Well, the concert at St. George's is now over and we can look back on a performance to be proud of, as it was a great success. The new songs, that will later this year feature on our new album, went really well. The overall sound was good and the new foldback monitors gave us a reassuring balance on stage which was just what we wanted.
We can now look forward to our next gig, another BBQ for the GamBLE charity, at the end of August, where we hope to try out a few more of our new songs amongst the more well known playlist. The BBQ has a quite relaxed atmosphere and there is good fun when we jam with some of the regular local musicians. Fingers crossed for some dry weather!
Regards - John

Happy Anniversary!

The band have been asked to give a concert as part of the festival to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the church building. As the band played a concert when the church first opened this also marks ten years of live performances after a long period off the road concentrating on writing and recording.

The concert will feature a few of the new songs that will be on the new album that will be available later in the year. Some of the material has particular relevance for this year. One of the songs, 'Amongst the Roses' references the Battle of Waterloo which, coincidentally, has its 200 year anniversary a few days after the concert. Another song, 'The Agincourt Carol' celebrates the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. If 'Broadside' makes the playlist it will mark 350 years since the plague of 1665. I am not sure I have time to write a song about the Magna Carta to commemorate 1215!
