The Regz

THE REGZ at The Fleece Fri 8 March 2019 from 07:00 pm

Originated in 2004, The REGZ started life playing a “one off” Christmas party just for fun with a partially working PA system in a “downtown” bar somewhere in the Old Market area!

However this “one off” performance lead to an invite to play at a large charity party in the February of 2005. After the success of the gig, the REGZ became an on going project. 

The line up has changed several times over the years, as have the sound and indeed the stage show. The current line up has been consistent since the beginning of 2008 and the band has gone from strength to strength.

The REGZ love to entertain and draws its inspiration and image from the 60’s and 70’s Soul, Funk, Pop and rude boy Ska, that can take you from Aretha to Otis and James Brown to The Specials.

So who are the REGZ??????????????????????

The band consist nine faces that incorporate a brass section who are known as the “Horny Horns”

Jim Dyke (bass) and Dave Hooper (sticks) drive the rhythm of the band, hotly supported by Jon Madden on guitar and the wizard on keys known as Colin Smith. This forms the spirit of the REGZ. The sweet soul of the band is made up of Martyn “hot lips” Harries (trumpet) and Savio “sweet lips” Pacini (trombone). The vocals are shared by two roses and a thorn who are, Ruth, Charlene and Kevin Gregory (vox!). This forms the harmonies and entertainment that are the REGZ!

The REGZ love an invite to any party and specialise in weddings, birthdays and corporate functions.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
