I am chuffed to bits! The band in the video above is playing at the local Biker Bar in March and I bought meself a ticket. One of my favourite bands from the sixties and I will get to see them play live on my doorstep. Well... two of the original band members which includes Bev Bevan who was also instrumental in ELO. It's a shame Roy Wood isn't with them but I believe there have been 'musical differences' between them for many years so it is unlikely to happen. However, I am excited and Mrs C. was surprised by the speed I disappeared out through the door to buy the ticket. She doesn't like small clubs, finding them crowded and noisy whereas I love small venues. They have a lot of local bands, covers bands (see the gig list) and some original (ish) bands - Peter and the Test Tube Babies are a punk band from the late seventies performing on Valentines Day! Check out You Tube for them. I think I'll be going to see Voodoo Vegas in February because they sound pretty good too.

 It's good to support live music and Yardbirds Club's well stocked bar.

Sounds like fun, actually sounds like something I do every chance I get. I'm sure you'll have a great time!
