December Gigs

So its December next week. Chuff.

Lots of gigs, and lots of new songs across both bands. I'll be playing with Popes of Chillitown on 4th December at Islington Academy, where we'll be running out our new track 'Person Under a Train'. Its early doors, PoC will be on at 5.30ish, so either finish a hard days Xmas shopping by skanking with your gift bags, or use PoC as the perfect launch for a great night out!

The Voodoo Trombone Quartet Xmas Party is shaping up to be the best yet, we're all really excited about it. Costumes and covers are all being prepared for our annual extravanganza at South London Pacific, and this year even the venue are getting involved. The VTQ will be performing with the staff of SLP as they debut the bars signature song 'Dude Wheres My Cocktail?

The VTQ also now has its own facebook group up and running, so go and show some love :-)

Mod It.

Last night I went to a great club night at The Cow in Cambridge, hosted by The Alley Club. Ska'N'B is 6 hours of Jamaican Ska, Blue Beat and Northern Soul floorfillers, and not a duff track played all night. All the tracks played are on original 7 inch vinyl, the whole night is a real labour of love. Its held bi-monthly and only £5 to get in. So I'll see you at the next one, yes?

In gig news, Popes of Chillitown are playing Notting Hill Arts club on Tuesday night. Yes its a school night, but as its a local one for the original Chillitown faithful, we're on at 10.30. New choons!

Finally heres the link for the Voodoo Trombone Quartet Christmas Party. We've started planning costumes and covers, we're determined to top last years gig when we packed the club to bursting. I'll be dropping hints of the songs we'll be covering over the next few weeks...

Christmas Gigs News!

I've just updated the next pile of gigs I'll be blowing at over the next two months.

Included in these is the VTQ Christmas Party, which I can now confirm will be on 11th December at our spiritual home, South London Pacific, in Kennington.  The annual festive knees up will be the best night out you'll have all December, so instead of getting drunk and telling your boss what you really think of them, come to us, and dance like no-ones watching.

Two years ago, we shot Santa. Last year there were questionable drawings of The Chuckle Brothers.
What will happen this year? Be there and find out.
