On the road in February 

We are delighted to be performing some chilled out, intimate acoustic shows plus a full electric gig in February.

We'll be at The Woodlands in Cinderford on Saturday 7th February, performing as part of a fundraiser event for the Cinderford Music Festival. We'll be all guns blazing, with drums and electric guitars for this show. And we are looking forward to playing some NEW SONGS!!!! Yes, it has been a long time coming but we are desperate for you to hear our new stuff and let us know what you think.

On Wed 11th we return to The Bayshill for our monthly acoustic show, and we are delighted that two of our favourite solo acts - Ben Maggs and Howard Sinclair - will be joining us. We have heavily invested in fairy lights so it should prove to be an amazing spectacle!!!

And on Friday 13th we'll be hoping for some luck at Peppers Cafe. Not really! We love going there as it is such a friendly atmosphere, and we'll be playing an acoustic set with support from Paul Langford. That starts early at 6pm, so come over after work and start the weekend early!
 

Gig Review: The Bayshill, Cheltenham, 8th October 

A night of acoustic music (and some electric) took place at Cheltenham's The Bayshill, fast becoming a hot spot for acoustic acts on Wednesday nights.
 

Courteney Baikie

Tonight's line up opened with Cheltenham's 18 year old Courteney Baikie, who treated us to a set of her own songs and some well known covers. Her smooth, soulful voice easily dispatched classics from Amy Winehouse and more recent hits from the likes of Imagine Dragons. With one finger on the pulse and an eye on the past, it was a thoroughly enjoyable set.

Check out a video of Courteney performing her own song Stupid Love


Next we had a fingerpicking and looping masterclass from David Waddington, easily one of the best guitarists we've seen. Again, a nice blend of originals and covers, my highlight was his set closer Moved.

Check out David's song Moved


 

Rob Lane

Birmingham's Rob lane continued the high quality musicianship with a mix of acoustic fingerpicking and
 strumming, coupled with catchy choruses. Perfect for this venue, his song Very Own Way showcased his talents

Watch Rob perform Very Own Way


Closing the evening were local band and hosts The Drawing of the Three, who left their acoustic guitars at home this month, and brought some electric guitars to the party instead! With their bass player just having recovered from a broken wrist, their set was hurriedly put together in only one rehearsal. Their set featured regulars Broken Walls, Ashes and Fear of Flying - tonight with added effects and distortion more akin to their studio recordings. The band have also been spending a lot of time listening to BBC 6 Music, evidenced by their choice of covers. A blast through Johnny Marr's new track Easy Money, Alt-J's Left Hand Free (particularly relevant to bass player Dave) and reverb heavy Ryan Adams' Gimme Something Good - went down a storm.

If you missed it this time round, check out this monthly night (held the second Wednesday of the month at The Bayshill Cheltenham) on its return Wednesday 12th November. Then we'll be feasting on the likes of Alex Petrie (Stressechoes) and Vince Freeman (BBC1's The Voice).
