The Bates Motel, The Cluny, Newcastle 24th October

So, the launch of the new originals band, The Bates Motel, is confirmed!  It’s The Cluny in Newcastle on Sunday 24th October between 12 and 4pm.
 – selling fast.
It’s me (BBB) (front vocals and guitars).  Joined by Ally Lee (guitars/keys/vocals), Ainsley Wills (guitars), Dave Coates (bass/vocals), Adam Forster (drums) and Leslie Young (percussion/harmonica/vocals).
We’ll be playing songs from my last 4 solo recordings starting with Bridge Street and ending with DeadBeat (not necessarily in that order though!), and this bunch of brave and enthusiastic stalwarts have really brought the tunes alive!
I’m hoping as many of you as possible can come along to offer your support and encouragement. I know launching a 6 piece originals band is probably crazy, but it’s time to start working on the bucket list and I couldn’t have better people around me. You should hear what they’re doing with the material…
