2022 – Finally hitting the road with The Kut. Not the Danko Support tour, but a headline tour funded by the National Lottery Revive Live Tour Scheme. I also feature on the Kut’s latest soon to be released second album. This was great to be involved in. More to follow soon.
Winter 2021 – New project that I have been involved with The Vampirettes played their first show in October. Been a long time in the making, but we pulled it off to a packed house at The Cavern – Not Liverpool 🙂 It was a fun early Halloween show. Even the audience came in fancy dress which was pretty cool.
2021 – Late summer I was asked to join the Nancy and Dolls – and played out their remaining dates for the year, some great festivals and venues including the legendary 100 Club in London. Looking forward to being able to play more shows with girls in 2022.
This tour has now been moved to December 2021 – all being well ….
Happy announce that I will be hitting the road with The Kut.
After recording tracks for the album their Valley of Thorns which has been very successful since its release, it has been nice to go back and play some of these songs again.
July has been a good month, and it isn’t over yet. Had some great gigs with The Dolls, The Speak and Joe Jammer. For Photos click Gallery tab. A sold out (Sex Pissed Dolls) gig in Brighton at Concorde 2. Next morning down to Hove Lawns for Disabled Pride with The Speak, then swiftly off to the Robin 2 in Wolverhampton with SPD in the evening.
Next up was PennFest, again a great line up bands, We played the Big Top Stage. Hopefully more photos to come.
2019 – It’s July and this is the first update! More videos done and still more to do. Recordings I did a while ago are soon to be released finally. Many gigs with Joe Jammer through out the year and also with The Speak. This month I’ll be back working with The Sex Pissed Dolls. It will be nice to play a run of shows with them. Yesterday we played Kubix Festival in Sunderland. So many great bands were on that bill. Check the line up here –
2018 ended with some shows with The Speak, Joe Jammer, and a last minute show with The Sex Pissed Dolls up in Morcambe. Also a top 20 album in the official UK album chart reaching no 23, with tracks I had played on for The Kut’s debut – Valley of Thorns. It sounds great.
The Red Paintings were voted in top 5 live shows in Germany for 2018.
Had some good shows with The Speak, Sex Pissed Dolls and Joe Jammer over the summer. Coming up TRP returns to Germany.
