If you're ever in London on a Saturday afternoon wandering Portobello market and Notting Hill, make sure you head to Acklam village! It's a food market with a fabulous space that was once a cinema and now holds a bar and a stage and three different bands giving you incredible music in an incredible space. A real gem, I have seen the line ups for past weekends and cant believe I've not known about this place, its GREAT.... I shall shush now, GO TO Acklam Village ha ha ha ha ha
Sunday night at The Rhythm Riot was a treat and a half; I got to sing as part of the all star Ruth Brown tribute with Shanda (&the Howlers) Tammi Savoy, Miss Lily Moe and Lil Miss Mary. Backed by the Geordie fellas The Revolutionaires and the Velvet Candles we had a blast working together, a truly magical experience!
November seen us play a festival I have been attending for a few years as a punter, The Rhythm Riot. I had always said that if I was to play it I would like to play The Queen Vic which is a bar in the venue as opposed to the main stage in the ballroom as the audience are so close and I love those intimate gigs, we did, and I loved every moment. I had the flu so it was a struggle and I had to leave my friends for the weekend without seeing any shows BUT it was a great gig and a cherry on the cake having my friend Jim Hammond on keys for us. The fellas were on fine form and there were smiles all around!
The Dublin castle
Man, that was one of those that put tears in my eyes. The show was magic, we had Brian back in the chair and everything could not be more perfect on that stage: sorry to everyone else but this lass is the luckiest girl in the world... or at least I was for that there hour on stage! The Right Band blewmy socks off!
Thanks to EVERYONE who came to see us from all over the place! I mean a lot of people made a real effort to get to Camden that sunday afternoon, I'm truly grateful and glad we all got to hang out a while afterward.
It's an iconic space, I've seen a couple of gigs in there and was thrilled to be able to create the atmosphere that I'd experienced for everyone else. Bravo everyone bravo..
Thanks for the party xxx
We LOVE playing The Bear Club in Luton. Only a day after landing from the states we took the long haul up to Luton to perform at this fantastic venue: the sound, atmosphere, audience and beer selection is fabulous... it was our second time and hope it wont be the last! Go there go there go there!!!
