2013, 2014…..

2013 has been good I think.

Solo work going well – lots of bookings, some big name supports and an album released in September to modest sales. Quite a few radio show appearances plus tracks played far and wide. Thanks!

The Bandits’ 21st year included our sell out anniversary gig at The Cluny in January, 6th time on main stage at Stormin’ The Castle Custom Bike Show and a cracking Christmas party at Blaydon Black Bull Rock and Blues Club. Me, Whalebone and Brad Dolphin are still alive!

Oil City Shakers duo with Ronnie Semple gelled well during the year – and included an appearance at Stormin’ too. 2-STROKE duo with Oil Slick Mick also came together.

Sadly Oil City Connection bit the dust due to various reasons – mostly diary related. 2009 – 2013 RIP OCC…. My hand operation seems to have gone OK too.

2014? Lots more Bandits and solo gigs, OCS continues, 2-STROKE will carry on too. A new solo album is planned and I have a couple or three other projects bubbling under.

Thanks to all who have taken the trouble to see me play solo and with The Bandits, OCC, 2-STROKE and Oil City Shakers. Thanks to all who have booked us/me to play. Also thanks to anyone that has listened to any of my recordings and the album. Please feel free to share them with anyone you’d like to – keen that things get heard. Big thanks to anyone who has bought my stuff this year too. Also, thanks to anyone that has played my stuff on radio stations – and to those have listened to me on the radio. And another thank you to anyone who has made music with me in any form this year.
