Well we only have one more Bond show left at Hideaway tonight so if you want to see the show, better get your tickets booked before they sell out. I thought now might be a good time to drop a little post featuring some of the videos that have popped up from the Bond shows so far and a couple of photos.
The gigs have been fantastic and it has been such a pleasure playing with David McAlmont and Annabel Williams again. Really hoping we get to do this show again soon. Watch this space!
Annabel Williams & David McAlmont: The Man With The Golden Gun
Annabel Williams & David McAlmont: License To Kill
David McAlmont: We Have All The Time In The World
Annabel Williams: Skyfall
And don’t forget our brand new Aretha Franklin show will be debuting next week Thursday and Friday. Featuring the amazing Nina Ferro, Brendan Reilly and a great band these shows are going to be rather special. See you there…
Just a quick post to remind you that our fantastic Bond extravaganza will be returning to the HIdeaway stage for three consecutive nights next week April 18th-20th. We premiered the show last month and it was a huge success.
The show features David McAlmont and Annabel Williams up front and a great band including Janette Mason, Simon Lea, Billy Adamson, Paul Jayasinha, Simon Allen, and Harry Brown. We’re playing all the classic Bond tunes with some awesome arrangements.
Here’s a video of Annabel singing Skyfall from the last show. I’d get booking now if I were you…
Just a quick post to let you know about a bass I’m currently looking to sell.
It’s my trusty Danelectro Dano ’63 bass. The one I used with Duke Special for a few festivals and at the Shanghai World Expo. It hasn’t been used that much though and is in pretty near perfect condition.
Here’s some bumpf about the bass:
The Danelectro Dano 63 Short Scale Length offer heavy retro vibe in a 30-inch scale length bass guitar with a unique and versatile sound!
Based on the Silvertone 1457 guitar which Danelectro produced in 1963 for Sear-Roebuck department store in America, the Danelectro Dano 63 Limited Edition Short Scale bass guitar features several improvements over the originals. The Dano 63 Short Scale Bass uses a plywood frame with pressed wood back and front rather than the masonite found on the original, an adjustable bridge rather than the wooded original, and sturdier tuners. The hollowed non-contoured body is light and comfortable, and adds a bit of top end to the bass tones.
The Danelectro Dano 63 Short Scale Bass guitar features two lipstick style Alnico single-coil pickups, volume and tone pots, and 3-way toggle pickup selector switches.
Body: Plywood frame with pressed-wood top and back.
Pickup: Danelectro single-coil lipstick
Controls: Volume, tone.
Weight: 6.5 lbs.
Colour: Red Burst.
I’m looking for about £180 for the bass. It’s currently got flats on it and comes with a soft case. I’ll even throw in a thin leather strap (you need a thin strap for this bass as the strap button is rather awkwardly placed). It sounds great and is so lightweight you’d hardly know you were playing it. Here it is in action at the Beautiful Days Festival a couple of years ago…
If you’re interested in this bass either let me know in the comments or contact me via the contact form above or via Twitter. I’m currently trying to scale down the amount of gear I’ve got and this one just doesn’t get played now I have my new Fender Precision. If you know anyone who might be interested, do pass on the link.
