Greetings from Wilbury HQ,
The band has been busy in the past few weeks with great gigs on Hayling Island near Portsmouth (Mill Rythe Holiday Village); at Chelmsford F.C. for It’s Your Music; and most recently at the Marriott Regent’s Park for the Heritage Foundation‘s 25th anniversary lunch with showbiz guests such as Barry Cryer, Nicholas Parsons, Su Pollard, Vicki Michelle and others. We’ve become the band of choice for Heritage events over the past few years and have just been asked to headline at their pre-Christmas bash on November 20th back at the Marriott.
Halloween is also coming up soon and we’ll be getting spooky on Sunday 30th October at One Kew Road in Richmond, formerly the legendary Station Hotel where the Rolling Stones played their first gigs in 1962/63. The venue is now a great restaurant & bar with a live room on the first floor, while promoter Paul Endacott also runs the excellent “Swinging 60’s Bus Tours” starting from the Hard Rock Cafe en route to many historic music sites in Richmond, Twickenham, Eel Pie Island etc, ending up at our venue – so you might want combine an afternoon bus tour with our gig the same evening!
Next up after that is a return visit to Tropic at Ruislip on November 11th, a great venue we first played last year. Then it’s the Heritage lunch before we’re back at the Half Moon Putney on Sunday 11th December for a Wilburys Xmas special, while the seasonal celebrations continue at the Boom Boom Club at Sutton F.C. on December 22nd – make sure to book as this one will probably sell out.
Finally it’s great to report that our guitar wizard Dzal Martin has recovered amazingly quickly from an operation to remove a nasty tumour back in August, and is back on form at volume 11 as usual! We also congratulate Bob Dylan aka Lucky Wilbury on winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, those crafty Wilburys get everywhere you know. Hope to see you at one or more of our upcoming gigs, and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook as well.
All the best,
Andy, Dave C, Dave S, Dzal, Glen, Howard & Marko
