Matt EvansIn Memory of Matt

This was the last gig that the late, great Matt Evans organised for RVJ&B before his untimely passing. It is important to note what a fantastic contribution Matt made over the years to the cultural and musical life of our community bringing in countless terrific bands and artists. We at RVJ&B miss him massively.
