Happy 2016!

We had a great time in November and December and had lots of memorable gigs including supporting The Young’Uns at Otley Courthouse on their sold out UK tour and at the Sela Bar in Leeds (always a great vibe there!)

So now we are nicely rested it’s time to start thinking about 2016 and all the great fun we have to look forward to.

There will be new songs coming up at our first session back (Monday 11th January from 7pm) – everyone is welcome!

In the 8pm-9pm session we will be looking at 80s themed songs as we plan for special events this year – so watch this space!!!!

Our first gig of 2016 is coming up on 22nd January… we are so pleased to be asked back to play at Cafe Lux and help them fundraise for the incredible work they do supporting people and families effected by breast cancer. We hope you will join us for a great evening!

Here is the set list for those of you wishing to come and play (I’ll be taking names on Monday 11th) :-)
