All the best for 2018 to everyone, and thanks for all your messages of support, for downloading tracks and coming along to the gigs. 2017 was great in lots of respects. I played some great gigs in a variety of settings and apart from working with my own band, I toured with My Darling Clementine to support the album we recorded in 2016 'Still Testifying'. I enjoyed working with Oo Bop Sh'Bam too, playing roadhouse R'nB for a change! One of the highlights of 2017 was getting to play with Mickey Jupp and Mo Witham at a gig in Eskdale. Mickey plays and sings great, and is still writing brilliant songs - Mo is still playing fantastic guitar - An honour! In 2017 I returned to Queens Theatre Hornchurch for a great gig and will be returning there on 23 April 2018 - book here! I'll have Preben Raunsbjerg, Martin Belmont, Richard Sadler and Neil Bullock along too. We'll be playing a few New Orleans Soul numbers this time.
The big news is I've joined forces with my old friend and renowned writer and director Jonathan Holloway in a play called BADBACK MOUNTAIN "The Rockford Files".
It's a two-hander. We've both written it, and we're both in it and there's some songs too. Tickets are on sale here Omnibus Theatre Clapham. Starts 23 January for a week, then we'll be at The Pleasance for The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018. I'll keep posting any new dates/developments here as they occur.
Here is a pre-release studio version of a track we feature in the show which is free to download:
