Sure there is, I can´t really talk about T-bag, because some people seem to think I have a commercial interest in the band, their playdates are listed on their site: www.tbag.es.

Also my workplace on the beach (I´m not an owner any longer) will host a couple of events, anyone interested can send me an private message......

There´s another upcoming band called Azotea, who play a modern sort of Flamenco and are very entertaining. If I´m allowed to I will post a couple of playdates.

If you see Live Music anounced with "The Lion Band", give it a miss. Seen them last night and it´s utter crap.

Saw a Spanish group at the Esuri Club House on Friday evening, they are called Flamenco and they were great. Made a change from the same old groups playing the same old music. Regards Bryony.

Holiday? What´s that ???

I think those are the correct dates, I know that the 9th is the last day because of some of my friends will be the closing musical act on that day (The band´s name starts with a T and ends in g...... and there´s a b and an a somewhere)

Schools start the 10th ?? I´m under the impression it´s the 14th...

Infant and primary go back on Thursday 10 and secondary later. Grandkids disappointed, like you they weren't expecting to go back before 14th!!

Steve, this is the annual festival for Ayamontes patron saint. It is located by the bus station and the whole of the area is now in the process of being decorated with lights. Basically the whole town comes to a standstill and the kids do not go back to school until its over. Its basically like a fairground but with live music, dancing and colourful local costumes for 6 nights. If you intend to visit it is best to go late evening. My family and I have been out from after 11pm to about 3/4 in the morning when there has always been a great family atmosphere.

Thanks Sharon

My wife and I are over from 5th Sept. I must admit that fiestas are not for us, although we don't mind the traditional religious elements. The rest is very noisy. It's good to know the dates though as the area will no doubt be busier.
