■ Please Note: Due to the Covid Pandemic in the U.K., pretty much every gig date from March 20th 2020 onwards has been cancelled!
■ Due to the ongoing Pandemic and the new Covid-19 variant in 2021, Gigs for 2021 are going to be light to non-existent too!
■ For the venues that are still booking, please ring or contact the venue before heading out in 2021.
■ On the days when I am not playing live, please check my After Hours page for my live streamed shows.
■ 2007-Present | Solo Classic Rock Gigs
■ My Solo Classic Rock Shows are still going strong, after 14 years of being solo, there really is nothing like it. I love playing in bands, but I also love being solo too.
■ Around 2007, I decided to go full-time as a solo performer creating all my backing tracks myself from my home studio. I still like to dep with bands, and am always interested in dep work, it's great fun.
■ This is the main way to see me playing live, as a solo artist. All of the music has been created by myself, with the exception of one or two tracks from the late great Mick West.
■ All gigs listed below are solo classic rock guitar gigs unless stated otherwise. That means a lot of guitar based material.
■ 2021 | The Launch of After Hours
■ As long as I'm upright and vertical and breathing, I will always favour playing live, either with a band, or solo.
■ However, in March 2020, when the Covid pandemic hit, I suddently found myself without an income from live gigs.
■ I needed something to complement the live gigs, so that when I found myself without a live gig, I could do something else. Enter live streaming and my subscription service After Hours!
■ After Hours allows me to play live to a much wider audience, all for one low monthly subscription fee. Members can chat in real time to others and to myself, and I even take requests from the scrolling side setlist!
■ You can watch my live streams on the days when I am not playing locally or near you, all from the comfort of your own home. For less than the price of a pint you can watch my live streams each week, all for one very low monthly price.
■ Due to the very nature of the internet, you may start to see me integrating my After Hours sheduled live streams with my live gigs. So on one weekend, I may be performing locally, then the next night, live streaming to my After Hours subscribers. It's the way things are going folks, and I very much welcome it!
■ For more information on how to watch these streams, simply head over to the After Hours page.
