Well done the few

The Blokes warm up back stage at the Colston Hall

Well done to the "few" who made it to Bristol's Colston Hall to play our part in the inspiring Bristol Festival of Song.

Wading through big city Bristol traffic on a midweek school night is not for everyone but a valiant and sufficiently large enough number of the gang were able to get there in time to witness The Gasmen and The Filtonaires entertaining the early evening crowd.

As we were on stage, a mystery announcer voice told the gathering throng that the doors for the Steve Earle concert taking place in the main hall would not be open till 10 past 7, which to our benefit meant that some of that crowd started milling about on the stairwell to watch us whilst they waited.  The fact that most of them hung around to listen to us well after the doors opened is valediction of the entertainment value of the blokes in full flight.

Thanks again to Hannah the Director of Bristol Festival of Song for inviting us back again.

Our next scheduled public appearance will be at Cirencester's Sundial Theatre on Friday 27th November and will be a DOUBLE HELPING, double the number IN the group, double the numbers FROM as we do a two full length feature sets - it is shaping up to be a "MONUMENTAL" show.  Already 20% of the tickets have been sold and the best seats are disappearing FAST so if you are thinking of coming, book now to avoid disappointment.
