Just like Premier League, The Martin Smith Band have had a little winter break. We went into hibernation after the super-fun Christmas Party gig at Soper Hall. Tomorrow evening we will rub the sleep dust from our eyes and start rehearsals for our 2020 schedule. At the moment we have dates lined-up for March and April and there’s more to come. Also, we are working on an exciting “spin-off project” … more news on that soon! By the way, you can join our “fan club” and get direct updates on our latest gigs etc.: https://mailchi.mp/4e6dab10ee34/msbfans
We are thrilled to be the live band performing at Surrey and South London Rhythm and Blues Club’s second annual “Rhythm and Blues Christmas Party”.
That’s at Soper Hall, Caterham on Friday, 20th December. Door open at 8-m.
This is great, friendly little club with a fabulous atmosphere and a growing reputation for staging superb live music nights.
Details of tickets etc can be found on Ticket Tailor here.
We are thrilled to say that the “Gin & Frolics” evening at Soper Hall, where we had the privilege of providing the live music, raised over £2,000 for St Catherine’s Hospice.
What is more, it was a great evening. We had a real blast playing to a fabulous, friendly and appreciative audience.
Some video from the night can be found here.
