Mon 20th May: Jazz Jam
Our twice monthly live Jazz session has arrived once again.

A night giving the stage over to a whole host of local musicians. Expect beautiful ballads right through to burning Be-Bop; meaningful Mainstream to mad Modal; furious Funk to the frightfully Free; lively Latin to luscious Lounge; and classic Cool through to the curiously Contemporary!

8.30pm, free entry. Knock 3 times and say necessity sent you.

Tues 21st May: Treebeard Folk Session
Chris McMahon (Treebeard, Haze,  Strongheart, Silverwheel) and friends join us for a new night of acoustic folk. Performers of all abilities are welcome and, naturally, everyone welcome to listen and watch.

Weds 22nd May: Quiz Night
The irrepressible Duncan is back with his fiendish but light hearted quiz. 3 rounds of pop culture, music and general knowledge. £30 to be won + spot rounds and the infamous art challenge. What's more, there's even a free buffet to boot with something to cater for every dietary requirement.


Thursday 23rd May: Jam Night
Chris Firminger & The TwoJays host this long standing Sheffield Jam session, welcoming performers from across South Yorkshire and further afield. Expect performances from the likes of Thor, Black Sabbra, Ricochet, Open Jaw Fayre and a whole other host of talent. Full P.A. and backline provided, all abilities welcomed. Come play, watch and listen.

9pm, free entry

Friday 24th May: Local Heroes

A new band made up from a wealth of experience from many classic Sheffield bands, including Vamp, The Carnival, Jackson, 7 Day Weekend and many more.

Forgotten classics and originals, played with class and passion. When was the last time you heard songs from Slade, Sweet, Rick Springfield, Don Henley, be Bop Deluxe, Lou Reed , Georgia Satellites etc etc plus some of the more esoteric Thin Lizzy?

Rock with a rock n' roll swagger - they smashed it last time they played and are only getting better.

9.30pm, free entry

Saturday 25th May: Gav Coulson Group

Highly respected guitarist Gavin Coulson arrives at The White Lion this evening, but this time with his own group.

Playing a selection of fine tunes from Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore amongst many others, a belter of a rock night is anticipated!

Baz Groom - Photographer and Reviewer for Rock of The North...
"What band in their right mind would perform the Allman Bros "Whippin Post" on a Friday night in the Boot & Shoe? More importantly, get away with it? Well that band would be the Gav Coulson Group. The same song even got em' up dancing (until they realised the song is a tad over 3 minutes!) And along with tracks from Gary Moore, Hendrix, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout and a blistering take on Joe Bonamassa's version of Just Got Paid, the group went down a storm. Most know of Gavin's prowess on the guitar, but this is no 'one man band'. Four cracking musicians who know their stuff. Keyboards from Chris Pilkington ex Storm Bringer & Empress really give the band a rich sound. Ably assisted by a powerhouse rhythm section, this is rock blues at it's best!!"


9.30pm, free entry

Sunday 26th May: The Sunday Jam
Hosted by The Carnival, our afternoon jam takes place every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month. Classic songs, covers and originals and a huge amount of talent on show, plus a very passionate crowd. Come get a taster of the bands we have coming soon.

All abilities and genres welcome, full PA and backline provided and all welcome to play or listen.

5pm, free entry
