Peterborough’s North Street Bar is upping the game when it comes to giving lovers of live music what they want.

As well as the regular Friday and Saturday night entertainment, North Street now has music every Thursday from 8pm.

This includes the bar’s long standing Red Lionz Promotions rock nights, organised by Dave Smith from Children of the Revolution - a leading light for a number of bands.

And of course the Open Mic night, a popular thursday fixture hosted by Jimmy Doherty from the High Rollers.

Last week saw the launch of a new Live Music Showcase, where North Street will be presenting up and coming local bands with a strong emphasis on original material.

They have also launched a new “shindig” dance night, presented by long standing collaborators Zed and Jim from the Eclectic Ballroom, who will be delivering a mashed up mix of soul, funk and indie.

“With Friday and Saturday nights proving increasingly popular we’re looking to equally establish Thursday night with the same popular mix of live music, and unique guest DJs (all free admission) plus comedy nights,” said Graham Finding from the club.“

On the subject of comedy, Funhouse Comedy returns to North Street Bartonight (April 16) for more fun and laughter.

Headlining the night is Scottish Comedian of the Year 2013, the enthusiastic Larry Dean

Tickets are £8.50 in advance. Doors open 7.30pm, 8pm start.

This weekend there’s Joe Solo playing at 11pm on Friday, and Otis & Jules with a DJ Set at 10pm on Saturday.
