A few photos from Bentley

I know it was over a week ago, but it’s taken a while for these to come in. Mostly camera phone photos I think, but it just goes to show you how the cameras built into our phones have really come on – especially when you look back through my blog (which now goes backContinue reading “A few photos from Bentley”

Fishy Happenings

My third gig with Strangefish last night. It was a long day… I started at 7:30am – I had planned to be at the venue at around 10:30 and with a 2 hour journey ahead I needed to be ready. Freshly showered and breakfasted I set off – only to make much better time thanContinue reading “Fishy Happenings”

New Year’s Eve

New year’s eve this year was a gig in Gainsborough. The last gig arranged by our current agent before we go freelance and head to pastures new. Sadly, because of the timing of everything it’s left us with a rather large 4 month hole in our schedule now, but that works great for me asContinue reading “New Year’s Eve”

It’s strange and fishy

I’ve joined a third band! It was about a month ago when it happened but it started with a message and phonecall out of the blue… And ten minutes later I’m in a band! A band I’ve followed for a long time have asked me to join. I feel very honoured, especially with how atContinue reading “It’s strange and fishy”

Another gig weekend.

A very strange weekend. Friday night was a late one for me. Hannah was in Bridlington and I was called out. A great but busy finish to a hectic week. Saturday Saturday was somewhat of an unusual day. A weather bomb was set to hit us from about 2pm, and sure enough it did. RarelyContinue reading “Another gig weekend.”

An 80th Birthday

It might seem unusual to have a rock/pop band for an 80th Birthday, but the birthday boy has followed us for a number of years now so it seemed apt. The hotel it was held at was a great place. Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”

Lifestyle change is the key.

I’m hardly the perfect advocate, but you know when you see those photos online of before and after? Well these are mine. It’s just over 12 months since I began my lifestyle change from an unhealthy fat potato with plantar fascitis & knee pain to become what you see on the right. It was theContinue reading “Lifestyle change is the key.”

Double Banger again.

Bank holidays seem to have this strange ability to become two gig weekends, this was no exception. Saturday was Ingoldmells – a tediously long drive out there, followed by a rather questionable gig, followed by a tedious drive home and a 3am bedtime. The weather was beautiful though, we sat outside until after 7. TheContinue reading “Double Banger again.”

Double gigger

Friday and Saturday was a double gigger. It’s a while since we’ve done one of those. Friday was a private function in Hessle… A wedding. Saturday was a typical club gig, although this club was rather good. A nice easy load, great staff, nice and clean, and a half decent chippy across the road. ItContinue reading “Double gigger”
