As the coronavirus spreads it's going to be harder and harder for us musicians to make a living so if you have enjoyed the content of this blog or some of my videos or enjoyed my gigs in the past please consider making a donation, "every little helps" as a certain supermarket likes to say and would much appreciated!
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. http://www.macdiva.co.uk
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. Featuring Chris Shaw on sax and Andy Broad on Jazz Guitar, they are backed by Tim Noweel Bass and Trev on drums (why is it nobody tells me the drummers surnames?) and play Smooth
Jazz, Bebop, Blues, Bossa. Check out the Bars Website for details of their excellent menu. http://www.69castleroad.com
Next gig is Wednesday 9th March, music from 8.00pm till 11:00pm
Here a quick round up of the gigs coming up over the next couple of weeks...
