the talbot rocks it's socks off

We've found another gem........No not another female vocalist but another excellent local gig.
Last night we had a superb night giving our all for the very appreciative crowd at the Talbot on Bradford Rd in Batley. We were made very welcome by the staff and audience alike. Not the best publicised gig in the area but on last nights evidence one of the best. Comments such as "the best band we've had here" really make all the hard work worthwhile.
Can't wait for our next gig there.

heading out east...again

After our succesful foray into Hull to play the Barham earlier in the year we have just agreed to head east again to play two dates in Beverley. Think the pub concerned is the Sun Inn on Sat 15th July and Sat 30th Sept. Stay tuned for further info and check out the bands official site at

snotty april

Apologies for lack of posts recently but spent most of April laid low by flu and then classic hay fever symptoms even though I have managed fifty years without ever suffering from it before. Hopefully more keyboard action in May. Gigging at a new venue for us the Talbot on Bradford Rd Batley Friday 19th.

the poplar amazes once again

On the face of it the Poplar at Altofts is not the most appealing of venues but last Saturday yet again it provided the backdrop for a great gig. Unnervingly underpopulated at the beginning of our set, a couple of songs in, a reasonable crowd had materialised. What makes this venue special is that although numbers are not huge it is frequented by people who really enjoy good live music and they let the band know it.
We are definately looking forward to playing there on the three or four return dates already in our diary.
