Hi guys, unfortunately the Quiet Riot and Festiv-Isle gigs have had to be postponed.

This means our next gig is currently at the Sandgate Hotel on 28th June. We have also just been confirmed to play the Two Counties Music Festival in Bewl Water on July 11th!
Howdy! We decided to take a break from gigging during January but we have been hard at work making plans and booking gigs for the year ahead.
