We have been blessed this year with an invitation to play a festival which is fast growing in popularity.
Now in its 11th year, Springstock is an all day charity event run from The Towers Inn in Great Barr.

For those of you who are just discovering this amazing festival, Springstock is a non-profit music festival that in the past has been hosted at a variety of different venues. It is a whole day event starting from 2pm till late.


The festival itself is held in memory of Alan Knowles and Gary Higgs.

We will be playing the 4p.m slot. Hope to see you there.

2011 Updates

Well....its been a while since we were last here.
The band has been really busy increasing the setlist and learning new material as well as gigging our little hearts out. It's paying off and we are starting to get a lot of repeat bookings.

We've been inundated with offers of gigs and have even had to turn dates down (we dont like doing it but we can't be in 2 places at once. Omnipresent we are not!!)

Tuesday 9th November, The Stumble Inn, Cannock

The Stumble Inn is a buzzing live music venue in Cannock. Great staff, great beer and a great crowd.
We were invited along to play a short set to a crowd mostly accustomed to blues and rock.

What a resounding success! The feet were tapping, the heads were nodding and the requests were flying in from all directions.

We started with a shot of 'One Step Beyond', followed immediately by 'The Prince'. Into a rendition of 'A message to you Rudy' with harmonica played impeccably by Phil (guitar), 'Monkey Man' (dedicated to wayne Rooney!!) and finally, 'Nightboat to Cairo'.

Time permitting, we would have happily gone on for the night!

Cannock, you've been a lovely audience. Thank you and goodnight.

We are now hoping to play there again soon

At The Roadhouse, Lifford Lane, Stirchley

Well.....we thought we'd blow out the cobwebs and go play the open mic at The Roadhouse (Monday nights, jam session, very very well organised).

Amidst a night of acoustic sets and blues guitar, we delivered a trio of heavy handed ska classics to an appreciative audience.

'I didn't know what to expect, but it wasn't that!" remarked the compere afterwards.

We will be playing at the open mic at The Stumble Inn, Cannock next Tuesday (9th November). Come and have a look, you may be converted forever!!

World Tour of the Midlands

On Friday 26th November we will be playing a charity gig somewhere in darkest Shirley (no we're not making references to dark Shirley. Sorry Shirl!), Birmingham, to raise money for the donkey sanctuary, swiftly followed on Saturday 27th as part of another charity event at The Boars Head (Taphouse) in Kidderminster.

More details to follow when we get them.

Our debut CD

Work is nearing completion on our much awaited (by us!!) demo CD. The band has spent the last 2 weeks recording, re-recording, mixing and mastering to get a finished product.

Lets hope the wait is worth it. The music is fab.
