I was on my way to feed 'em then remembered that I forgot to mention the Penistone Line Partnership.
They are a group who look after the passengers and rersidents interests along the Penistone Line, which is a railway line running from Huddersfield to Barnsley, through Penistone, en route to Sheffield.
Its a beautifully scenic line worth a ride, made all the more fun by the fact they have many activities running on the line throughout the year, including music trains, which, if you've checked our gig page, we are going to be doing!
We've supported the PLP for a number of years and I can say the gigs on the train are plenty of fun!
There is a rolling bar on board withh the only working beer pump present on the British Railway network (if not the planet), always loaded with plenty of dance inducing refreshments and a guest ale from any one of a number of local breweries.
I've fallen over playing a few times, not due to intoxication I must add, just my own misjudgment of the 'rougher' sections of the line.
All part of the fun I say, with people dancing in the aisles (or maybe they're just trying to stand up, I'm not sure), it makes for a different, but no less fun evening out. You can even hire the train for private parties. Just contact the PLP for details, they'll arrange your band of choice, 'refreshments' amongst other things.
Right, I'm off to feed the guinea pigs now, honest!
Happy New Year to all!
Well, another year passes and onwards we go, striving to play better as every day passes. We've got a few gigs lined up at the minute, we're hoping to get some more in but with shift work and the fact that the rythym section are in about 17 other bands, you can understand it is quite hard to find any free dates at all, so don't think because there's only a few listed we can't play anywhere, we're just not available a lot of the time. :)
Of course, if you're after a night of very good, live music, then check out a couple of bands that knock about the town and beyond who are exceptionally good. I'm not in them so its not a plug for another outfit, they're worth seeing,simple as. The links are below. The audio/video isn't bad on them but believe me when I say the sound is much better live!
Check 'em out!
I'm off to feed the guinea pigs, seeya!
