Approx. capacity: 700
The Robin 2 in Bilston is an excellent live music venue with a capacity of 700, and draws appreciative crowds to see some unexpected big names, local bands and tribute acts. At the front of the club, Noddy's Bar - named after the Slade frontman - is an excellent place to meet for a drink before the gig. The Robin provides a refreshing alternative for those who like to listen to good live music at a reasonable price. The Robin 2 is unique in the fact that it is also a hotel. The Robin 2 hotel has been inundated with bookings since it's opening in May 2008. The 500,000 pounds hotel is aimed at giving concert-goers the chance to enjoy a drink and have a bed nearby for convenience. The old building next to the Mount Pleasant music venue was gutted and transformed into the new attraction as part of a 12 week renovation project. The hotel was built during celebrations to mark the 10th anniversary of the music venue. Each of the eight sound-proofed rooms are fitted out with en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee machines and digital televisions.

With a brand new line-up, Aynsley returns to the Robin 2 yet again for another electrifying performance. He was the only British artist to be featured in ‘Classic Rock’s Top 10 Blues Artists of the new Millennium’ alongside such names as Joe Bonamassa, The White Stripes and The Black Keys, following the release of his latest album. He’s been described as the best guitarist since Clapton at his peak, whilst others have said that he’s the UK’s very own John Mayer. In June 2010, Aynsley headlined the ‘Bourbon Street’ stage at the Glastonbury festival and went on to play alongside ZZ Top just weeks later. Now, preparing for his next album, Aynsley will be showcasing some of his best songs accompanied with a selection of his new, original material and some classic covers as you’ve never heard them played before. Expect an evening of finely crafted songs performed with a passion and conviction that will have you hooked from the first chord.
