LETTERS - Thanks a Dixie lot

Tuesday the 17th was one such evening of pure entertainment as the venue hosted the American band Hayseed Dixie. Hayseed Dixie are a novelty band in some ways because they perform rock songs in the bluegrass or hillbilly style, (as David Pickersgill reported).

The entertainment factor was excellent on the night. I monitored Facebook entries and all were of the same opinion as mine. Well done to the venue for risking losses to entertain the Wakefield music fans and those from out of town. Normally Wakefield residents have to travel to Leeds, Holmfirth or Sheffield to see international bands, but we have a venue in our own city for as long as the public support it.
