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.

JSOUTH WEST MUSIC AWARDS BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR ~ 2011 ~ THE WHIRLING DERVISH BEST ACT OF THE YEAR ~ 2012
Mad Dog Mcrea raise hands, lift feet and start parties wherever they play with their spellbinding recipe of folk, pop, rock, jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. They demand you to dance, whisking up whistles, fiddles and mandolins to collide in a spectacular explosion of infectious fun.
Thanks to three storming gigs at Glastonbury 2013 (notably the Avalon Stage), the release of their official video ‘Happy Bus’, regular radio play by esteemed folk such as Mike Harding, and in no small part the utter dedication of their huge fan base – momentum is definitely gathering pace.
Fresh and up for it, the Mad Dogs are touring the UK throughout the whole of November 2013 and tickets are flying. And if you can’t wait that long, you’ll find them in a festival field near you this summer. Check the gig list for details.
Mad Dog Mcrea’s name is firmly established on the live music scene, and they are in huge demand from festivals, live music venues and traffic wardens across the country. They were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2012 South West Music Awards, and in the same awards in 2011 their last album ‘The Whirling Dervish’ scooped ‘Best Album of the Year’. A much-anticipated live studio album is underway, due for release later this year.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
