& Now the News
Wow I called this week’s column ‘The Hangover” not because I have one (well I do) but the last few weeks have been so full of amazing gigs, one comes down with a bit of a thud when they’re all done and dusted.
Having said that, I’ve still got some great things coming up with my favourite Blues Monday coming up next Monday. The Extraordinnaires and Ollie McGill nailed the Flying Saucer crowd to the wall last Saturday – I’ve never had a reaction to a gig at The FSC like that one – 2 genuine encores and they still wanted more – after 2 solid hours of music!!!
The new gig at The Victorian Wine Centre was F.A.B. too. It’s a great venue with great food, wines (of course) and real friendly staff. A pleasure to work there
It’s still important to check out the upcoming shows in the giglist. This is the long range sensor for the really faithfull and we’ve always got great stuff coming up. Something there for everyone! So you can plan ahead.
I’m getting a lot of interest in my original songs and very excited at the prospect of my first ever original album (well 90% of it is) which draws ever nearer to completion. Lots of requests now for my songs and people asking to cover them! What we need now is your support by buying them. I am totally independent, I’m not signed to anyone and I don’t use streaming services or itunes, simply because we don’t get payed enough – a basic marketing decision. If you like my songs (and 17,000 + hits on youtube, suggest there is some interest) please support me by parting with a buck for a download from time to time.
You can check them out here (you can listen in full and purchase if you like it)
Many people complain to me that there’s nowhere to go to find good live music. I think, ever since I’ve been listing gigs regularly on my website, I’ve well & truly proven that wrong. We need your support & your bums on our seats people. The talent’s there, the venue’s are open, the beer’s cold, all it needs is YOU!

You’ll find new original music, also my albums, including ‘Together Alone’ with Rhonda Burchmore. You can listen, buy, download, high quality tracks and all the money goes to the artist!!!
