What’s on in Tavira or where can I find Live Music in Tavira? Not just Tavira, but also the surrounding towns of Cabanas, Olhão, Loulé and Faro, across to the Spanish border in Ayamonte. Put these into your search engine and you will find numerous pubs, clubs, restaurants and a good selection of Open Air Events throughout the Summer. Richy Bassett is available for any event, large or small in this area.
He is currently resident on Thursday Nights in The Talabriga Café Bar, across from the Wooden Bridge in the Old Town of Tavira. When Reilly’s Irish Bar re-opens, Richy Bassett will go back and play his unique selection of pop, rock and ballad classics, with a good sprinkling over Country Music for the sing-along crowd. Richy has played his brand of music all across the Algarve, including Tavira, Olhao, Sao Bras de Alportel, Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, Paderne, Cabanas, Lagos, Pera, and many others.
Being a tourist area, one would expect a lot of Live Music in the east algarve, including cabaret, karaoke (KJ & DJ), but venues are taxed by the local town hall and forced to pay Copyright fees, whatever the kind of music they play. This means that, even before the band is paid, the bar must sell the equivalent of 100 beers on the night, just to pay the taxes. This does not encourage smaller bars to provide music and discourages new venues from starting live music. I would strongly suggest a 10-year trial period in Tavira, with no Town Hall intervention other than noise-limiting, time controls and POSITIVE support for live music, promoting the area, particularly fro visitors from Spain that are currently penalised by the recklessly stupid Motorway Toll System. I know from experience that the Spanish love to come to Portugal and hear the Portugues Fado and the US/British style of music.
It will also promote the Wedding Band scene, Cabaret acts, Pub, bar, restaurant and banquet hall events and generally, fun in Tavira. If you need a singer for hire for your algarve music festival or event, Richy is your man. Call now to make a booking: 966 006 436 or 281 971 484 ask for Gillian.
