Freakin brilliant night guys"

EMPIRE, BELFAST

It really doesn't get any better than rockin' a jam-packed Empire, always sold out and always a fantastic atmosphere. What more could we want! Great to see you all and so many old friends that we go way back with aswell. Can't wait to do it all again when we see yous in September!

THE BRICKYARD, CARLISLE

Another fantastic night, well worth the long journey up to Carlisle for our second gig at The Brickyard on Saturday. Huge thanks to an unbelievable crowd who sold out the venue weeks in advance. Sorry to anyone who didn't get a ticket, but we will be announcing a return for later this year very soon so keep checking the website and facebook.

Thanks to Bob who sent us this message:

"Felt compelled to write after another barn-storming performance in Carlisle on Saturday night - absolutely fantastic night and great delivery and choice of songs (slightly different from last Septembers gig which shows how versatile you are). Me and my mates are in our late 40's and early 50's so it took us back to when we first saw AC/DC on the For Those About To Rock tour in 1983. Come back to Carlisle ASAP - we would gladly pay to watch you EVERY Saturday night!"

An absolutely brilliant weekend for us to end the year on, with a sold out Mr Kyps, Poole, and an incredible crowd just shy of 600 at The Robin 2, Bilston.

I can't tell you how much we really appreciate the fantastic support we get at all the venues up and down the country, which I think has made us more enthusiastic and up for it than ever.
The 'Hell To Pay Tour' kicks off this Saturday 4th Jan at The Diamond, Sutton-in-Ashfield so come and have a drink on us & let's rock!

-----------------------------------------

RUSHDEN ROCKS

Any doubts about being too knackered to rock our hardest after humping our gear up all those bloody stairs were soon forgotten as we came out on stage to a completely sold-out, heaving, dare I say throbbing with anticipation, Rushden Athletic Club on Saturday.
Huge thanks to every one of you Rushden Rockers.

Here's what Mel, who promotes the gigs at the venue, had to say:

"GUYS, WHAT A NIGHT. THE BEST SHOW BY FAR TO DATE!! GREAT CROWD, GREAT LIGHT SHOW TO COMPLIMENT. THE BEST TRIBUTE TO AC/DC. ALWAYS A SELL OUT FOR THE MB PROMOTIONS XMAS BASH. HAVE A GREAT ROCKING XMAS. MELV"

OCTOBER '13

THE BROOK, SOUTHAMPTON

Can't tell you how much we appreciate you guys packing the place to the rafters every time. We absolutely love rockin with you all but it makes it all more worthwhile when we get emails like this from Gary who was there:

"Hi Guys just to say what a great gig at the brook Saturday eve, i wasnt feeling to good all day ive had stomach pains for over a week an feeling generally unwell, but thought sod it im going to go so i took my chances and got a ticket on the door, i had an absolutley great time, the pains didnt ease up but i came away really uplifted sometimes in life we just have to do things that go against the grain, thanks for putting on such a great performance, amazing energy just electric."
Cheers Gary.

There you go then, next time you're not feeling too well all you need is a dose of Dirty/DC. Next rock n roll surgery at The Brook, Saturday 1st March 2014.

-----------------------------------------

SEPTEMBER '13

EMPIRE BELFAST - SOLD OUT

To say we had some travel problems would be an understatement, but OMFG was it worth it! When you come out to that sort of welcome from a sold out Empire we'll brave Easyjet f**ing bastards (I'm not bitter) and keep coming back. You guys need to be careful cos The Empire is a pretty old building and you lot "shake the foundations" (see what I did there!). See you all next year, just waiting to confirm a date for September.

