Welcome to this month news letter, lot's of different types of news this month. So I'd best get started. *Burnt Ice* After 15 years solid of playing sax for us, Della Perrett has decided it's time to move on from Burnt Ice. This will allow her to concentrate on her other musical projects, cheif among which is 'Della Perrett's Sweetedge', her band which features her original songs. 15 years is a pretty solid stint for any band so well done Della! You catch the next performance of Sweetedge at the R.M.A. Tavern on Saturday May 31st. *Rocks And Gravel* We just got a great CD review in "Blues Matters" magazine. "Interpretations and instrumentation are spot on, there's some really nice playing here". "Their overall sound is about as close to authentic as three white guys from the south of Engkand can be expected to get ..." www.bluesmatters.com www.rocksandgravel.co.uk *IAC Music Charts* My song 'Pretty Nose' just made another jump in the Blues Genre Charts at IACmusic.com and has reached no 18! That puts it on the first page, definetely the place to be :-) Thanks to all of you that listened.
