Blues News From Portsmouth - Novemver 2017


November 2017

Sorry it's been a short while since I emailed the list with an
update, so have accumulated a few things to share ...

**Burnt Ice 30th Concert**

Many thanks to all those of you that came out to the Burnt Ice
30th anniversary gig at The Bullfrog Blues Club in September, we
had a great time thank you for you support. If you subscribe to
Blues In Britain, you will find and excellent review of the
evening by Bob Chaffey, a regular supporter of the club. I'll be
posting it to the website fairly soon...

Andy Thomas our sound engineer for the evening recorded the
concert in multi track and I have been working on mixing out the
results, sound very good so far, the plan is to have a live CD
produced before the end of the year, perhaps including a couple of
bonus tracks from our trip to France in July. Will keep you posted
on the progress of that.

**Videos**

My youtube channel passed the 25,000 video views point last month
which is very gratifying, thanks for you support in that regard.
The latest video uploaded is a complete set from my appearance at
Keighley Blues Live in September. If you follow me of facebook
you may have heard I had a bit of "fun" getting to that gig with
the car engine throwing a piston rod through the block just 20
miles south of Bradford the day before, but with the help of green
flag I made it there and was able to do the gig as planned. It was
great gig and a supportive audience, here's the video:
