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.

recently one of my bands, Velvet Goldmine, has spent some time in the Laundry Rooms with Dan Worrall recording songs for a new album. It was a fascinating experience and the end results are great.
You can hear the fruits of our labours on our new website, www.velvetgoldmineband.co.uk.
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!

Hello all, this is a very last minute post about a gig I’m playing tonight. This time it’s Velvet Goldmine in rock format at Maggie May’s on Trippet Lane, Sheffield. Plenty of your favourite covers tonight plus a few of our original songs. Starting around 9:30pm.
Hi all, my band Velvet Goldmine will be performing in acoustic trio format this coming Saturday at The Greystones (Greystones Road, Sheffield S11 7BS) as part of a charity gig alongside several other bands. Come along for a mix of catchy covers and original material!
Edit: Due to unforeseen circumstances Velvet Goldmine will no longer be playing this gig.
Hi all, just a heads up about my band’s next gig, this time in acoustic format. Join us at the Stag’s Head on Psalter Lane this coming Saturday for set of catchy original tunes and some classic covers (expect some Dylan, The Doors and Bowie).
Any updates will be posted to the Facebook event page here.
This coming week is getting busier from a gig point of view – in addition to the previously mentioned Open Mic Night at The Stag’s Head being hosted by Velvet Goldmine, we’ll also be playing two gigs in one night on Saturday 13 July.
First off, we’ll be playing at The South Seas, Spooner Road as part of a Macmillan Cancer Support fund raiser. Please come along, enjoy some great music and raise some money for a wonderful charity in the process. Expect us on about 7pm. Other performers include Ben Lydiat and The Steemers. You can find more details on the Facebook page here.
Following that, we’ll be heading down to The Royal Standard for a set that starts at about 9pm (let’s hope that all of our gear will fit on the teleportation pads!).
A heads up to both musicians and fans of live music, Velvet Goldmine will be hosting an open mic night at the Stag’s Head, Psalter Lane on Thursday 11th July. Things should kick off around 8pm.
Let us know beforehand if you want to play so we can schedule time for everyone. You can get in touch on the Facebook event page here.
Hello all. I’ll be on stage with Velvet Goldmine this coming Friday, 28th June, headlining a night of live rock music at The Frog and Parrot, 94 Division St, Sheffield, S1 4GF. The night starts at 9pm, we’ll be on about 11pm.
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.
