We just returned form an 8 show tour of the UK, from the coast of Devon to lovely Leeds, we covered a lot of ground but managed not to hit any wildlife which is always a plus. We started our tour on the Devon coast in Ilfracomble. The festival was great but we never thought we’d find a place with worse weather than Ireland, just kidding but seriously we couldn’t recommend it enough. We then headed off to play the legendary 100 Club in London which was one of the highlights for us. We were in awe to be walking int he footsteps of giants. One of the lads commented that Mick Jaggar and Paul McCarthney had probably used the same toilet in the dressing room, thats probably the closest we’ll get to either of those. So then our next stop was The Tunnels in Bristol , a place that looked like it could survive a strike by Kim Jong Un, what a great little venue right in under Bristols beautiful train station. We were blown away by the great crowd. Next up Greystones in Sheffield, lovely little venue with some great beers on tap, we had a great time playing over 2 hours of originals for the thirsty buggers there. Next up was Yardbirds in Grimsby supporting the legendary Patron Saint of Irish Guitarists Pat McManus formerly of Mamas Boys. Pat is alway an inspiration to us and what a great band he has. Off we went then onto the Leopard in Doncaster, a great little spot and another whopping 2 hour set in a great sounding venue with a great audience. Last but not least it was the Duck and Drake in Leeds, set in the heart of the beautiful victorian city we were treated like kings by Andy the staff there. They even had Pies waiting for us when we arrived. I don’t think they even knew of our obsession with Greggs. Speaking of which, a lot of Greggs was had along the way and many a cup of Yorkshire Tea and not to forget the good pints of Ale. What we enjoyed most was the great audiences and the music lovers we met along the way. Rock and roll is alive and well on these isles. Until next year.
