No Sleep Till Murcia!

Hi groovies, in the words of the song 'Its Been a Long Time'! What have we been up to? Well, our residency at the Railway Tavern in Crounch End is going from strength to strength with the numbers coming along increasing every time we play there. Its a really lovely pub that serves great food and of course great music two sundays per month! Check the side bar for more dates. Been doing some recording too in preparation for a gig in Spain no less. Read on! Music News The band played OLIVER'S MUSIC BAR last April. If you recall we had a brilliant fund rasing gig there last November and raised £400 for the 'Basil Skyers Myeloma foundation' http://www.basilskyersfoundation.org/ We had a great time when we played there again last April and you can see some of the pics here on my facebook page. No friend of mine? shame on you!!! https://www.facebook.com/bbclyde2 The photo album is called 'Olivers Jazz Bar April 2013. We will be back there after the summer hols. We have a really great gig coming up at 'Bread & Roses' pub on Saturday 22nd June. Really looking forward to this one. Once again I'am indebted to 'super wife' Sophia for putting in a word with the landlady and securing the gig. Sophia was there for her creative writing course and just asked for a gig in her own special way, and it was job done! I think she would make a great manager, shame she is so busy! Charity News As some of you know, me and Soaf holiday regularly in Roda village in Murcia Spain. Soaf has asked me and some local musicians to play at the end of a charity fund raising day hosted by Campbells Bar in Roda this coming friday 31st May. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Campbells-Restaurant-Bar-Roda/177811385590576?ref=stream&hc_location=timeline The day promises to be brilliant with a sponsored golf round, followed by carribean food at Campbells, and then live music later on. Its going to be great fun and will raise money too. For this gig I am going to use some backing tracks which I recorded with my band using my ipad based home studio (see last post). I am very pleased with the results, so much better than internet backing tracks which I have used on solo gigs before at Campbells. You can hear one of the backing tracks called 'WOKE UP ONE MORNING' which Ia am going to use at Campbells at this coming friday 31st May. The link to the track here www.soundcloud.com/thevaults-1 There are also a couple of work in progress tracks for the charity cd coming out later this year. Finally.... Did you notice the home page of this website? Yes, finally I have a link to the charity to which I am commited right there on the home page. It had to be done! Thats all for now folks,  Hopefully catch you at a residency gig at the Railway Tavern sometime, and 'Bread & Roses on June 22nd. For now it Adios and no sleep till Murcia! Adios, Clyde
