Thanks for all your great comments about the first of the autumn gigs – The Sage, Gateshead – it was a pleasure to play at that superb venue and to have such an enthusiastic crowd was fantastic.

We’re getting ready to rock a bit more this autumn and happy to announce latest gig at the 1865 in Southampton on December 19th.  We loved this place!

Meanwhile – it’s NL, Germany and France next – should be fantastic!  Hope to see you out there…..

The Citadel……

Posted in News on June 29, 2019 by manewss

Well – what can we say?…. an amazing crowd at the Citadel last night – thank you to each and every one of you who came, for making this, the last gig at this wonderful venue, unforgettable.  A great thank you to the staff there, who have always been professional and helpful and continued to be last night, which was of course very emotional for them.

Thanks also to Steve Pilkington, who was there for the last time with Classic Rock Society, which has sadly had to close it’s doors too. However, it is rumoured there may be something rising out of the ashes on this – so you never know?
