11th January 2014 - What we're up to next....

So it’s 2014 and much stuff already in the pipeline: Here’s what we’re up to in the next couple of months.

We kick off with a return to one of our very favourite venues, the Roebuck in Burton-on-Trent on Sunday 2nd February: early doors, 5.30 kick-off. The Roebuck is a rare thing; a pub full of people that actually seem to like music, rather than just the noise it makes (if you know what we mean).

On Saturday 15th we’re back at the Chestnut Tree on the Mansfield Road in Sherwood. Haven’t played there for a while, but a local’s opinion at a previous gig was “You’re so much better than most of the s**t we have here!” We’ll take it as a compliment......

Then onto a new venue, the Wetmore Whistle, also in Burton, on Saturday 22nd. Looking forward very much to this one as it’s a place that really focuses on live music, and it’s taken us ages to get a gig there. If you’re in the area, or can get to the area, please come along and give us, and it, some support.

March sees another debut, at the Corn Mill in Beeston/Chilwell/Toton (wherever it is, but very local for most of us). 28th March, a Friday night for a change, and should see a good turnout from friends, family and workmates. Plenty of other gigs lined up, and more to come as the diary fills up. We’re pretty happy to do one or two a month: fits with our other commitments, and we’d get bored if we did too many.... Hope to see you at a gig or two this year!

Breaking News! (10th February 2013)

It is with great sadness, tinged with a sense of aural relief, that we’ll be losing our really rather loud drummer Jez after three-and-a-half terrific years. Family and work call back Down South, and his last gig with us will be at the Roebuck in Burton on Trent on the 10th of March. However, we have a superb replacement primed and ready to go. Good luck to both of them!
