Blues News From Portsmouth - November 2005

Welcome to the Portsmouth blues news for November 2005

*CD news:*
As you may have heard I recorded my forthcoming CD at
Littlevillage Studios at the beginning of September.
(Littlevillage is a very pleasant studio in the middle of the
Hampshire countryside run by Tony Farinha of Werewolves of London

The CD is to be titled "Broke Down Engine" and I hoped to have
available by now, however by spooky coincidence my car broke down
last month (with the engine being written off!), requiring a
redirection of funds into getting a new vehicle... This
temporarily messed up the schedule but I am now back to designing
the CD cover etc. and so hope to have the new CD available for
purchase, both at gigs and on-line, by the middle of November.

*Gig news:*

Friday 4th November

The Bent Brief - Lodge Road - Portswood

Andy Broad and Matt Beckwith.

Back to do duo gigs together after a long break, this promises to
be an exciting evening at this established blues venue in

Saturday 14th November

The Square & Compass - Worth promices - Near Swanage Dorset

Andy Broad. Solo Acoustic and Electric Blues

If you not been here before, you've been missing one of the best,
most atmospheric venues in the south. Excellent beer, served from
a small hatch, the audience crowded into the small front room,
with a dinosaur museum out back! This place is worth travelling

Sunday 15th November - Lunch Time 2 - 5 pm

The Red, White & Blue. Fawcett Road Southsea

Andy Broad , Solo Acoustic and Electric.

Another intimate venue, this time a little closer to home :-).
Note this is lunchtime gig, unlike the previous two Sundays I've
done here so don't some down in the evening you'll miss the gig!

Wednesday 7th December - on Stage 8pm

The Grey Horse - Richmond Road, Kingston on Thames

Andy Broad - Acoustic Blues

My first visit to this venue, I'm taking part in one of their
monthly acoustic nights, I'll be one of 4 or 5 performers, it
would be great to see some of you guys up there!

Every Tuesday  at the Kitchndor Southsea

Phil Jones and Andy Broad - Jazz Guitar.

Come down for a relaxing evening of jazz guitar music inspired by
the likes of Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Barney Kessel, Django
Rheinhardt etc. Large tables should take the precaution of booking
in advance but they can usually fit in an extra table for two...
