Well its almost time for the first gig for my new little project, given the great name (by Gary Wright) of the Albon Project, which as I can’t think of anything better is sticking for the moment!
Its been a while since I have been running a small band, and I thought it was time to step back and return to my roots a bit, revisiting some of my own material I was writing ten years ago, and that has got buried in the intervening years.
First outing for my new group, is this coming Sunday, 2nd January at The Brambletye Hotel, Forest Row. The gig starts at 8.00 and its FREE Entry. Also a bank holiday the next day so no excuse for not coming out and having a beer listening to some great music.
The project will be working with a big mixture of material, incorporating funky african beats along with latin and free ideas.
The group will be slightly amorphous with guests joining as the project progresses but for this first gig we have a stellar lineup of:
Alex Bondonno: Saxes
Joe Thomas: Piano
Nick Mcguigan: Bass
Noel Joyce: Drums
ALBON PROJECT: The Brambletye Hotel, Lower Square
