Decades Apart opened the new look music stage


A dedicated promoter trying to bring a venue back to life is calling for bands to come and play.

Carl Dawson, of Bare Bones Production, wants to make The Vincent in Stevenage a home of great music, and needs your help. The first of what Carl hopes are many regular music nights took place at the end of May when his band Decades Apart performed a charity gig - raising over £200 for the Alzheimer’s Society and Macmillan thanks to the generosity of Stevenage businesses and punters.

He said: “We had the added bonus of a great disco from Reubens and the staging area with lights gave the gig a professional look, hopefully kicking off The Vincent as a new venue for live music.”

To get your band in the running for billing, and give good live music a new home in Stevenage, contact Carl on 07957 867557 or
