It is sad to report that one of our regular venues has closed. The Admiral Duncan in Wakefield is no more so consequently any previously advertised gigs there are now cancelled.

surprise at the cross keys

Following Fifty/50's Friday gig at the Cross Keys in Morley two weeks ago we were delighted to read a very favourable view of our performance on the pub's website Simple phrases like "i really like this band" and "they powered through their set" really mean a lot to us coming unprompted from an unbiased and neutral audience member. Landlord and Landlady Howard and Lynne are one of the area's keenest supporters of local live music and it is always a pleasure to play there even if the audience numbers some times leave a little to be desired. Our next date there is Sat 6th Sept when hopefully Saturday night will provide a few more revellers.

late call up at the slipper

Big thanks are in order to Anton who stood in admirably last Friday's Adverse Camber gig at the Slipper on Crofton. This was due to the late withdrawal of our regular bass player Simon. However since Simon is shortly on holiday, Anton's success means that he will now also play with us at the Victoria in Outwood Sat 19th July and also on Sunday the 20th at the Graziers if Simon is delayed in any way.
Also a new Adverse Camber gig has just been agreed for Friday 1st August at the Periwinkle in Wombwell, Barnsley. See links on left for all Adverse camber and Fifty/50 upcoming shows. Come along you will not be disappointed.
