The Continentals - New Name For The Rhythm Kings.

Portsmouth based blues band "The Rhythm Kings", sometimes advertised as
"Andy Broad's Rhythm Kings" have decided on a change of name.

As they are now working regularly with their new drummer Russ Tarley, the
band decided on a fresh start with a new name. The decision was taken
shortly after their last gig at The Boarhunt Village Blues Club but as
always finding a name for the band is always the hardest part of being a
muso and so the name wasn't decided upon untill last weekend.

"The Rhythm Kings" did their last gig under that name at the Blues At The
Fort Festival (Fort Purbrook Cosham) on Friday 19th September and the first
under the new name "The Continentals" on Sunday September 21st at the RHU
bar in Basingstoke.

(BTW both gigs were excellently attended and the promoters went out of their
way to make the bands comfortable and ready to play at their best.)

"The Continentals" next gig will (appropriately) be at The Boarhunt Village
Blues Club on October 17th. The club is held at the Boarhunt Village Social
Club, North Boarhunt, just north of Portsmouth. Ring Steve on 02392 254 909
for ticket reservations.
