Unlike lots of hardworking musos, I like a break at this time of year. It means I can spend time with my family and also go out and catch a few gigs as a punter. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to do both, and to perform regularly throughout the year. Keep an eye on those less fortunate, and also keep an eye on yourselves too. I’ll see you in the new year or will maybe bump into at a gig over the break. Thanks again for your support all through the year. It really makes a difference.
I’ll be on the Custom CoolEtch stand with some bridge street Guitars as well as promoting CCE’s great etched metal guitar parts. Might see you there?
Back from Palma and gigging solo again. Three this week.
First off, online streaming gig this Wednesday 10th July, evening, 8.30 – 9.30 UK time. All originals (might sneak one or two BBB style covers in), only £2 to view this never to be repeated session – My Big Bedroom – Get yourself signed up – especially if you can’t get out to gigs much or you’re elsewhere in the UK or overseas from us here.
Then, last minute booking just come in for the famous for good taste and top quality beers, The Schooner, in Gateshead. My normal mixed set for this one. 9pm start, Friday 12th July.
Saturday 13th July late afternoon I’m at The Quays, 5 Tubwell Row, Darlington, DL1 1NU, 6 – 8 pm.
All bookings (solo, duo, bands) are now live and on the dates page. Hope to see some of you out there.
I’ve been out solo, duo (as Oil City Shakers) and with the bands The Bandits, Ma Kelly’s Boys and The Velvets in 2018. Such a great range and variety of music. Not sure what 2019 will bring but I hope to see you on the road. Thanks for your support this year.
