Tour dates

October 2017

26

UK – CHELTENHAM – THE BACON THEATRE – LIFTING THE BLUES

OMG This gig has just grown and grown, largely down to the fact its organised by the nicest guy ever, Dave Jones. He has worked tirelessly to raise money for Mental Health. Years and years of concerts with out taking a penny for himself. Suffering Mental Health issues himself and luckily being able to overcome them he wanted to help others with similar issues. He has raised so much money, This concert will be full of people who realise what an amazing thing it is he is doing, it will be sold out as it always is. I think Dave needs a knighthood!!! Every year we have a special guest, last year was Mick Taylor and the year before Bill Wyman. Who knows who it will be this year. PLEASE come along and help Dave and the charity!!
