A quick word on how it all works for us in getting gigs. We do this in our spare time. In our normal lives we run businesses, have families and generally do lots of juggling. We are also spread around the country. We have a stark choice with what time we collectively have left, which is very little. Either we plot some time for the odd get-together and rehearsal, or get some dates in for recording our next release, or we try and get our diaries lined up for a few weekends to do gigs. Strategic weekends seem to work with a few months notice. We don’t have a booking agent and approaching any venue we’ve never played before is akin to cold-calling. Luckily, we’ve built up some wonderful relationships with other bands, venues and promoters in various places through the years and this occasionally means we get to play gigs in places where people want us to play. There’s no rhyme or reason to this, but suffice it to say, we dearly love playing and gladly do so whenever we can wherever we are asked. So you’ll probably guess that pulling together a couple of weekends of gigs in and around Yorkshire where the majority of us live is going to be easier than a Wednesday night in the South East where four of us would have to schedule two days off from our day jobs. We are always open to playing and love gigging more than anything else in the world. So if you’d like us to appear some time near you, maybe you know a promoter at a venue you would like to hook us up with who wants to take a chance on a little old band that make a total racket one weekend.
