Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I've just finished a seasonal trio of gigs with The High-s at The Sun Inn, Englefield Green, The Wishing Well in Hayes culminating in a New Years' Eve gig at the Hare and hounds in Woking. The landlord of The Hare and Hounds was very impressed after selling 150 tickets in less than a week! Venues are re-booking The High-s after they've heard us play live. The Sun Inn even gave us a year long residency. 2014 is filling up very quickly. We're getting a reputuation as a great night out. 2 x 1 hour sets of The Who/Small Faces/The Kinks/The Jam followed by a disco with lots of danceable music.

I'm still looking for that restaurant gig - if you know of anyone who needs an instrumental guitarist for a couple of hours - let me know. I play the hits of The Beatles, classical and popular tunes from the 60's/70's/80's/etc. Great for background music - not too loud either so that your guests can still have a conversation with one another.

The Bitter Springs are still in the process of recording their follow up to 'Everyone's Cup of Tea'. Recording is progressing well and I've been asked to record some guitar rather than the Bass at the next session. time to get the Gretsch Country Gentleman out!
