smooth blend of blues latin and bebop at the Kitsch n d'or on Eldon Street,
Southsea. Admission  is free if you want a drink at the bar but if you want
to eat it's recomended to book a table in advance. There is a special

the edxact price off hand...) Check out for more details

Saturday 31st July - The R.M.A. Tavern, Eastney.
Burnt Ice - Contemporary Blues with Jazz and Funk influences.

This has long been our favorite gig, last time it was a packed house so get
there early. (but too early or you'll beat the drummer to te gig). Looking
forward to the oportunity to play full blown electric blues with the full
lineup of the band. If you haven't seen us before expect an exciting blend
of Robrt Cray, B.B. King and Albert Collins, with active bass and a
driving, funky approach.


Hope to see you at one (or all) of the above!
