Rosellys's first show of the Album Release tour at
London's award winning venue The Green
Note in Camden on 21st August was a
fantastic sell out show.
Thanks to Amy at 'Nashville Over Here' for a fabulous review.
As a band The Rosellys are impressive musicians who
clearly love to perform. Simon and Rebecca turn out songs
with smart and sassy lyrics that make you think and smile
in equal measure.
The BonTemps Playboys got together for a
second reunion show this year on 15thAugust at
The Golden Lion in Bristol. A most enjoyable gig.
My summer kicked off in fine style, playing five sets at the excellent Maverick Festival.
Three Chords and Truth have reviewed a number of
Maverick acts including Don
..class act.. ..epitomised the carefully
selected American artist who fits the ideals of the
Maverick Festival and Bob Collum
..was a joy to behold.
Despite awkward logistics a really fun day at Truck 2015 on the 18th . A couple of sets in The Saloon with Don Gallardo & The Rosellys, the evening rocking out with The Clubhouse All Stars, a real hoot. Great to watch friends playing great sets, The Redlands Palomino Company The Dreaming Spires & Danny and the Champs.
After a hiatus whilst the recording of their forthcoming
The Granary Sessions was completed, The
Rosellys are back on the road and opened a fabulous
show for The Dreaming Spires and Don
Gallardo at The Louisiana in Bristol.

The BonTemps Playboys reunited again to play a show at the 22nd Gloucester Cajun & Zydeco Festival. What a fun hoot! Maybe we'll be asked again next year.
