The Funky Lizard’ has been host to live music and jamming sessions on Sunday afternoons for just over two years and has attracted an ever increasing following of both musicians and audience.

New musicians and vocalists are always welcome and are invited to bring their instruments to add their contribution to the great musical sessions that are held here.

The new alterations to the premises has opened up the opportunity for more diverse entertainment and we can now accommodate larger crowds in a warm comfortable environment. We have seating capacity for 50 inside and can host small functions.

The alterations to the inner building support greater movement within the music circle allowing musicians the opportunity to set up and play at any time without imposing upon the dining customer. Visiting musicians are welcome to use the stage facility and may organise events with 'The Funky Lizard' management. 'The Funky Lizard' encourages new musicians and learning musicians to gain experience and have expert tuition available for those interested in lessons. Sunday afternoons are regular live music from 'jammers' and welcome experienced musicians to join in when visiting the area and we will be promoting other music nights when they have been organised.

Musicians who are regularly playing at 'The Funky Lizard' :-

Keith Birley
Singer/songwriter & rhythm guitar

Cindy Hill-Rennie
Music instructor keyboard, bagpipes, ukelele

Klaus Madsen
Lead guitarist

Ray Daysch

Phil Reha
Singer & guitarist


Although our instrumental and backing equipment is limited we intend to slowly add to the facility to eventually have a skeleton set-up enabling musicians to walk in and play without fuss.

Our recent history has proven that this has become a popular venue and a great resource for musicians to meet other multi talented musicians for each to learn from.

This includes the availability of music lessons for all types of musical instruments with various tutors eager to share their knowledge.

We are currently exploring setting up musical tuition classes during the year.

We have also in the past worked in with our kitchen to provide nights of food and entertainment which have been very successful and now with the restructuring we will be open to hosting various types of events throughout the weeks and months ahead.

You provide the ideas and we will work through the day/night/weekend plan with you.
