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.
Cheers,
John, Mark, Kev & Leon.

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.
Cheers.
John, Mark & Kev.

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.
Cheers.

Well the sun’s shining today and that’s always a good sign for festivals.

A great festival for all of the family set in a lovely location.

The Horn. St. Albans. 9th July. 2016

It was nice to play one of our old haunts, The Horn, St. Albans on saturday, and though everytime we go back there has been some alterations to the decor/layout, one thing never changes. . . .
Bill “The Sound engineer.”… Well maybe even that’s not stricty true, as he now has a beard of
ZZ Top proportions.
It was also great to see our mate Andy Gray, guitarist with Letz Zep who came along to see us as Letz Zep were having a rare day off. Always a laugh when we catch up.
We stormed through a two hour & thirty minute set, which I think is a record, but I enjoyed every minute, and judging by the crowd reaction, so did they. lol
The Horn was our last gig for the next three weeks as we are taking band holiday and will be off in search of some sun. 🙂
Next gig will be at The Admiral Nelson Festival. For ticket and band info please go to

Cheers.
