SUMMER UPDATE

Hi everyone
I know things have been a little quiet from the front-line here, but other than the regular gig to gig stuff there's not been a lot to write about.

For those of you who have seen Smokie in concert recently, you may have noticed a new member onstage due to Terry having the need for a minor operation. I'm glad to report that Terry is now very well and rejoined the band this week at the Convention Centre in Sri Lanka. Trerry has an infectious stage presence and it's great to welcome him back.
I personally would like to thank David Levi for his confident and professional contribution on the last few gigs as always he is a pleasure to work with!   Anyone who's heard my solo album will be familiar of course with David, he also makes a contribution to my new album "Under My Skin" which I'm hopeful to have some news in the next couple of weeks, in terms of a release date.

As I look ahead to Autumn, I'm planning my rig for Australia. In Sri Lanka, I've used my Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 36 again, so that will also go to Australia. In terms of a spare I've recently latched on to the Bluguitar Amp1 . . . . an unbelievable small 100 watt amp that fits in a gig bag. click here for details.

So don't forget, keep an eye on the date sheet for changes, and get your tickets early if you want good seats in OZ !!!

    Thanks for the compliment David, I'm glad yo enjoy my blog! Whenever new blood is introduced to any existing band with a long history, it's sometime difficult for that musician to make and impact. However; I feel like I have tried to make a positive contribution on both the live shows and the various albums and DVD's I have played on. . . . . I hope that continues.

    Hi Barbara. At this current time, there are ongoing discussions to bring Smokie to Hamilton, but as yet we still await conformation?
