Live Bands


Recommended Posts

blimey, that could take a while........


first proper gig I went to was INXS at the Royal Court, and up until the last couple of years was always out seeing what was happening.


Most recent band I've seen a lot are Ji.

Did a bit of roadie work for them too. They kick ass in a big way.


and they're local, so well worth checking out if you see that they're playing.

WELL....strange you should mention that cos i had a very drunken conversation with someone on friday night about us doing a south coast tour  :D


if it goes ahead i'll let ya know!!  :D


Look foward to it. Funny story (not actually funny at all but spooky)..last year around my birthday my wife noticed that the legendary prog rock band Wishbone Ash were on tour and playing in Frome which is not a million miles from us. Not her thing at all but said she'd buy me a ticket so I went on line to book. Stunned to discover that the support was the Larry Miller Band, because I went to school with, and was mates with the very same Larry Miller (and his bass player nicked my girlfriend). Found his web site (www.larry-miller.dot whatever) emailed him, met up and had a brilliant night (he also blew Wishbone Ash off the stage!). I would highly recommend, if you like blues/rock and if you ever get the chance go see 'cos he's a class act!!
