Bio: The Tatts Hotel - Lismore's home of live original music FOR OUR COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE, please see www.tattshotel.com or the Tatts Hotel Facebook page, including information on the artists, links to their music websites, dates of gigs, etc. A little info about the Tatts... Two decades ago, the Tatts was considered the premier live music venue of the area. These days, music is back at the Tatts in a big way and we’re on a mission to make the Tatts the venue of choice for local and touring bands once again. Having recently won the Food & Beverage Award in the 2011 Northern Star Lismore Business Awards, the front bar is highly popular with weekend diners. Thursday is jazz night, which was recently described by the Northern Star as the best jazz night in the area. Soloists and duos contribute to the warm and friendly ambience for diners on Fridays and Saturdays, and we’re currently planning to ramp up the tempo with some late evening music in the front bar on weekends. On Fridays and Saturdays, bands of all genres bring the back room to life. We have refurbished the back room, retaining the high, ornate ceilings, and installing big, wooden ceiling fans that give the room a sultry vibe perfect for live music. At night, the room can be dressed up to create an intimate, old-world mood with tablecloths and candlelight, decorated for a theme night, or cleared for a night of dance music (see photos). The back room has a generous-sized stage to provide plenty of performance space, even for large bands. We have a good PA and supply exceptional in-house engineers. Touring bands have access to free accommodation in a dedicated 2-bunk (4-person) band room. HERE’S WHAT THE BANDS HAVE TO SAY We have had some awesome bands play in the back room since this mission began. Here is what a few of them have said about the Tatts recently... “Thanks so much for having us!!! We loved it!!! Great venue, great sound, cool promoters!!!! (who even paid to get into their own show!!!) See ya again soon!! - The Trip (http://www.thebandthetrip.com) - 2nd June 2011 “BIG THANKS TO THE TATTS !!! One of the shows on our recent Devolved technologies national tour, and was great from start to finish! Gourmet pizzas on the house (the best pizza!), healthy drinks rider, and the nicest and most well organised people/venue. Pam and all the management and staff looked after us well! Great show, great venue, great turn out, great fun!” - Devolved (http://www.myspace.com/15966369) – 21st May 2011 "The Tatts is a fantastic stepping stone for any band playing shows between Brisbane and Sydney. Their hard working sound engineer can squeeze every last drop out of the PA to give you an excellent sound in a great live room. PS. The Affogato is amazing...definitely worth a tenna." - Jack Potter, Tin Can Radio (http://triplejunearthed.com/tincanradio) – 14th May 2011 “The Tatts hotel is a wonderfully laid back and welcoming live venue set against the picturesque surrounds of northern NSW Australia. The Hard-ons certainly loved it there. The punters and the staff alike were friendly and enthusiastic. A great Australian live venue!” - Kindest regards, Ray, Hard-ons (http://www.hard-ons.net/index3.html) – 12th March 2011
