Sunday 7th October saw the Yorkshire gig guide hold their annual Grassroots Awards Ceremony at The Imperial club in Mexbourough. It was a celebration of grassroots music from the Yorkshire region including venues, festival, artists and radio stations. We were honoured to have been asked to provide entertainment along with a very talented songwriter Gary Middleton. It was a fantastic evening and and a well deserved to congrats to all involved. Also we are very grateful to the fantastic Martin Singleton for capturing these shots of us! Thanks Martin!
Hey guys! Some of you know already that Marc and Abi are huge Walking Dead fans! They have been asked to play at Walker Stalker con London twice and have met some of the cast and crew from the show, all thanks to an amazing podcast host called Jason Cabassi! If you like TWD and want to check out his podcast subscribe on iTunes, here is the episode we are on THE WALKING DEADCAST (S8E2) "The Dammed"
Podacsting was cool, we had never done it before but we both really enjoyed it :-)
Some of you may have also seen our drummer has been viciously attacked in an unprovoked act of violence and has been badly hurt, this has upset us all, and we have had to postpone the charity fundraiser on the 11th November. If you bought tickets you can get a refund! Tom is healing at home and is shaken by the whole thing!
Thanks for all of your well wishes for Tom its much appreciated and he has read them all and says 'Thanks Guys'
PS. Also don't forget we only have 16 days left to meet our goal on Pledge Music so if you haven't done so already do it soon

Hello all, we hope that you had a fantastic 2016 and will have an even better 2017. Last year we were lucky enough to headline a few gorgeous festivals, film a music video with our late best friend Buster (RIP little fella we miss you a lot) and release a single and an EP "Walking On The Sky". We also played some awesome gigs and partied with you lot! We did a lot of traveling and we were privileged enough to play our music in The South Pacific, Channel Islands, and around the UK. Along the way we have been busy writing new material and have been discussing starting up a Pledge music campaign to make an album, let us know what you think? So, we plan 2017 to be our new music year, we are still honing our sound and recent works have been largely influenced by world music sounds balkan, ska, reggae. We are having a full band gig on the 24th February at The White Swan in Yeadon (Marc's Home town) and tickets will be available soon we would love to see you all there and if not, don't worry we have lots more live shows in the pipeline. Feel free to comment like and share with your friends and we will see you soon
