Music News

Charlie Wright's on Friday 7th was a very good gig and a lot of fun with all our fans up and dancing at the end! It was also the debut for new boys Richard, on drums, Adam , on sax, and Alberto on keys. Well done guys, you were brilliant! The Railway Tavern on sun 9th was a surprise gig for us which we were asked to do it at short notice, no worries, we were still warm from friday! That went very well and they want us back. A result!

Then it was the big one, Monday 10th sept, The Bull's Head at Barnes. This is a really famous venue with many international jazz and blues artist having played there including the The Rolling Stones! It has a nice big stage, good lighting and PA, and a really appreciative Knowledgeable audience, I love playing there, a real treat! This was our second date there and we were all really looking forward to it. I can honestly say that we played our best gig ever! All our fans were there in force, and we played our collective asses off!!! We had the audience singing and clapping to our songs, and dancing by the end, absolutely beautifull!!! A special mention to three guests who contributed to a great night. Guitar ace Robin Wilson of London, saxophone maestro Ricardo Ruiz from Madrid, and 'The Queen' the brilliant Ashleigh Brown on vocals from the USA. Can't wait to go back to Barnes!

Charity News

Next month, October 10th there will be a fund raising event for Basil skyers Myeloma foundation (see the COMMUNITY page of this website). It promises to be a great evening of entertainment and lots of fun at the Stage Hotel in Nottingham. If you are in that part of the world its definately worth going along. I think there will be a BIG surprise there which I would love to tell you about, but Soaf wont let me just yet! Thats so frustrating Soaf, please lift the news blackout now! Anyways, you can find further details at http://www.basilskyersfoundation.org/index.php/eventscalendar1?task=view_event&event_id=3

Also from my last blog, dont forget that Liam Conway is doing a charity parachute jump on Sept 30th details here www.justgiving.com/liam-conway.

Finally!

My next scheduled gig is at 'Aint't Nothing but' on November 6th. This is a place I have jammed at regularly for a few years now. I'am really looking forward to this gig and would love to see some of my jamming buddies there. Might even get a couple of you up on stage with me??? We will see! Then it 'Oliver's music Bar' on 24th Nov. This gig will be  a birthday bash/charity fund raiser! Its so near to my birthday (27th Nov) it seems like a really cool way to celebrate and help the Soaf's charity too! more details to follow.

Finally, I have changed my pic on the HOME page of this website. Soaf says it makes me look 'Baadass'! others have started calling me 'The Dude'! Still more have commented 'Nice guitar'! I'll leave you to make up your own minds!

All the best till next time

Cheers Clyde ( 'The Dude' !)
