What a roller-coaster start to the new year, we are on enforced leave for the for the next few weeks as Jack our Guitarist has been having heart surgery, happily everything has gone OK and we hope to be back in rehearsals mid February, with our first gig at the Yew Tree Halifax.
We haven’t been chilling during that time Jon Berry has been been collaborating with a good friend of his John O’Brien on writing some songs with a distinctly off-the-wall flavour. Check them out https://thecut.fm/berry-obrien.
Our rhythm section has been moonlighting and have been in the studio with Keira’s other band, Syteria recording their first EP with Jackie Chambers from Girlschool on guitar and Julia Calvo on vocals, Mike laying down the drum tracks.
We haven’t updated for a while but there have been some changes over the past few weeks, we had a storming gig at the Leeds Custom and Classic Bike show.
Unfortunately Danny has left us due to personal commitments, and we wish him well for the future. We have decided to continue as a four piece with Jon picking up on guitar. We are locked in rehearsals and will be having our first outing as a four piece at the Marsh Blues Club Huddersfield in December.
What can we say? An amazing evening with some great bands on, the Blue Angels put on an awsome event and we must thank the guys who did lights and PA we really appreciate it fellas. There should be some pictures soon.
We came back from a break to do a quick gig at the Brooky, South Elmsall, the traffic on the A1M, and surrounding routes was awful so we were stuck in traffic for an nearly hour that meant we started 10 mins late. Sod’s law says if it can go wrong it will, hit by iPad and mixer wanting to upgrade before we could use it (Thanks Apple), disintegrating bass drum pedal and low flying cymbals lead to an interesting first set. However great audience who we thank for putting up with a few hitches. Second set was storming.
Time to write some more new numbers so off to rehearsals.
Hi Been a while since we posted some updates but we’ve been really busy.
Firstly Best wishes on their birthdays to Jack and Keira one year older but they won’t catch the rest of us up.
We have finished off a couple of new songs which we aired at first at the The New Traveller’s Rest in Leeds and The Blues Bar in Harrogate last month, we were really pleased with the audience reaction to them so click on the links below to see them performed at the Snooty Fox in Wakefield. We shot a live video there and we will publish a few more individual songs later.
We are pleased to announce that we will be guesting with Kory Clarke of Warrior Soul fame at the Snooty Fox Wakefield on the 16th of May tickets are available on the door and from the Snooty Fox, Kory will be there with his new band and we are really looking forward to it. here’s a sample of his new material- pretty good stuff.
