October 14th 2013
Hi All. Yes its me again. Crikey it's been a year since the last update how lazy of me. Well again its been a very busy year in 2013 and I would go as far to say my best to date.
This was due mainly to the successful tour i had with The Buddy Presley Band in the Buddy Presley Show and our show with Peter Gill as Jerry Lee Lewis namely The Showdown. These two shows were played to the English public in our Summer Tour culminating in a final date at Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead, West Sussex where a full house witnessed a truly rockin show of nine very talented musicians and backing singers the brilliant Harmonaires.
Well as i write plans are afoot for our 2014 tour. 15 dates have already been secured with a possible chance of more to add. Theatres, Arts Centres, Clubs and Halls are on the agenda including the very beautiful Palace Theatre, Redditch and a return to Chequer Mead. For all the dates for next years gigs with The Buddy Presley Band go to the very informative website at www.thebuddypresleyband.co.uk.
As for my solo show i've had a mixed bag of hits and misses but thankfully the hits outweigh the misses. One of the best gigs of the year was at The Groby Club in Leicester, a packed venue screaming for more, just what the doctor ordered. Also a return to the Trade Union Club in Eastbourne was a fantastic night in September.
The Inn on the Park, Deanland is a great regular haunt now and always a full house and a must play on my calendar.
A new venue is the Heath United Services Club in Haywards Heath where i'm going back to at the end of November and Turners Hill country Club a venue I play once a year was a fantastic night and a return is secured for July 12th.
The gig guide on my site will be updated with not only my solo gigs but that of the band also which makes it easier for my legion's of fans lol. Back to the band we have a massive amount of video's now on YouTube with video's and live clips all in one neat package here is the link The Buddy Presley Band On Youtube.
Well thanks for stopping by and thank you to all of you that come and see my shows I really appreciate it, without you it would be rather pointless I guess.
Till next time stay healthy and most of all keep rockin
