Smoke and Mirrors Album Launch Party
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came down and supported us at the album launch in London on Saturday night at The Garage London. The atmosphere in the crowd and onstage was something very special and will remain with us for a very long time! New bass player Patrick Bennett made a tremendous debut and Steve Clark has now become a vital cog in the rhythm machine of the band. It was also a slightly poignant occasion for us as ‘Big John’ (John O’Neil) has decided to step down from his role in helping the band with the live shows. He has been with us from the very start and it certainly won’t be the same without his calming influence in those stressful gig situations! We look forward to seeing John enjoying the shows from the audience in the future with a nice pint of cider!
A big thanks to our special guests The Last Cry and Gary Le Strange for helping us to celebrate the new album in style and both played fantastic sets, very much appreciated by all of us. Kevin Burtt from Bas Productions also produced some fantastic visuals which really enhanced the show, very much appreciated! We must also thank Frank Drake and staff at FLAG PROMOTIONS > Gigs, Clubs, Tours for helping make the launch such a success. As always our lovely ladies did a tremendous job in difficult circumstances running the merchandise stand for reasons that we’ll elaborate on in another post!
Finally, we must say a massive thank you to our PR manager and also artwork co-ordinator Cheri Freund who works tirelessly on our behalf with unlimited patience and understanding of the sensitive ‘artistic’ types that we are sometimes! So pleased to have Cheri here in the UK to help us celebrate our 3rd album finally coming to fruition after 3 years of hard work.
See you in 2016 – Pete & Geoff xx
