Hi there, friend of FiddleBop!
OK, so autumn is definitely here. Dark evenings. Rain, wind and falling leaves. Even a bit of wintry cold at times (tho' I don't think our kittens have noticed the cold yet, they always find the warmest spot for miles around, a blanket or bed. Or wherever I want to sit).
But a miserable time of year? No! It's the perfect time for a cosy pub with a fire blazing, good beer, and FiddleBop hot-gypsy-jazzing for your delight and edification!
Speaking of which, how about coming along this evening (OK, that's not much notice, I admit) to The George Inn, Lower Brailes, Warwicks? That's Saturday, 9 November 2013... from 8.30 pm FiddleBop will be rhythmically resounding from the bar-room beams in the friendly and comfortable George! Hope we see you there!
More gigs are listed below, and on the always-up-to-date gig list at our website. There are several more before the winter 'quiet time', and our 2014 calendar is filling nicely, including some new 'uns for FiddleBop, such as Upton Jazz Festival next June (no doubt in fantastic summer weather :-), I can hardly wait).
Also we are still busy with recording. We'll be putting together a CD (yes, they still exist; mainly because they are convenient objects to sell at gigs, probably...) so more about this in a future FiddleBop newsletter. In the meantime, have a listen to our recent demo if you have 12 minutes to spare.
OK, we'll be getting our PA (including our glossy new PA speakers, they are Mackie C300Zs if you are nerdy enough to be interested) out from its under-the-stairs home soon, ready for this evening's gig. So that's all the chat for now. On to the FiddleBop gig listings! Remember: please check our FiddleBop website before setting out for any of these, since gigs do get cancelled and timings do change.
Have a good rest-of-the-autumn! See you soon!
Dave and Jo
