The look and sound of the king and more ……!
December 29th 2014
Yes its that time again, catch up time on all thatís happening in the rockin world of DAVE B.
Its been another fantastic year 2014 and I would go as far to say its been my best.
My choice of venue's now are more select as i'm very busy with the 2 theatre/band projects.
So on the solo front you will mainly find me playing clubs in the South East with the odd exception where I pack up the donkey and venture further afield.
Had some great solo dates this year notably 2 at the end of the year, Inn on the Park, Deanland was so packed they had to haul in extra furniture. This venue has given me 5 dates for 2015.
Then a PRIVATE date I had at Tunbridge Wells Golf Club in Kent was up there with the best solo gig's I have ever done. Every punter there to be entertained and treating it as there cabaret night, great stuff.
Then we have the band shows. The Buddy Presley Band fronted by me starring in 2 x theatre/club shows called The Buddy Presley Show (myself playing Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley) and Elvis v Jerry Lee Lewis The Showdown (me as Elvis and Peter Gill as Jerry Lee Lewis).
These are 2 great shows with The Harmonaires vocal trio joining us on the former and Peter Gill from the national theatre touring show Rock 'n' Roll Paradise joining us in the Elvis Jerry Lee Show. Peter brings with him a wealth of experience as he tours with a few other theatre shows also including his very own Jerry Lee Lewis Story which I plan on seeing in 2015.
Both shows are getting venues full now. Our last Buddy Presley Show was sold out at the Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham to a very loud party mood audience.
Also our Elvis Jerry Lee show sold out at the fabulous Sterts Amphitheatre in deepest darkest Cornwall, this I would say was my favourite of the whole year.
So happy days ahead, all dates both solo and band gigs are now posted onto my gig guide so for once we are bang up to date as we write.
We will add some photo's for the galleries page something that has not been done for a while.
For more info on the band shows go to the relevant shows on my LINKS page, just click and enjoy viewing.
It just leaves me to say thanks to all my loyal followers who come to my gigs regularly, I so appreciate it. Also thanks to my amazing band mate's Neale, Conrad, Chris, Gary, Del, Ian and David for sticking with me and for believing in our great show.
Also Peter Gill for coming on board and now becoming a good friend.
Happy New Year to you all, see you at a venue in 2015
