Blues News From Portsmouth

After a slow middle period to January the gigs are really picking up with a
totally hectic weekend to come at the beginning of  February. 

Here's what were up to.

* Thursday 31st January
The Half Brick, Worthing
Rocks And Gravel - opening for Chris Farlow, Miller Anderson and Bob Brookes

We'll be doing our acoustic set tonight joined by Blackie (from Burnt Ice)
on percussion. If you had tickets for the previous gig when Chris was
delayed at Heathrow, I understand that they are valid for tonight
performance, otherwise it's 
12.00 to get into the back, bar but you can see us for free!

* Friday 1st February
The Lamb Hotel - Hartney Wintney
Andy Broad and Matt Beckwith
Acoustic blues with harmonica.

Back up the M3 to one of our favourite duo gigs!

* Sunday 3rd February Lunchtime 12:00 - 2:30
The Florence Blues And Jazz Jam - Florence Arms, Southsea

A couple of hours of laid back jamming hosted by Andy Broad

* Monday 4th February
The Fat Fox - Junction of Albert Road and Victoria Road South, Southsea
The Continentals - Featuring Andy Broad and Buster Wingham

Texas and Chicago inspired rhythm and blues and the newest of the Bullfrog
Blues Club Venues. Great real ales on sale, with a great music room with
stage and a good view, and plenty of seating.

* Tuesday 5th February 
The Kitsch n d'or - Eldon Street Southsea
Andy Broad and Mags Wylie
Jazz Guitar and Bass, another set of mellow bluesey jazz and latin.

So that's 5 gigs in 6 days not too bad but it leaves Saturday 5th free, so
why not get down to the Nelle Gwynne in Southsea to see Della Perrett (sax
player from Burnt Ice) perform with her band Sweetedge, playing her
acoustic orientated original material.

I challenge you to do all six! (but it would great to see you at just one or
two :-))


STOP PRESS: Just taken a booking for February 14th at The Keystone,
Portsmouth Road, Guildford so the rest of feb is shaping up well, more
details after the weekend.
