Look out for the bucket

A first time in Pershore at “The Plough” saw the introduction of the Bucket.
Not Mrs Bucket but Ian’s bucket. Ian is attempting a world record with 800 other drummers in Manchester on July 15th, proceeds to charity, so we’ve bullied him into doing a drum solo while we take a bucket round to collect loose change for MS – the chosen charity for the event – more details here.

A big thanks to all who donated and all guest singers including Jo who sent us a very nice message after the gig. We’ll publish the full collection amount as soon as we can around the 15th July.

It was a brilliant nite, great band,great fun will definatley go & see then again…well done boys!!!!! x

The new management (Damion) wants to get bands established Saturdays and Sunday pm’s.
See our Gig List for future dates at this venue and we look forward to playing there again soon.

Almost June

…and about time we updated our site with some news.
Ian has settled in well and is now part of the furniture. Talking of furniture, see his new drum kit. Really gives the sound a satisfying thwack. Note the scaffolding for the cymbals. Mind you he has to use a cut down version for some of the smaller venues we play at. Ian's Ludwig Epic Kit

Playing a lot more than in the past the band has got a lot tighter musically allowing us to develop new numbers again (at last). Look out for:-

• “Ruby” – Kaiser Chiefs
• “The only thing that looks good on me is you” – Bryan Adams
• “Don’t look back in anger” – Oasis
• “I Gotta Feeling” – Black Eyed Peas
• “Easy” – Lionel Richie

Plus work in progress U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”.

New venue for us –

New Venue in Kidderminster, The Boar’s Head, and what a venue this is. It’s good to see a dedicated music pub kitted out with a good sound system, great sound man and a few skeletons of bands that did not go down so well.

Boars Head Kidderminster

We had a great night there and looking forward to the return visit on Friday October 12th. Stay tuned to our gig list for full details.
