There have been many great gigs this month with Angel Up Front, The Gravies Jazz Duo, Retro Electro and a new video with The Rhythm Puppets. AND I have very recently been appointed as the Finance and Marketing administrator for the Bristol Community Big Band! A very exciting and busy role for me to be getting my teeth stuck in to.
With 80’s Tribute Band Retro Eletro we had a Sold Out at The Tunnels Bristol where Andrew Thompson took some great photos! Thanks Andrew! 🙂 Plus, we had the honour to support The Blow Monkeys at SWX in Bristol. What an amazing sound system they had!
Last week I was also involved in filmed a hilarious cover of Teenage Dirtbag for The Rhythm Puppets- a great youtube project Danny White has put together. See also Danny’s wonderful blog on the video- ‘Dream or Dirtbag’.
The Gravies Jazz Duo have been keeping busy lately by playing a variety of Care Homes in the Bristol area, which are always a great laugh. We have had ladies of over 80 blowing up balloons, putting them down their top and finding it hilarious, mass dancing circles getting everyone involved and some hilarious comments from a lovely sweet old gentlemen *You are F***ing Fantastic!* *I’ve never heard anything like it!*.
Jazz The Two Of Us will also be making another comeback on Tuesday 24th at Molloys in Bath for two laid back jazz sets starting from 8.30pm. Featuring the very talented Mike Cooper on Guitar and myself on vocals and jazz flute. Do come join us!
Last but not least, here’s a photo of Angel Up Front from a Charity event we did opening Widcombe social club in Bath. My wonderful sister came down with her friend Jess for the weekend and got the party started with our blow up guitars and lots of dancing! 🙂
