Welcome to this months newsletters. After a quiet start to June (just as well as I had a two week bout of flu!) things start to pick up as we move into July and get a little crazy once we get to August! * French Tours * This years solo tour of France has split into 2 mini tours, the first in July the second the first weekend in August. % gigs overall mostly in the southern half of the country. Looking forward to reviting Gabariers, playing at the New MaryJohn in Lamalou-les-Bains, playing two new venues in the Herault area, and returning in August to play a private party for the couple who's wedding party kicked of the French tour thing in 2011! No doubt I'll be blogging my progress as usual, subject to wifi :-) * Gig List * Saturday 21st July Walker Broad Band + guests The Phoenix, Duncan Road, Southsea The Walker Broad will be joined by Rod Paton on French horn and Harmonicas for a gig with a different twist at the Phoenix. Thursday 3rd July Little Jimmy Reed + Bob Hall The Bullfrog Blues Club I don't nornmally include the Bullfrog gigs on the broadology mailing list but this one is a bit special, the real deal, LJM is one of the last players from the golden era of the blues, who took on the name Lil' Jimmy Reed after depping for Jimmy Reed himself during a period of illness, the response was so good that after Jimmy Reed death Lil' Jimmy Reed took up the name.
