Some of you may know that earlier this year Phil had a health scare and scare us it did. Despite the seriousness of his illness, he only missed one gig as luckily the band had a break in August and this largely coincided with his treatment.
Phil is well on the way to recovery and has been back with us since the break, and is slowly gathering strength (he’s still hopeless, but we love him!)
That’s the good news.
In an unfortunate twist of fate, Dave has been struck by the same illness and he has absolutely no option but to take time out and concentrate on himself. This decision is 100% supported by the band and we wish Dave a speedy recovery and a swift return.
Although the news comes at a busy time of year, with Dave’s blessing, we took the decision NOT to cancel any upcoming shows and continue to play.
After an extensive search for the right person, we are delighted to welcome Danny Shayler to the band! We liked him immediately and with his expertise we will continue to give our venues the great show they are used to. His details will appear in the “Band” section when we can get a decent photo! Danny’s first outing is at The Ranelagh in Brighton on 27th of this month (a great place to start), so come down, take a peek and make him feel welcome. 9.00pm sharp!
