Welcome to 2013! It's seem the world didn't end and there's an exiting year to come ahead! Lot's to happen, including a tour of Germany with the Walker Broad Band, another tour of France, lot's of gigs in good ol Blighty, radio appearances, and more good stuff. **Radio Play** We've been doing quite well on the radio play front with the new Walker Broad CD, over Christmas sandy was interviewed by Shep Woolley on ExpressFM 93.7 and he played our track "Pointless", Ashywn Smith featured the song "Play Me Some Blues" on his first show of the year (http://www.digitalblues.co.uk/). There's more to come, Sandy was interviewed about her work with the Human Library by Terry Powell for ExpressFM and they also talked about Walker Broad, the interview will aired tomorrow (weds) between 700pm and 8.00pm and he will play "Bordering On Bedlam". http://www.expressfm.com/ And yet more! Walker Broad are really excited to invited to appear on Martin Clarkes Blues show on Radio Wey this Friday. The show airs between 9pm and 11pm, we'll be playing live (really live not recorded live :-)) and talking about our music. http://www.thebluessession.co.uk/ **Gigs** Sunday 13th January Hobbitts Bar & Resturant, Hythe. Andy Broad - Solo, original acoustic and electric blues. This gig was postposned from last year, sorry if anyone missed me that time hope you can make it to this one, always a great atmosphere there, nice menu too! Thursday 24th January The Wine Vaults - Albert Road, Southsea Burnt Ice - Raw Funky Contemporary Blues. Burnt bring their raw and funky blues back to the Wine Vaults for a second visit. We had agreat gig there last time. Good atmosphere great beer. I'm waiting on confirmation for another gig in the Farnborough area in January so keep your eye on the gig list at http://webplus.broad.ology.org.uk/gisglist.shtml **Sunday Lunchtime Blues Jam At The Auckland** You never know what the first even of the year will be like, but this one was a cracker. we were full to cpacity with many variations of blues and some quite blues played. I think everyone got to play, but one or two player singers didn't get to sing as well as play. Too many people to thanks individualy but a great start to the year. Next one is Sunday 3rd February, get there early if you want to play. We try to fit everyone in but if it's as busy the first one, you'll need to be in 1:30 to be in with a chance (but it wopuld be better to get there at 12:00!) Auckland Arms, Netley Road, Southsea.
