Big 10 - Big News

The Saxylizbeth Ska Train just keeps rolling through 2011, and is making a few amazing stops in the next few months. Stopping right alongside ska legends The Beat in fact.

When The Beat are touring the UK in October / November, Big 10 will be supporting them on the East Anglia leg, at The Junction in Cambridge and The Waterfront. The Cambridge gig is going to be such a special occasion that for one night only we're actually beefing up to be Big 11, with a bit of extra brass for a proper wall of sound.

I'm having a great time depping with Big 10, do check them out over on facebook for news on the events and where to buy tickets for all the gigs. The Big 10 Xmas Do is a bit of a Cambridge legend and does tend to sell out sharpish, so get booking early!

Big 10 out of 10.

So I had my first dep gig with Big 10 last weekend, and it was too much fun. I've seen Big 10 a few times, and knew they were a great live band, but to be part of it is an amazing feeling.

With a set including all the hits, from Lorraine to Rudy, Rat Race to Monkey Man, the band love it, the crowd love it. Even their new sound guy loves it, which as luck would have it is the best sound guy in Cambridge, Rob Williamson.

Big 10's next pub gig is at The Dublin Castle, Camden on 28th August, with support from our mutual ska pals, The Skanx (here's the link) and it also just happens to be my birthday, so come to Camden, buy me a drink, then watch me work :-)

Upcoming Gigs

Popes of Chillitown have taken August off to get a shed load of recording done, and finish 4, yes FOUR new songs to be debuted in September. Eyes left everyone, and you'll see where.

PoC are heading to Reading on 2nd September to The Blagrave Arms and we hope to see a lot of the regular crowd there, especially as its FREE ENTRY. (Here's the link) So yeah, are you going to stay at home and watch Big Brother, or bounce round like a nutter?

Yep. Right Answer. See you down the front.
