PAST GIGS and EVENTS 2019
Very sadly for the band, but not for Mark, Mark has moved his life to sunnier climes, namely, Cornwall. We thank him for his great service to the band over the past coupe of years and wish him and Jane all the very best in their new lives. The band had a final gig for Mark on 5 Jan 2019 at the Duchess of Kent Pub, Bradford which went down so well that we were immediately rebooked!
The band warmly welcomes Adie Humpoletz to the band who has fitted in so quickly and quietly with most of our tracks well known to him. We are very lucky to have found such a high quality bassist in such a short time which has allowed us continue gigging with practically no break. We are looking forward to a great rocking 2019.
May 25 (Sat), The Queen's Crafthouse, Doncaster
A really really great crowd spurred us on through the whole night, dancing and singing all the way through to our finale of A whole Lotta Love and Whole Lotta Rosie. Really really appreciative and a pleasure to play for. We hope to return one day in the not too distant future.
It was certainly a cosy little corner!
Three videos from the night:

May 18 (Sat), Private Birthday Party, Leeds
A great party set up by Kate for her dad's birthday. It was held upstairs at The . Don't think the venue was ready for the sound of rock! But the party crwod loved it and danced and sang from start to finish. It was nice (for once) for the band to be offered food and drink too. Thank you Kate.
Unfortunately, our videos did not come out well enough to use, so here are three stills and some audio.
PS It was a pleasure to play with Mark again (on bass) who came up all the way from Cornwall to help us out as Adie was unavailable. Don't give up your day job Mark - LOL!
May 4 (Sat), Private Birthday Party, Ripley (Derbs)
A great time was had by all at Ron and Ruth's Wedding Anniversary Party down in Ripley (Derbs). I think we blasted a few old ears early on but by the end, the true rockers were clearly apparent as they danced the night away to ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC!
April 13 (Sat), Brewery Tap, Idle,Bradford
Brilliant gig in a brilliant venue that supports live music every single week-end of the year.
Great music loving and very appreciative audience who seemed to love every moment of the show which went really well with the band giving one of its best performances ever.
March 8 (Fri), Horse & Groom, Doncaster
Stood in at very late notice due to a cancellation. It was Adie's first full "two set" gig and he did brilliantly.
It was a great pub with a great appreciative crowd even dancing during the sound check!!!!
Everybody enjoyed it and we are welcome back anytime, though they have a very busy schedule!!
The video attached is of WISHING WELL. There's only one video because we were unable to get the video recorders the right side of the PA speakers, so the vocals are a little quiet. Shows off the band well though.

February 9 (Sat), Dewsbury SC, Dewsbury Rd, Leeds
Charity gig in support of the RSPCA we accepted mainly to give Adie and airing and settle his nerves which went to plan.
We were lucky to have a sound engineer provided who got an all round balanced sound for us. We played a great 45 minute set with all of us enjoying ourselves and, in particular, I think, Adie! Confirmed our feelings that Adie was the right man for the job!
Thanks to Mandy for the audio/visual recordings!