-----------------------------------------

BACK IN BLACK COUNTRY

We've been playing The Robin 2, Bilston, for so long now that it's like home from home for us, but we'd like to say how much we really appreciate you guys turning out in such great numbers (over 400 on Saturday) every time we're there. These two messages we received after the gig on Saturday really sum up why we're always happy to be back in the black country:

"Been coming to see you guys for a while now, always thought you were quality, but tonight at The Robin 2, my wife & I firmly agree you are completely on top of your game right now, what an astounding set & you were on fire, absolutely brilliant....we will be back in December to rock with you guys again............keep up the fantastic work, you are #1... we loved it, thank you"
- Paul

"Just wanted to drop a line to let you guys know how phenomenal the gig at the Robin was last night. Haven't stopped raving about you. Thanks...you made an old woman very happy!"
- Fiona

Can't wait to rock with you all again at the end of the year on Saturday 28th December.

-----------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------

O2 ACADEMY 2, ISLINGTON

Thanks to Mark who sent us this message after another great night at o2 on Saturday:
"Guys, Fantastic gig at the o2 Saturday night. You all played brilliantly and to be honest I found myself forgetting I was watching a tribute band and not the real thing. Congratulations to all of you on a superb performance, I seriously believe you are the best tribute band around by a mile, and I've seen quite a few.
I will be back again at the o2 in Nov to see you again, in the meantime keep rockin'. btw please return to The Horn, St Albans soon as poss (my local).
Thanks again, Mark."

RIVER ROOMS

Many thanks for this message from Graham, who was in the amazing crowd for another fantastic sold out show at The River Rooms, Stourbridge, on Sunday:

"Hi guys, went to see you last night at the river rooms in stourbridge. I usually only pay to see the real deal, as I've seen some really crap tribute bands in my time, but last night all that changed for me. There was times when I had to think, well is this a tribute band, you was so good I was completely drawn in. Your whole persona on stage was so good, the way you acted, sang, played, it was fantastic, and thanks for a great night. I will be going to see you again for definite it was just such a good night. YOU ARE THE CURRENT HOLDERS, OF THE TITLE, BEST TRIBUTE BAND IVE EVER SEEN ...YOU ROCK. BEST WISHES AND KIND REGARDS" - Graham Poole

APRIL '13

CENTRAL STATION + THE ROBIN 2

It's a long time since we last played in Wrexham, but after a fantastic night at Central Station we definitely won't leave it that long again! Huge thanks to an incredible crowd who were so up for it that they literally made the place shake, and great to see some old friends too.

Thanks to Mark and Mair who sent these messages:
"What a Band and what a show last night in Wrexham. You Guys Rock!! Brilliant" - Mark
"Brilliant show in Wrexham last night. Had a great time thanks come back soon!" - Mair
Thanks guys, we'll definitely be back next year.

Then on Saturday it was on to The Robin 2, Bilston, where we are always blown away with the number and enthusiasm of the crowd. Again they didn't let us down, rocking just as hard as Wrexham the night before. What a weekend, absolutely knackered but hopefully we'll recover by the time we return in September.

BIRDWELL, BARNSLEY - SUNNY & SOLD OUT

Not only did the sun come out in Barnsley on Saturday, but so did a brilliant crowd to completely pack out The Birdwell Venue. An absolutely fantastic night and we loved every minute of it.

NEW MILTON MEMORIAL CENTRE

A really special night for our first gig at New Milton last night. Thanks to Michelle, Paul, Mike, Steve and all the crew, for their hard work to put on a really spectacular show. Thanks also to the fantastic crowd, which included a couple of guys, Lee & Mike, who were there celebrating the life of their friend Matt, with whom they'd followed the band right from the early days. Matt tragically died in the holicopter crash in London earlier this year and we dedicated one of his favourite songs to him last night. RIDE ON MATT.

"Thanks for the great tribute, I cried my eyes out. We could not have asked for any more, great gig, great sound. Thanks for a great night, I think this was your best set by a mile! Cheers lads, c u at Mr Kyps!" - Lee

"Guys, a massive thanks for meeting with us before the gig. The tribute u did for Matt Atwell Wood was fantastic and heartfelt. The whole experience meant so much to Lee and myself so cheers.
