Live! As opposed to dead!

What about the blues club(s) in your area? Any worth visiting? Blues festivals or events?

Live! As opposed to dead!

Playing at the Tower of Song in Cotteridge again, Sat 18th. This time it's a gig for us. Using a different drummer this time, Wayne, who I've known for years, so I'll be more at ease. I think the other lads will like how he does it as well.

We're here, on the list. Wayne dropped out in favour of our regular drummer. Anybody in the area, drop in, say hello.

Real deep info there Maxx, not. :blink:
I see a nice history of the gin mill you want us to piss in,
but you don't say nothin' about what you band's name is, don't you know. :?:
We're all about, one, two or a dozen nations away from your gigs, so give us some help Bro. :wink:

Arun Bhanot and his Magic Band. His family's Indian, he's dyed in the wool west Midlands. The man can really, really, really sing. If there is any video fotage of it (don't think it's likely), I'll let everybody know about it. Trust me :mrgreen:

And I have friend working on mp3-ing some stuff me and Clive did as well, some of it has come out pure Lomax field recordings. You're surprised? Think how we felt when we heard what we'd done.

Man, I envy you, and anybody who can find people to jam with.

We got away with it, but not as good as it can/will be. We need to be tighter, have better timing on coming in, going up/down on volume, all that stuff. But they seemed to like us.
