At the end of November the Festive Gigs got off to a cracking start at The Musgrave Arms near Shillington. Now in the month of December the gigs around Christmas are always so special as people want to have a Fun Time! The list below shows a quick list of where we will be over the the next few weeks and we look forward to entertaining you this festive season. For more detail on the gigs coming up please visit the GIG Page for more information. We would like to thank all of you who supported our music in 2016 and wish you a Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year in 2017. Hopefully in 2017 we will be launching our new CD. The date is still to be decided but we will let you know when it is about to escape the recording studios at SoundARC in Shefford.
