Another Saturday, another solo artist. Aimee was fab last night, she enjoyed our famous hospitality and we enjoyed her. Another busy day yesterday because of the Lions game and another big shout-out to the bar staff who did a sterling job yet again under pressure. Hopefully, in 2 weeks' time, we can return to some sort of normality. Thank you again to all our regulars and patrons for a wonderful night.

This Saturday, we have doubled up to a duo. Chucked Together are a fabulous duo and play all the classics our patrons like. If you remember, they kicked off the flood appeal last March. πŸ‘πŸ‰

[07/03/21]   Unfortunately our artist tonight has had to cancel. Having spoken to the committee, we have decided to let this week ride as opposed to booking a replacement, partly because of the rugby and some game that England are involved in, as they've kept that quiet. So we will have music on in the background and usual great atmosphere. πŸ‘

Soul Gold - Jeff Grainger - Mini Showreel

A short video of Jeff Grainger, Soul Gold last night. I know I keep saying it, but the bar staff was on point again last night, thank you girls!! Thank you again to Mike and Gummy for overseeing the day in a professional manner. And to you our patrons, who have now figured out table dancing. See you next week for another great night.

[06/13/21]   What a fab night last night, Katie Mittel was wowing our patrons with humour and songs, she was amazing, the bar staff were under pressure all night with table service but delivered as usual, thanks girls!! πŸ’–And Gummy kept a tight ship again. I think we may have to buy fluorescent wands for the tables so you can wave when you want a drink. I for one, totally understand the urge to dance and its tragic to see believe me, but it is what it is currently. It was nice to get back on an old school analogue desk and stand on top of the stairs where I belong, but for one night only. Good to see Scott Dickenson too. It was also nice to walk home in my sliders on a lovely night for a change. Back next Sat with the amazing 'Big Guy' πŸ‘

Sara Ashley Davies Showreel

It's been a long time since any sort of music has been played here. Sara was the first artist to play, also after a long layoff. It has also been a long time since I have done a showreel. Bands and artists you are bloody spoilt! Headphones on, change settings to HD.

[06/05/21]   We would like to wish all the licenced premises in the village - Ystrad Sports & Social Club, Scoobys and The Greenfield, all the success over the coming months🀟. It's been a hard slog over the past year, so lets keep the village alive!

Club 5 year anniversary weekend!
I packed this away last year. Well, its a start, all ready for the summer of solos minus the PA which will be out of storage ready for the Autumn. So solo artists bring your own gear with lots of the usual mega echo/reverb button. 😁

[05/28/21]   With yesterday's announcement about live music, bands, artists and ourselves are quite excited. The build up and explosion of relief is like someone coming out of celibate abstinence after seeing some muso pages over the past 24 hours. But wait, lets hope its not premature so and so, because risk assessments need to be carried out by RCT before granting permission. So if you are a tiny pub where artists play under the dart board or by the pool table next door to the toilet in the corner, then this may be more difficult. However, having said all that, we may get further guidance today. Once the green light is given, then I for one can't wait as I have added so much stuff to our set up, I cant wait to get on it.πŸ₯‚πŸ‘

[05/26/21]   NOTICE: The club tote draw will be back up and running next Wednesday. Tickets on sale now through the usual channels including club.🀞

[05/23/21]   Last night went smoothly, so thank you for your cooperation, we understand that people want to have a good time after being locked up for 6 months and they certainly did whilst maintaining relatively good humour under the rules. We were paid a visit from the authorities last night and were given a green light for the measures we have in place. We just had a minor recommendation for background music being too low 😁
Thanks to all the bar staff who worked tirelessly all day and night taking orders and serving tables of people. Big shout out to Gummy and Monkey for running a tight ship with some humour, but firm in handling lapses in the rules. We want to stay open so well done all and a fab night was had by everyone.
πŸ₯‚πŸ‘πŸ‰πŸ΄σ §σ ’󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

[05/14/21]   Following today's announcement, we will be back open this Wednesday Evening from 7pm. We will then be open Fri, Sat & Sun as before from 12pm. Then 2pm thereafter.You will be pleased to know that there will not be a booking system in place as we would prefer to manage the foot-fall ourselves with door staff.

Table service from our lovely staff will continue and so will the wearing of masks until you are seated, but put on again if using the toilet or going outside. Smoking is in the beer garden only and not the front door area. We will continue to take cash and contactless payments as before. All this is has been from government guidance apart from the no booking which was our decision. We have heard that authorities will be randomly checking venues.

