Playing for a Freeman of Walsall

Yesterday we had the great pleasure of playing a gig at Walsall’s New Art Gallery. The Silver Thread Tapestry Project was launching its tour, and Walsall Council’s Creative Development Team were celebrating over 25 years of service as their work finally comes to a conclusion.

Noddy Holder was there! We played to Noddy Holder. Well, kind of.

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.

Looking back while looking forward

We had a lovely time at The Spark in Lichfield last week, and played a pleasant enough first set.

At the end of the first hour, the audience member left.

Shot from the stage. Hello, Lichfield.

Shot from the stage. Hello, Lichfield.

They closed the venue and we went home.

The up side to this is simple – we didn’t alienate anyone with an early finish, and we got a swift post gig pint in with plenty of time.

Obviously the night before Valentine’s Day isn’t a big night out in Lichfield. The people who had said they might come were unable to.

By comparison, our gig in Kenilworth can now be considered a rousing success. Check out the EP from that night and consider downloading a copy. It’s good for the ears and the soul.

If you want that empty room sensation this coming weekend, we’re at the Sow and Pigs in West Bromwich on Saturday March 1st. We’ve managed to convince a drummer to have pity and play along with us, and there may be guest appearances by other friends of ours. This is the heart and soul of the music – make it up and make it good. We look forward to seeing you there.
