So if it's CD reviews you want, we have three new ones on that section, The Houserockers, B and the Bops, and Ezra Lee. There will be more in the next few days as some from the Wild Record Label have just arrived too.
This has inevitably meant that a few have been removed, some compilations, and a couple of band CDs. Those are ones that have been up for over a year or more in some cases, or the groups have disbanded for example.
June has been as busy as always at stage front, and a new gallery of nearly forty images has also been uploaded for your enjoyment too.
There have been some top gigs too. John Lewis and his Trio with Mischief! at the Starfighter in Wreningham, Norfolk, just before Christmas, and the return of Jump Back Boogie at Witham Public Hall for New Year's Eve with the Dogonne Honkabillies. In fact it is the first of a number of gigs for the Essex club in 2016, starting with local band Race With The Devil on February 6th.
Atomic is looking great again. In it's third year, the festival's remit covers the period between 1946 and 1962, and is run over two full days at Northampton's Sywell Aerodrome, with some top music to appreciate and stuff for the whole family. Oh and there's a warm up party the night before in the hangar, with the Jets on stage. Click the link for details.
And then there's the Rockabilly Rave, four days of Rockabilly Heaven in the middle of the year on the longest days. It's going to sell out for sure, so don't be slow in booking, check out the link by clicking the poster.
At the mo, I don't have a flyer for the next Boppin at The Hop event, but check out the event by clicking the flyer for the turns on this time around. All good stuff and a lot of gigs in between as well.
The Bettajive Review plan to be at these events, covering as possible. But there will be some that we will be going to as punters, customers if you will. These twelve years that I've been writing have been full on, and it was our intention to have the Rhythm Riot free of writing and photographing. Sure enough, no one else was there who wanted to cover it for UK Rock n Roll Magazine so we had to, and the resultant review is in the Weekender section of our site.
In the meantime, remember, a Rock n Roll Club is not just for Christmas, if you can, support the scene on as many levels as you can
Cheers 'til next time
