Fly-On-The-Wall or a Cake-On-The-Floor's view of a BYs Rehearsal!

For what seems like much of the summer our rehearsals, and gigs... have been blessed with the presence of our lovely friend Dorota. Rehearsals have been transformed into a cake-munching, iced-drink consuming, Guiness drinking session (with plenty of work done as well of course!). She also took some rehearsal photos (come back soon Dorota!);

Of Butterflies and Bands.

A great weekend, a gig in Emma's local with the band. For this gig at The Market Tavern, we tried out the idea of a seperate "acoustic section" of the main set where the whole atmosphere and instrumentation is changed for a portion of the night, rather than mixing it up through the set and compromising on instrumentation. Thanks to the many of you that gave us really positive feedback about this, I think it may well become a regular feature of our longer sets now. Local music fan Chris Salmon filmed us playing "You Want My Head" (not as stated here!) Thanks Chris.

The next day I was stunned to see over 200 Red Admirals and other assorted lepidopterra on a small patch of ivy by the canal, filmed it on my mobile and put it to "Jewel" a song off my "Happy Juice" album :)
