Article Date: 2013-03-19
The Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley has appointed well-known musician Nigel Wears as its pianist in residence.
Much acclaimed for his fun and friendly musical performances Nigel will play at the Guiseley restaurant every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and on selected Bank Holidays.
Nigel’s musical repertoire is enjoyed by customers of all ages and wherever possible he will accommodate requests, particularly for patrons celebrating a special occasion.
Caroline Murphy, general manager of The Wetherby Whaler, said: “Nigel has become very popular with our customers and has become a part of the experience at the Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley.
“Live piano music adds to the ambience of our fantastic restaurant. Great fish and chips, and great music are set to become a weekend tradition in Guiseley!”
Nigel has played piano professionally since leaving Leeds College of Music back in 1986. He said: “I’m a big lover of fish and chips so for me this is the best job in town. So far my requests from customers have been for songs as diverse as “We’ll gather lilacs”, “Incey Wincey Spider” and Emeli Sande. The most important thing for me is to create good atmosphere and happy memories for people.”
The Wetherby Whaler is a leading player in the popular fish and chip restaurant and take-away market in Yorkshire. It also has restaurants and takeaways in Wetherby, York, Pudsey and Wakefield.
The Guiseley restaurant, the original Harry Ramsden’s, continues the Wetherby Whaler tradition of value for money with great fish and chips in first class surroundings.
