Gig Tonight / Recent Performance / Joanne Kelly & Sony Radio Awards


Gig Tonight

Just to let you know I've got a gig tonight at The Hook and Tackle, Reading, RG1 2LG. I should be playing at 8:45pm. Also on the bill are the virtuosic Raji K, pedal maestro Jacob Papageorgiou and our promoter Jason Riordan, all very talented guys. Details can be found here.

I thought last Sunday's performance went well. The report can be found here:

Last year, Radio DJ Joanne Kelly played no small part in a boost in my confidence by giving a great review of one of my gigs and playing Something Wild numerous times on her Strawberry Sundae radio show .

Indeed late September she even invited me in for an interview (can be found here) which I felt was a great success, and that was largely the result of her detailed preparation and background research (I saw her notebook!).

I know I'm biased because she's been so favouravble to me but I do think she delivers a great indie rock show on a Sunday night, playing established and upcoming acts (particularly from the Reading music scene) and I'm hoping you'll support me in trying to give her a boost similar to that which she gave me by voting for her in The Sony Radio Awards. Do it soon as soon as possible as voting closes on 10th May. Thanks!

Hopefully I might see some of you tonight.

With Best Wishes,
