Practice, practice…. practice

 

Despite a very cold Friday evening last week, we’re busy putting together an extensive set list that includes covers of popular contemporary rock enthused blues tracks by the Stones, Free, The Doors, Canned Heat… but also includes more traditional blues tracks by BB King, Albert King and Blind Connie Williams.

After much discussion we’ve also decided to add in a couple of tracks from the up and coming debut album, due out later this year, to give you a taste of where we are going musically.

Apart from the VIP party gig in April, we have already started taking bookings for gigs later in the year. This includes a charity gig in October raise awareness of homelessness where we will be joined by top European Blues band The Marbletones, together with the highly respected touring artist Tony Close (More information to be announced once contracts have been signed). Tony has played for, and alongside, some of the very best high profile bands in the world over the years, including his own band Close Encounters. We’re looking forward to Tony enthralling us with his set list of the very best of guitar blues. The Marbletones, including top harpist Ben Bouman, have toured right across Europe and the United States, where they regularly play to sell out audiences….We are extremely lucky to have both join us.

As we write this, I can confirm that we there are a further three dates that look like they will be added this month!

PHOTOSHOOT AT NORCHARD JUNCTION

If you’re reading our band blog you’ve probably come through our new web site… If not then what are you waiting for… Take a look!

Anyway, just to let you know, the arty photo sets were taken by Chris Barnes from MHC Creative at Norchard Junction in the glorious Forest of Dean on a wet Saturday morning in mid January… That’s why we all looked ‘Blue to the Bone’… Please excuse the bad humour, but it was miserable and cold.

For those of you out there who’ve not heard of Chris Barnes, he’s a renowned street artist and has produced web sites for some the best up and coming bands in the UK… Thanks Chris for coming along at short notice after our band photographer went down with flu!
