The blues Volcano rocking out, to Asia’s 40th birthday party bash.
The winter months have been taken up rehearsing a new set with a new bass player and our first gig with the new line up and set was warmly welcomed at a great gig at Ramsey British Legion last month. Sadly though our new bass player Graham has become our old bass player as he decided to leave the band soon after.
So we are delighted to welcome our new new bass player Pete who has done a great job of learning our set in a matter of a few weeks and so far only one rehearsal with the whole band, nevertheless it means that we’re back up to speed for our next gig at the Pear Tree, Stamford this friday 11th May. Look forward to seeing you there!
One minute you’re down in the dumps because your drummers left the band the next minute you’re back up in the ash clouds because a new drummers joined , such is the life of Lincolnshire’s most volcanic rock band. With the current frequency of drummer changes I’m beginning to think from now on for conveniences sake we should just call our drummer ‘drummer’ or to use the over active lovers ploy ‘darling’. Just kidding Adam …..welcome! We had a great session last night and it looks like we will catch up with rehearsals real soon.
George has decided to leave the band due to work commitments but will happily still be playing with our old friends Page8 and we wish him all the best and hugs etc
Happy new year everyone. Things move slowly but surely at the Blues Volcano. True to our name we work to geological time. We’ve been rehearsing since 1968, in fact several decades before George our drummer was even born. The average rock band practice to gig ratio is about 350 practices to one gig. We’re currently at 415,356 to 1 so we’re well above that which is of course how it should be. But hey , 15 songs already under our belt so were easily half way to a set….expect to see eruptions all over the area from the spring onwards. Next practice is tomorrow night which after the long break is very welcome.
