It has been a wonderful start to Spring, projects are certainly starting blossom with my new originals band ‘Apostles of Chaos‘, making a fantastic start to the year with two great performances. The first was this years ‘Fusion Festival’ in Stourport, there was a fantastic line up of bands including ‘Godstick’s’ and ‘IT’. The Second performance was a support gig for the legendary Martin Barre of Jethro Tull! It was certainly an occasion, performing to a sold out Cititdel in St Helens. It will be a night, I will certainly remember.
I’ve been gigging fairly recently with my covers band, ‘Limited Edition’. It’s nice having a band that plays some varied material, I enjoy the change in tempo and the variety of gig’s. We’re returning to the Taproom at Batley on the 21st April, it’s always a pleasure playing at a venue that’s welcoming, and very close to home.
Teaching has been steady away recently, I’m teaching anything from ‘Metal’ to ‘folk’ songs on Ukulele, so as you can imagine lessons are varied! I’m still enjoying the challenge, and it’s wonderful when I see my students doing well!
Looking ahead I can only see things getting busier, Apostles of Chaos and I are set to record our debut tracks ahead of our Album release. This trend will be reflected in gigging as we’ve got many new and exciting gig’s lined up!
