Well we have a bit of a busy month coming up, but first how was September?
2 great gigs went really well. First off we had our semi regular gig at the Brunswick, which turned out to be an amazing gig. Great vibe with the band, and an audience that materialized from nowhere to completely pack the place out. Just the two (three) of them were a fantastic addition to the band, and will definitely be joining us for some more gigs soon. After the sucess of the evening the manager of the venue has asked us to make his pub a regular monthly slot for the band, and we are only to happy to oblidge!
Then the following week we are down at the first gig at our new rehearsal home in Hassocks, at the aptly named Hassocks Hotel. This was a really good start for this new venue for the band, with a good throng of familiar faces coming out to support us, as well as some new ones. Gary was singing and up to his normal excellent form, and the sound and space we had for the musicians made this a really enjoyable gig for all the players. We will be carrying on with this gig every 2nd sunday of the month until at least Christmas.
Anyhow back to the subject line, and we we have lots of gigs coming up in the merry month of October, so please come and join us!
