The Leon Hendrix Anniversary Tour

Second gig of the tour with Leon was at The Brudenell club , Leeds.
Once again Leon had the crowd hanging on his every word as he told stories behind some of Jimi’s songs before we played them. This is a rare insight to what inspired Jimi to write certain songs.
An enthusiastic audience had the chance to have their photos taken with Leon after the show and chat about what Jimi Hendrix meant to them.
Only two dates into the tour but it’s already apparent that Jimi fans are hungry for any new insights into the guitar legends life, and who better to find out from than his closest living relative Leon Hendrix?

The Leon Hendrix Golden Anniversary Tour

So! last Wednesday morning at an ungodly early hour i’m waiting at the train station to head up to the Lowry Hotel in Manchester to meet up with Leon Hendrix, (Jimi Hendrix’s younger brother) for a business meeting of which, if successful will be explained in a few weeks.
We played our first show of the tour in Swindon where the crowd showed their affection for Leon and kept him talking into the early hours of the morning once the gig was finished.
The next date of the tour is on Friday 9th August at The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds, so we look forward to seeing some familiar faces there.

WV1 Fest. Wolverhampton

Another weekend, another festival, this time it was a local one for us
The WV1 Festival at West Park Wolverhampton which the organisers have added to their other festivals in the Manchester area, was a well needed shot in the arm for local live music.
Once again the weather was good and the crowds packed into the site making it a sell out.
We met up with so many of our friends from up and down the country that it seemed like a re union, and the day seemed to fly past.
The weekend provided music for all sorts of rock fans, both young and old, and it was great to see the little lads on their fathers shoulders playing their blow up guitars during our set.
Playing on The Planet Stage unfortunately come with some restrictions, this meant no Foxy ladies on stage and no burning the guitar finale!
Mmm! felt as if something was missing to be truthful, but rules are rules.

The Admiral Nelson Festival. Braunstone

What a fantastic day for a music festival set against a backdrop of the  English countryside.
The Admiral Nelson Festival, Braunston was even bigger than last year, and it was a pleasure to asked back for a second time.
The crowd were well up for a bit of Jimi and we really enjoyed ourselves.
So a big thumbs up for everyone involved and especially the sound guys. Great work.

The Admiral Nelson Festival. Braunstone

Well the sun’s shining today and that’s always a good sign for festivals.
We will shortly be on our way to play at The Admiral Nelson Festival. in Braustone for the second year running.
A great festival for all of the family set in a lovely location.
It will be good to shake the  cobwebs off as we’ve not played for three weeks due to band holidays.
Bring it on.
John, Mark & Kev.
