Hi guys - just wanted to give you all a bit of an update RE the band and what's happening at HQ.
Unfortunately, we have had to pull our appearance on Friday 2nd June in London. We had hoped to avoid it, but these things happen from time to time. Please go along and see our friends in HammerJacK and support An Alternative Gathering. They do sterling work. The other bands are all fine listening candy!
Our next scheduled appearance is due to be Basingstoke LIVE festival on the ...8th of July. We hope to be back stronger than ever and to see some friendly faces in support.
Finally, I want to give credit to Gareth, Paul and David for their incredible support, as both musicians and friends, throughout 2017. When the chips are down y'all need friends to support ya and they've done just that. Times have been tough for me personally lately so I owe them a great deal. I also owe a huge amount to my wider network - my wife Trudie and my children - because they have been on other side, the side away from being a bluesman!
I hope to see you in July and thank you all for your riding along with us - I won't forget it!
We are delighted to announce that we have been invited back to play at HRH Blues IV next April at the O2 Academy in Sheffield!
We had a blast last time we played, so we are back this year to open the Main Stage on Sunday 15th of April 2018. We will be appearing alongside some our contemporaries such as The Rainbreakers, Catfish, Kris Barras Band, Ben Poole, Stevie Nimmo and more!
The event is headlined by Bernie Marsden and King King! What's not to like!?
See you there...
Skegness - The Great British Rock & Blues Festival 2017!
