The Glorious One Eyed Cats-Live

So, according to the One Eyed Cats website they are a …

High-octane rock & roll, cool blues, jumping rhythm, driving rock or a hair-down sing-along, the Cats always deliver.  And deliver incredibly well.

Their large line up is suited to their huge sound, with a fiery brass section, rocking guitar and rolling piano.

Their music is always lively, passionate and entertaining.  They always aim to lift the roof off, rock socks off and leave everybody fully entertained – having had a good laugh, boogie and night.

All with immense enthusiasm, fine humour and unquestionable musicianship.

As cheesy as it might sound, I have to agree!

I was at a gig last week in the Brewery Tap, Peterborough, a very popular and well established pub, Thai restaurant and micro brewery, if you’ve never been before then make sure you go because if you like a quiet pub there’s a spot in a corner for you (they have good beer) and if you like it louder then there’s loads of different DJ nights, soul music, bands, a Prince tribute night is coming soon and tomorrow they have The Peterborough Big Band

  So back to the gig, It was a Thursday of a bank holiday weekend no less, so it was bound to not be a normal Thursday night! The crowd had had food, were drinking after work, any band would do well but the Cats brought a little something different tonight, they have many years of gigging experience behind them and they turned up, plugged in and rocked the place! The Cats filled the dance floor and by end of the night left everyone wanting more. All the band are brilliant musicians, you definitely wont see any backing tracks here, they seemed to enjoy the night as much as the crowd so if you want a good night out go find the Cats and bring your friends! 

Here’s a few photos.

International Womens’ Day 2018

Happy International Womens Day!

 

When women support each other, incredible things happen. 

Let’s not forget that, I know March 8th is about celebrating strong women, equality and many other things but this should be on our minds all the time not just one day!

A girl should be two things: who and what she wants. 

Behind every successful woman is herself. 

You can tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building up one another instead of tearing each other down. 

The woman who does not require validation from anyone is the most feared individual on the planet.

So here’s to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.

The Wise Naive @ Wedfest, Kings Lynn

Last weekends gig was an interesting one in the really pretty St Nicholas’ Chapel, Kings Lynn . I went along to take a few photos and I’m always happy for a chance to listen to some good music!

The Wise Naive are normally a 10 piece band with full brass section and percussion, for this gig they were a stripped back version of themselves but the acoustics of such a unique venue really seemed to bring out the best and they were as funky as ever. More church gigs please!!   Mark Purdy Soul DJ started and ended the night with some classic soul and motown tunes,  perfect for the dancefloor!

I didn’t mind missing the wedding show this time but here’s the links to some of the organisers and suppliers if you’re interested.

The Wise Naive– go see them next time they have a gig!

Mark Purdy Soul DJ, Pia Plum Events, Twisted Melon,

I quite like how dark the photos came out, it was quite a creepy church with all the shadows!
