I'm playing this festival with Musical Youth.
Big festival calls for one of the big guns so a great time to try out my redwood and ebony series europa. :-)
If you are local and can make it, come down and say hi.  http://www.solihullsummerfest.co.uk/line-up/saturday/

Tonight I'm depping on bass for a Drifters and classic soul band called Soul Kinda Wonderful at the Livestock Festival in London. On stage at 8:15 on the main stage.
Weapon of choice, Series II Europa!

Just got a message today, we " Musical Youth" are opening for UB40 in London at the Electric Brixton Town Hall Parade, London SW2 1RJ, England on November 8th. Nice high profile gig so that looks like a date for a series bass!!!!

Nice! I remember seeing UB40 ca. 1982, before Red Red Wine saturated everything, when they were still mostly political and very raw. One of the top 10 shows of my life. The big songs were Tyler, 1 in 10, King, ah, such a great show!

Cheers Edwin, I was always a Wailers fan and big into Bob, Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer also Burning spear. UB40 and Musical Youth ald also Steel Pulse,(although I haven't played with them), are all from my home town and I have also toured with Pato Banton and Apache Indian over here and stateside too. So it's cool to be able to experience some aspect of their success. It would be great to open for UB40 in our home town in front of a  home crowd! That would be awesome. I better check where they are playing.

I saw BM&W in 1979. Hm, I think I mentioned that somewhere. Amazing show.

I opened for Burning Spear in San Francisco in the late 90s. My band had nothing to do with reggae, more like singer/songwriter world music, so it was an odd pairing (The Wailers closed the night).


I saw Steel Pulse many times, from about 1982 on, and got to be friends with Amlak for a bit when my band played a few festivals that they played at. A fantastic band.


And yet it still remains, I'd love to see YOU play!

Ha, be careful what you wish for. If we play stateside again it will be posted up on here for sure.

Sadly the gig has had to be cancelled, the guy whom the benefit gig was in aid of has had complications with his condition overnight so a decision was made by the organisers to cancel the gig.
