      According to Blakey folklore he tried to get a gig here in the ealy 70's when Back Door played here every week, but couldn't. Apparently he then started doing some part time work here and eventually was given the opportunity of performing and was amazing. When Back Door were signed to Warner Brothers and went off to tour the world, Sting's band "Last Exit" were then given the vacant weekly slot and they travelled from Newcastle to play here every Tueaday night.
