DON'T FORGET -THIS THURSDAY- (5th Jan) - THE ROBIN BIBI BAND at The Bullfrog Blues Club !!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our Bullfrog Blues Club regulars - and also the "not so" regulars! 
This Thursday 5th January we present our first gig of the year - the fabulous ROBIN BIBI BAND!!!! 
I'm coming over from my home in Ireland especially for the gig, so no excuses from the rest of you!  
Robin's doing a "gig of two halves", as one set will be his superb tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan. 
For those of you who don't know about Robin (where have you BEEN?) he was a 
ember of The Pretty Things, played with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page and many 
any others. A superb gutarist, a fine singer, and a great showman! 
Check out
