Out of Action!
Surgery is looming. I’ve been needing surgery on my right hand for a while & I’m about to go under the knife early September. This will keep me out of action for at least 2 weeks. I should be back to normal come the end of the month.
Apologies to anyone who has tried to contact me through this site recently. I found out that my domain host – UKC names has not been forwarding my emails. I’m glad to say that all should be okay now. If you don’t get a reply within 48 hrs from [email protected] please contact me through the contacts page by clicking here.
This is the first time I’ve had a chance to update the page since I got back from holiday. Good news is that I’ve just joined up with my great friends Edinburgh’s foremost soul band “This N’ That”. So I’ll be playing guitar with them for the rest of the year.
This N’ That will be playing at the Leith Dockers club along with “The Hipple People” on Sunday the 18th August. There are only a few tickets left so be quick if you want to come along. There are a couple of numbers you can try if you can’t get in touch with me. Dockers Club 0131 467 7879. Hipple People 07885 428074.
The Big “O” Show: My tribute shows to the legendary singer Roy Orbison are going down really well & starting to gain a lot of interest. I now have a page dedicated to just these shows, including some videos from previous gigs. I am intending to do a tribute to his “Black & White Night” with a full band sometime next year. I’ll try to keep you posted about that…… when I calm down a wee bit……. Lol Check out the Tribute Page by clicking here.
Riverdale Suite: I did my usual stint at the temporary home of Murrayfield Wanderers Rugby club for the Welsh Weekend on March 9th at the Riversdale suite. Once again great night was had by all! There will be a fund raiser for some of the team heading to the World Cup in Japan later this year. The date has still to be arranged but I’ll keep you informed.
Home: I will be home for August 2019, so I’m really looking forward to the Edinburgh Festival. I was away for the Fringe last year & really missed all the fun. I love the fringe festival & go to see as many shows as possible. I’m intending to post a few show reviews on the site so keep checking in for what’s my “Best of the Fest”.
Fags n’ Matches: Thanks to everyone that came along to the “Fags n’ Matches” gig at the Maybury Casino on 2nd March. It’s great to see all the fans that have supported the band from their heyday of the 60’s & 70’s & It’s great that the band is still going after all this time. The band is taking a break for the summer but will be back giving in December. You can check our web page by clicking here for our next event.
