Guitarists group - Maureillas

When I was in the area recently I was informed by my friendly agent immobilier that there is a group of guitarists, mainly English, who play in El Tap café/restaurant in Maureillas las Illas. In fact his information turned out to be inaccurate: they don't play there every Monday, as he thought, but on the 1st Tuesday of the month, so they weren't actually there when we turned up to see them.

I wondered if anyone is acquainted with this group, and can give me more information?

This reply was given in PO Life Facebook Group -

1st Tuesday of the month during the winter months (whenever they're supposed to be!) El Tap runs a sort of open-mike night. You need to ask the organiser (Joan Ortiz) earlyish in the evening if he can give you a slot. Depending on the number of people there you might get to play a few numbers. It started out life as an 'acoustic' night but actually most people use some form of modest amplification. There's an amp and a mike available, or you can bring your own. Lots of people turn up during the evening and it's a very lively and enjoyable event, though can get pretty noisy as the evening progresses!

I see this has now finished for the summer. Does anyone know of anything similar in the area that carries on through the summer months?

I believe they are in St Genis. Herman is on Facebook. I suggest you message him via there.
The club is Club 66 and is also on Facebook.
Sorry I can't be more help.
