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.

The Dualers are Britain’s much loved Ska and Reggae band from the South of England who have steadily built up a following of many thousands of truly dedicated fans across all ages and have sold out at the Indigo O2 a record breaking 4 times within 18 months.
In 2004 their first single ‘Kiss On The Lips’ entered the UK charts at number 21, selling 14,000 copies and out-selling chart heavyweights Scissor Sisters and Girls Aloud in its first week. Their second single ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ was another chart success, entering at number 23 in November 2005 and the song was subsequently featured on the ‘Fools Gold’ soundtrack of the film starring Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson.
Increased media interest saw The Dualers appearing on GMTV, This Morning, Sky News and Channel 5 News.
The third chart single in 2006 "Don’t Go" was followed by release of their debut album ‘The Melting Pot’ and helped establish The Dualers as one of the most respected names on the UK Ska and Reggae scene. Q Magazine said "The Dualers soulful harmonising has admirable echoes of Bob Marley and Sam Cooke" and The Independent wrote "These local superstars are inching towards fame".
They have already performed with headline acts including Toots & The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster, Madness and Aswad and supported UB40. The second album ‘The Cooking Pot’ also sold out its first pressing within a month.
Simon left the band at the end of 2010 to pursue a solo career, and with Tyber
continuing to front The Dualers they won the coveted 2 Tone Central Award for Best Band at the SKAbour Weekend Festival in Folkestone, where they headlined on the Saturday night at the Quaterhouse.
They are returning again this year to headline the popular Saturday night event. The Dualers are currently in the studio recording their third self-penned album due for release in Feb 2014. This follows the "With Respect" album, released in December 2011 and the "Prince Buster Shakedown" album produced for the International Ska Festival 2012.
The band continues to perform on a regular basis to fans from all over the world, and have recently returned to the Indigo at the O2 for a 5th show in June 2012 and October 2013.
