Urmston Men’s Club – 27 June 2015

Just come back from playing the Urmston Mens Club in support of The Jailbirds… We had a few guitar difficulties, to say the least. lol… I managed to snap the 2nd guitar string in as many nights on Kevins guitar ( I snapped one at the Steamhouse open mic last night whilst performing “Hoochie Coochie Man”.) I swear, he’s gonna stop me using it. lol… I was able to play a couple of songs on the snapped stringed guitar and then Paul Gee kindly lent me his… Problem solved… Well, no… Unfortunately his guitar had a battery problem so it sounded distorted and started popping and crackling and generally not sounding very nice… Still I played on and got through a few more numbers until Jordan Drinkwater came to my rescue and lent me his guitar… Phew, problem solved… Well, almost… Unfortunately his guitar was tuned down to a lower key and that kinda made my vocals a little weird to sing… I got through it in the end and the people there were very kind and complimentary as always… The Jailbirds were awesome too and played some solid 50’s & 60’s covers (See them if you get the chance.)… The lead singer played bass too and I respect anyone who can do that, I tried it… Yeah, best leave that there. lol… Another great night though. πŸ™‚

I’ve also booked to play a spot in aid of the Dementia UK Charity Event at Tudor Tavern. Peel Hall Road, Manchester Wythenshawe M22 5HB on the 21st of August 2015… I’ll be on about 11ish, it’s a great cause, so I’m looking forward to that. πŸ™‚

I got a chance to talk to Peter Killick (One of the organisers for the Urmston Live Festival.) as well tonight and he informed me that I will be playing at about 5:30pm’ish on the 2nd of August just before The Real Thing take to the stage… Honours all round there then… Seriously can’t wait. πŸ™‚
