And I am off!!!!!
Many months of touring begins with a smattering of shows firstly around Essex before I head to London.
Southend kicks things off and despite competing with a boxing match in the pub I am happy to make much chaotic noise and just over joyed to be playing again.
Being the 1st show of the tour many of the tunes played are making their live debut and to be airing them at all is a joyful din.
Kudos to Iain for booking me and Davey Hal (the support act for the night).
Onwards I headed to Cosmic Puffin Fest:
Had to scale down the rig because it was quick change over so it was all pre 2013 material for that one and then the following night was an all out acoustic show in Billericay. Slowly I’m becoming more comfortable at the piano and a couple of piano only tunes made the set that night.
Following a couple of days parked in the pub car park I moved onto performing in Chelmsford. the Venue was called the Basement and the space was awesome as were the staff.
Some great sets from the supports groups and I braved debuting another newbie. One I’ve been piecing together for months. Work in progress title of ‘The Downfall’ please hear a clip of rehearsal of it from here:
Final show of the Essex run was in Basildon. It was a full rig mega session and I was overjoyed to play a stormer. The audience were really on board and following my departure from the stage I was met with many a friendly face.
Next stop is my brief return to London.
