Upcoming gig: Velvet Goldmine at Bar Abbey – 30.01.14

Hello all,

on 30th January my band will be playing as part of a fantastic line up of rock bands at Quarter Till Dawn Rock Night at Bar Abbey.  Other bands playing are JATO, Caspian Sea and Deadset Dream.

For more details see the Quarter Till Dawn event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/474572075986409/?fref=ts

Double gig at The Centre Spot: 29.11.13

Hello all,

This announcement is for a very cool gig taking place on Friday 29th Novemeber at The Centre Spot, 56 Jaunty Lane, Sheffield, S12 3DN. What’s particularly special for me about this gig is that I’ll be playing two sets, one with each of my bands. The fantastic Jamie Ring will also be doing an acoustic set.

So, if you’re a fan of Velvet Goldmine you’ll be happy! If you’re a fan of Heavy Duck you’ll be happy. If you’re a fan of both you’re probably more than a bit insane, but you’ll be particularly happy!

Come along for some great rock and pop/punk music played in a nice pub!

Upcoming gig: Heavy Duck at West Street Live – 29.08.13

Greetings all, tomorrow I’ll be playing a full gig with Heavy Duck, the most recent band I’ve joined. We’re a pop/punk/rock band with some elements of metal mixed in. You can visit our website here (link will open in a new window/tab). It’s a nice change of pace for me as I’m playing guitar rather than keys (though there will be some keyboards parts in future songs).

Tomorrow’s gig is at West Street Live, West Street, Sheffield.

Edit: Due to unforeseen circumstances Velvet Goldmine will no longer be playing this gig.

Any updates will be posted to the Facebook event page here.

Upcoming gig – Royal Standard – 22.06.13

Just a quick post to let my fans know (and I’m sure both of them have been waiting with abated breath) that I’ll be on stage with Velvet Goldmine, supporting UV POP on Saturday 22 June at the Royal Standard, 156 St Mary’s Rd, Sheffield, S2 4AX. Having played there several times before I can say it’s a great venue, so come on down for a mix of catchy original rock songs and cunning covers.

Update: Due to availability of musicians I’ll be playing with Velvet Goldmine rather than The Ainsley Stones Combo. Visit our website for a taste of our music.
