The Fox & Hounds, Church Crookham, 27th April 2012

One of the best gigs we've had at the Fox & Hounds. Very busy night. Unfortunately it's likely to be the last time that Chris and Melanie will be landlords of the pub. They're moving on to pursue other interests. Hopefully the new landlords will carry on having live music. Our next gig there is on the 13th July.

The Swan gigs, April 20th & 21st, 2012

Two gigs last weekend, both at pubs called the Swan. On Friday night we played at the Swan in Hampton Wick, which turned out to be a very good gig considering that we had never met the dep drummer before. Jon Coulson stepped in at the last minute and did a great job for us. A good crowd and Brian, the new landlord, was very pleased with the gig. On Saturday night we played at the Swan in Farnborough (right next to the famous airfield). We've played there quite few times before and you never quite know what sort of crowd is going to turn up. Usually it's a mixture of young and not so young. Saturday seemed to be full of very young things. One of them, in a rather fetching blue dress and dark blue beret kept exposing a rather pert backside to all and sundry all evening. Unfortunately for the band it was of the male variety so we didn't show much (any!) interest. Next Friday we're playing at the Fox & Hounds in Church Crookham, near Fleet, usually a very good gig.

The Horns, Crondall, April 14th

A very good gig at the Horns in Crondall last Saturday. The pub was hosting a 'Plenty of Fish' (dating site) meeting so there were a lot of ladies and gents looking for that 'special' person. I didn't see much pairing off though, perhaps the band were too much of a distraction. Many thanks to guest drummer Nigel Appleton and guest singer/guitarist Chris Moy, both did an excellent job.

Fluke news.

We're playing at the Horns in Crondall again on the 14th April, unfortunately Martin can't make it so we'll be playing with a dep singer/guitarist, Chris Moy. The last time we played at the Horns it was snowing (see photo of Martin) and people didn't venture out for fear of being stranded in the snow. We had quite a hazardous drive back to London after the gig. Recent gigs include the Broadway Club, Fleet, the United Services Club, Fleet, The Swan, Kingston and last night's gig at the King's Head in Shepperton. All good gigs. Upcoming gigs include the Swan in Hampton Wick & Farnborough, the Barley Mow, Shepperton, the Rowbarge, Guildford, a Jubilee street party in Wandsworth and a party gig for the South London Swimming Club at the Tooting Bec Lido. Details of all our gigs on the main website.
