Blues News From Portsmouth - Novemver 2017

November 2017

Sorry it's been a short while since I emailed the list with an 
update, so have accumulated a few things to share ...

**Burnt Ice 30th Concert**

Many thanks to all those of you that came out to the Burnt Ice 
30th anniversary gig at The Bullfrog Blues Club in September, we 
had a great time thank you for you support. If you subscribe to 
Blues In Britain, you will find and excellent review of the 
evening by Bob Chaffey, a regular supporter of the club. I'll be 
posting it to the website fairly soon...

Andy Thomas our sound engineer for the evening recorded the 
concert in multi track and I have been working on mixing out the 
results, sound very good so far, the plan is to have a live CD 
produced before the end of the year, perhaps including a couple of 
bonus tracks from our trip to France in July. Will keep you posted 
on the progress of that.


My youtube channel passed the 25,000 video views point last month 
which is very gratifying, thanks for you support in that regard. 
The latest video uploaded is a complete set from my appearance at 
Keighley Blues  Live in September. If you follow me of facebook 
you may have heard I had a bit of "fun" getting to that gig with 
the car engine throwing a piston rod through the block just 20 
miles south of Bradford the day before, but with the help of green 
flag I made it there and was able to do the gig as planned. It was 
great gig and a supportive audience, here's the video:
