Farewell Luke

It is with deep regret that we announce that founding member, bass maestro, harmony vocal ninja and all round great guy Luke Staddon will be parting ways with the band.
Despite significant pressures put on him as a result of travelling to make band practice he stuck with us for many years. Luke has graciously volunteered to remain involved to help ease the transition for a replacement.
The whole band would like to thank him for all of his efforts over the years.

Reshuffling some gigs and some news for the summer.

We've had another reshuffle with the Royal Oak gig on 16th April being moved to Sat 21st May.

The good news is that gave us the opportunity to add a gig at the Queen's head in Winchester on 15th April.

As if that wasn't enough for you we're finalising some news about a festival gig in July and a rally in May so you should have plenty to look forwards to in the coming months!
