..and Stanley has emerged from the bleak wet winter ready to get back out there again!
We’ve been busy on the new songs front and over recent months have added several more to the list including: Bad Sneakers, Any Major Dude.., Things I Miss the Most, and most recently Black Friday. Always plenty more in the pipeline to get working on, and Aja continues to be a ‘rehearsal-room-dabbler’ with hopefully an appearance in the set later in the year!
Trouble is, we’re now at the stage where we have to leave some quality tunes out of the set to make room for new stuff and to to keep things varied from gig to gig! We all have our personal favourites that we’ve reluctantly had to agree to leave out from time to time. It must be a bit like deciding which one of your kids to leave behind while the rest of the family goes for a fun day out!! Anyway…it’s a good problem to have and hopefully keeps things interesting for those who come and see us regularly.
Sun 23 March sees us back at the wonderful Half Moon in Putney again. Hope to see some familiar faces there as well as some new friends looking for a Steely Dan fix! Check out the venue’s gig list and see some of the great names they have playing there…..thanks to places like that for continuing to do so much for the live music cause.
It’s been noticed that the Steely Dan vibe has been present in a few recent tunes by other artists lately. We’re thinking Pharrell Williams and Mayer Hawthorne in particular. Great to know that Don and Walt’s influence is continuing to infiltrate the charts! If you know of anyone else we should be checking out for SD sounding grooves then please drop us a line!
Anyway, hope to see more of you at future gigs this year. Keep checking the gigs page on this site, and look for our random musings on Facebook and Twitter…..the cryptic photos are getting madder all the time, and we’re not entirely sure which band member is the main culprit!
Keep in touch folks……….and don’t lose that number.
