During the 1960s and 70s, east Belfast’s energetic music scene found its home in The Pound. Relive the atmosphere at this special gig with Pound legends Light and The Monarchs, as they recreate the sounds of Belfast’s hippest club in its heyday.

Belfast rock band Light featured Jim Armstrong (Them) on guitar and played to packed venues throughout the 70s. Tonight, bassist/vocalist Albert Mills joins forces with new talent to faithfully reproduce the old songs.

The Monarchs played with Van Morrison and the same nightclub circuit as The Beatles in Germany. Join original members and special guests John Wilson (Taste, Thin Lizzy) and Rod Derick (The Strawbs, Dr. John) for their first reunion in over fifty years!
