16 SEPTEMBER 2020  
HITTING THE ROAD AGAIN

It was fantastic to be back on the road again this week after 7 months of being apart due to the pandemic. Little did we know when we said goodbye to each other after our thoroughly enjoyable gig at Congleton Cricket Club for Congleton Unplugged in late February just what was coming! We should have had 4 gigs in a week shortly afterwards, the first of which would have served as our album launch gig but instead we had to wait until September for our next booking, finally returning to playing live together at The Upside Down Jazz Cellar on 6th September. What a crowd and what a venue! With stunning views across Devon whilst we played it reminded us just how much fun we'd missed. We even managed to play 3 gigs in a week to boot, also taking in a favorite of our's - The Borehole in Stone, playing outside for the first time, and The Gresley Arms in Alsagers Bank where the original incarnation of the band made it's first live appearance over 8 years ago and again the stunning views there where a real treat. Here's to hopefully more gigs to come. We already have 2 dates in now for October at Birmingham Jazz Festival and hope to add more if we can.

See you down the road...
