Viva Las Vegas!Summertime Swing 2012Bring Me Sunshine Competition WINNERComing Up Gig Guide

Post-Easter Spring Greetings!

A quick update and new gig guide. There are quite a a few updates and changes o the gig guide so please look through carefully below!

Viva Las Vegas!

Viva!We just returned from our first ever show at the 15th Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend where we packed the house in the main ballroom on the Friday night. It was also great to see fellow brits Si Cranstoun and The Big Six (who haven't played together for over a decade) rock the house. It was like a new British invasion!

We even got to have dinner and jam with the legendary sax man Don Hill of Treniers and Louis Armstrong big band fame. At a sprightly 90 years young he still blows up a storm! We shot a mini documentary of our trip to show you some of the sights and sounds of the weekend so look out for that in a future newsletter!

Summertime Swing 2012

Don't forget the huge BBQ, classic vehicles and lots more happening on the day which promises to be the swingin' event of the Summer!
