Blues News: West Side Blues @ The Fawcett, Reverbnation and more....

Hello, here's a quick End Of Month update.

* West Side Blues Band, Fawcett Inn Saturday 26th February*

The West Side Blues Band featuring Andy Broad on guitar vocals, Tim Nowell on bass, Barry Leaney on harps and our new drummer Tim (who's surname I haven't a clue of, sorry Tim!). The Fawcett has been running under new management for a a few months now, with regular live music, we had a great gig there with Burnt Ice last October, so I'm really looking forward to doing this one with the West Side. To add an extra spin we'll have a guest singer with us for a couple of numbers, Helen MacDougal from MacDiva.

* Reverbnation, Photo Shoots and Recording *

Two new pages at reverbnation, one for Andy Broad featuring acoustic blues and other solo stuff, and another for the Walker Broad project. This will feature our original stuff.

Walker Broad have been quite busy over the last fortnight, with a photo shoot at Waverley Abbey near Farnham (thanks to my nephew Gary Whiting for an excellent set of photos!) and recording sessions at a secret location in Gosport... The photos and recording will gradually emerge over the next few weeks and will surely be featured on the aformentioned reverbnation page, as well as our new website.

After a great first night, The Shawsax Quartet will be making regular appearances at Bar69 in Palmeston Road, Southsea.
