Blues News for January 2014

Welcome to 2014 and a Happy New to you all.

We have busy start to the year with a quite variety of gigs. European tour
planning is progressing, it's all looking good, if it would just stop
raining all would be sunny....

* Guitar Lessons *

Want to learn finger style blues guitar? Learn the tricks of slide playing
in standard tuning?  Doing block bookings of 4 lessons for 60 in advance
or just pay 20.00 per lesson as you go.
I've only space for 1 or 2 more students so don't hang arround, get in
* Gig List *

Tuesday 28th January
The Platform Tavern, Southampton
Walker Broad Band

Walker Broad are very pleased to be asked back by Bob Long to be the special
guests at this months Platform Tavern Jam. We've down it before as a duo
and decided it would be nice to it with the whole band this time. (The
advantage of a cajon playing drumer) One or two sets of music from Walker
Broad with jamming. Come down and play come down and listen.

Sunday 2nd January
The Auckland Arms, Netley Road Southsea.
Andy Broad's Sunday Lunchtime Jam sessions.

Next installment of the monthly jam. We had a good one to kick the year off.
Come down and play or listen, all welcome. Mostly blues but were not
prejudiced against other genres. :-)

See you all at a gig sometime!
