The Show Must Go On! This Thursday 19 January 2017, we're performing at the Half Moon in Putney. It is with great regret that Dave Gregory is unable to perform after seriously breaking his ankle. We really hoped Dave would heal in time but it was too severe. We all wish him a speedy recovery and he will certainly be back with us when he is fully mended.
We are so fortunate that the mighty Matt Backer from ABC has stepped in to save the gig. We look forward to this British Invasion Show featuring one of America's finest guitarists who has played with everyone from Steve Winwood (it does not get much better than that) to one of the greatest bands from the '80s, ABC. He has it all and we cannot wait to tear the Half Moon apart. All we need is you, so please join us as we perform the greatest songs from the bands that stormed and stole the US charts and minds back in 1964, 1965 and 1966. Tickets are available from http://tickets.halfmoon.co.uk/…/19-jan-17-the-british-inva…/
Happy Anniversary! 30 years and still going strong. I remember the day Nick Dias introduced us. Audible on the new ABC album and forthcoming albums by Jewly Perso, Bill Blue and Nicholas Heyward amongst others.
Yes he is talking about his guitar. His Bastardcaster, to be specific!
