Upcoming Gigs

We have a few spots coming up if you’re in the Walsall area. We’d love to see you there and even sit in.

May 30th, The Olive Tree – A delightfully bijou venue in Walsall right beside the bus station. Charity gig, so bring some pennies to donate to Leukaemia Care. There will be a couple of sets from half seven. If you have no cup final tickets, or want to forget the scoreline, drop in.

June 13th, Walsall Arboretum Bandstand – Afternoon gig. Watch out for publicity closer to the event for times. We’re very lucky to get a Saturday gig here and we’re hoping the weather will hold. Apparently there’s a Reg Dwight concert on locally, but hopefully we can warm up for him, eh?

August 23rd, Walsall Arboretum Bandstand – This one’s a Sunday afternoon, and you’re welcome to turn up and join in. Bring your trumpet, flute, guitar, harmonica or whatever along and sit in with the band. We’ll be playing bits and pieces and you can find your groove with us. We tried it last year and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Do pop along to any of the gigs. Come to all of them. It’s going to be rather fun.

Back to the Tree House

We’ve been to play at The Tree House Bookshop before, and given the opportunity we were delighted to return. Andrew and Andy played our first gig there last year, so armed with our instruments and Dave to the drummer we headed south to find the shop a changed place.

Whittington Country Fair

Today we had an absolute ball at Whittington Fair. Many thanks to John for inviting us and for those who came to see us. You’re all stars.

Also, a warm welcome to our newest recruit the great Nigel Tame, pictured here with his weapon of choice.

Great Gig in the Arboretum Bandstand

Thanks to everyone who came to see us in Walsall Arboretum at the Bandstand. It was a great gig and made more fun for all concerned by the two unexpected guests who played and sang with us.

The sun shone, we played blues, and hopefully the afternoon was brighter for it.

We also want to take the opportunity to thank Gary Nicholson (who booked us) and his team of Rangers at Walsall Arboretum. Gary and Dennis opened up the venue for us, hung around to make sure we got off to a good start, then tidied up and put it all back at the end. Everything they did was with good humour and it was great to work with them.

Sow and Pigs – good for Gigs

We played at the Sow and Pigs in West Bromwich on Saturday night. They’re a brilliant crowd, with some local character! We had Dave joining us for his first gig as our drummer, plenty of blues and the occasional ale to help us on our way.

Next best thing to our name in lights...

We loved playing there, and hope Jason will have us back at some point. Maybe next time we’ll take a microphone with us so we can sing some numbers as well.
