First Gig of 2014

Last weekend saw us BR boys back on the gigging scene for the first time in 2014. Our venue was The Union Café Bar in Leamington Spa and the night was run by Matt Hernandez (a cracking musician himself).
It was our first time at the venue and we were shocked at how small and intimate it was. That’s not a bad thing as you get to see your whole audience and feel a little more connected. Matt greeted us with a free drink and the news of FREE FOOD. Obviously we didn’t want to be rude, so we choose a selection from the Tapas menu and it was amazing.

We took to the stage for a 30 minute set and played pretty good. Sure we were a little rusty from our two months of not gigging (or practicing really), but we gave it our all and went down well. New songs ‘Mexico’ and ‘All I Wanted Was A Lover’ made an appearance and they are both starting to feel a little more comfortable in the set.
Overall we enjoyed the night and got some beautiful comments from various audience member. Hopefully we shall see some back at future shows. Also, big thanks  to those lovely people that came specifically to see our ugly faces, means so much 🙂

We recently started back our weekly practice sessions and have concentrated our efforts on new material. Last night saw us taking a stab at ‘No Rope’ which is a Michael penned mid tempo folk tune and my piano based tune (at least on the recording), which is yet to be named. Both could well be in the live set pretty soon.
So for now, chow
