Musicians Wanted: O’Leary’s Irish Bar, Torrox Costa
Ok guys, new year means new music for us!
So, if you’re a performer in a band or solo or duo or whatever, contact us! We book music at least 2 nights a week this time of year and 5 nights during summer and we are always looking for new acts!
WHAT WE WANT: entertainment! That’s what it about in the end! Musical ability and some personality and we love something a bit different!
WHAT WE DON’T WANT!: Singers with backing tracks (no offence but its just not our style, our music needs to be live)
People who want to do short sets with 30 mins breaks. We don’t mind people taking a break but not taking the p*ss!
We don’t do silly tip jars or the likes. We pay a fair nights wage for good entertainment but as we are a small bar that doesn’t charge admission, people really need to be realistic when quoting us prices….
All that said, we have many regular acts who we love and give loads of work too so if you think you’re style would fit in here, drop us a msg or even better, pop in to see us!


DoctorLaptop’s January Special:
Slow Computer? My famous Clean & TuneUp Special is back, for Windows & Mac. Until Feb. 01 you can now get 20% off, only €40! If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
Computer and tablet repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO, business computer maintenance & security service.
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android.
