One Step Beyond!

I've now finished my stint as a pit musician for the Epsom Playhouse Madness musical. "Our House." It was a great success with some full houses and a thank you to those who came to see the show.

Thanks too Phil Martin for the loan of the Wah-wah pedal - It came in very handy. All my gear functioned very well with no breakdowns or broken strings. I used the Gibson Les Paul Studio as the main guitar and it did the job well.

There's the possibility of a Bitter Springs gig in Italy during June 2013 - more news about that when it is confirmed but it will be good to see some Italian sunshine whilst i'm sitting here writing this while it is freezing cold outside!

I've been getting good feedback from people while I've been out and about, who were at the recent Bitter Springs gig at the Beveree during early November. They all said it was a great gig and they'd certainly come back to the next one. I'm still waiting to see the video where I jumped into the drum kit at the end of the gig.

A Game of Two Halves

Last Saturdays Bitter Springs charity gig supporting Hampton and Richmond Borough Football Club at The Beveree was a tremendous success raising around £600.

The atmosphere was great an it was good too see the crowd enjoying themselves and spurring on the band to give one of their best performances. New songs such as Lifeboat Man were aired for the first time to the sell out crowd.

Lesson for next time is buy your tickets as soon as possible as the next gig will sell out. Maybe in January the Springs will return to the Beveree for a launch Party for the forthcoming album "Everybody's Cup of Tea.
