecessor Marnie Costello, who was instrumental in establishing the pub as a place for live music some 25 years ago, under the name of The Stourbridge Lion . In the early 1800's the workers at Foster and Rastricks historic foundry where the Stourbridge Lion was built would undoubtedly have walked across the fields to what was then the 'Golden Lion' and is now Katie Fitzgerald's. Why not come and join us at our launch on Tuesday 14th July, Black Country Day, for a pint or two of our delicious new ale...... Also look out for our new website which will be launching in August with many new features and some fantastic offers. Katie Fitzgerald's

NEXT SUNDAY AT KATIE'S FROM 12.00 FOOD AVAILABLE ALL DAY Lots of animal organisations coming together to raise funds and awareness This is the first time anything like this has been done on this scale in Stourbridge so we are very excited. *Don't forget, there will be details of FREE cat spay/neuter vouchers being given out at this event for people within the DY1 to DY9 postcodes.* This is to promote the importance of neutering and to encourage more people to neuter their cats to prevent so many unwanted litters. A massive thank you to the RSPCA Stourbridge Branch for agreeing to do this!! They are a small voluntary run branch, completely separate from the National RSPCA, so this is a big cost for them as they have to do all of their own fundraising within the area. Thank you!!
Next week we start a new guest spot at Katies open mic night. 10th Aug we have Sion Southall-Chopra , the 17th Sunjay , 23rd Aug Oscar bell and the 31st we have Ian Sutherland . If you are interested in a half hour guest spot or just taking part in the open mic please contact us on facebook.