Once we are at capacity, it will be people out, people in like before, we feel that this is the only fair way to operate until an update on regulations again. ONLY ON SATURDAYS and UNTIL 6PM, it will be members-only, a membership card will be checked by door staff against our records. Again we feel this is only fair for members but ONLY until 6pm, after that, it is regulated by door staff to ensure we don't exceed capacity.

We will have background music on but no live music, but we are sure you would just like to get out and socialise again. We want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves, however, drunk, disorderly and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated as we don't wish to spoil the enjoyment and atmosphere within the club.

Finally, it will be fab to see you all again, it has been a long time, hopefully, the unlocking will continue and we can start to play rugby again soon. πŸ‘πŸ€ŸπŸ‰

Adults 13/05/2021

Adults

Good evening all. We are pleased to announce that we can now offer supporters of Ystrad Rhondda Rugby Club, sports apparel with Ystrad Rhondda branding via Macron Store.

Going forward we will be kitting out from Mini up to seniors with the same kits, branding and colours. This is in line with our vision of professionalism and recognising our club as one of the most successful rugby clubs in the Rhondda both on and off the field over the past 4 years. If you wish to order any apparel or even have a browse, please click on the link below.

Adults

[05/11/21]   We will await news from Drakeford on Friday about rules etc before giving you a definitive answer about weekend opening logistics. We dont wish to return to booking tables and are more in favour of once capacity reached then reserve the right to stop people coming in or otherwise it will be chaos. Will update you Friday.

This would be fab to get the youngsters back out in the open air and be part of one of the most successful clubs in the Rhondda at present. Chris Hanly and Jack Dunning will do a superb job coaching tomorrow's talent.

Training returns this Sunday 28th March for our under 13s. Training starts at 10:30am on Gelligalad park. We can't wait to get started. New players are welcome to become part of this successful team.

A year ago this weekend, was the start of the CTRL ALT DEL reset for us all. The last band to play here a year ago.

Prop Appeal- Cardiff Health Charity 06/03/2021

Prop Appeal- Cardiff Health Charity

A massive well done and thank you to all those who donated and did a walk today for Adam Harcombe, truly inspirational.

Prop Appeal- Cardiff Health Charity The neuro-rehabilitation unit at Rookwood Hospital provides rehabilitation for people who have suffered brain injuries. The severity of this type of injury means that patients are often in hospital for many months.

02/03/2021

A year ago we got on it immediately and raised money for the flood relief victims. As usual, the community pulled through. The players past and present held a rugby match on the Galed field (below in the comments section ). The bands and artists gave up their time for free, all in all, a good day πŸ‘

Our Story

The branding will belong to Ystrad Rhondda Rugby Club. All people are welcome at our venue, there is no exclusiveness as we try to set ourselves apart from the rest.

Bands that wish to play this venue, please bear in mind that under our licence there is a STRICT restriction on the use of external PA systems used by bands because of non controllable dB levels by the manager/licencee. This will be reviewed by RCT in future providing we have no complaints about noise pollution. This was strictly enforced by the HSO at RCT, a copy of which can be seen on request, this was due to complaints from some neighbours in the past.

However, you will be pleased to know that we have an in-house dedicated band PA system with a very experienced sound man who will mic up vocals, drums, back-line amps, line out for keyboards, click and backing tracks, any other instrument is catered for. We have FOH set up of 2 JBL PRX800 3 way active tops lopped to 2 Mackie 2 wayβ€˜15" speakers. Behringer X32 digital desk with 18 ins and 8 sends. We have seven stage monitors if needed plus the use of Sennheiser top of the range in-ear monitors, 12 ceiling speakers around the venue plugged into desk. Shure mics, AKG clip on mics, overhead mics, DI boxes, mic stands, lights, lasers and haze machine. This in house PA service is NOT optional but compulsory as we wish to keep our licence, so if we book you or you request to book a gig, bear this in mind. If you read all the reviews from bands you will see that we have a great sound and set up notwithstanding that we know the sound acoustics of the venue better than gigging bands.

We have a discretionary budget for cover bands and anything over Β£250 has to go through the committee as we are a free to enter venue and do not charge our patrons. Tribute bands we will have now and again and because of their hierarchy of fees in the food chain, they will have to be approved and ticket only if approved. Bands always get a very good welcome from the promoter and club. These are the terms and can be updated once certain restrictions are removed, so please don't insist on bringing your own.

Please enjoy the venue and respect us and our neighbours as we aim to make your experience a good one. Feedback is always welcome.
