Well nearly time to herald in the Winter with the start of our new season of gigs at The Bottleneck Blues Club.  What joy to have those sweltering days of August behind us.....after a 14 day rain-soaked camping holiday in Dorset (lovely place) in August 1979 I said I'd never holiday in England again ~ the brats had to be kept occupied all day, the beach was just a soggy mass, we had to eat in restaurants all the time, it cost a fortune ~ I've remained true to that & had nothing but wonderful hols since.
So, the kids are all back at school, there are 81 shopping days to Christmas (I've included Sundays) & you're all back at work (ughhh!) the 26th Sept you should all be straining at the leash for some live entertainment and have I got a great start for you.
At The Roffen, Rochester on Tues 26th Sept we have :---
The Ian Siegal Band
Ian is considered by many to be one of the UK's finest all round blues artists.....With his friend Matt Schofield he has been voted one of the top two blues artists in Britain by The Penguin Book of British Blues above the likes of Eric Clapton, John Mayall, Otis Grand & Gary Moore.  Check him out on
Doors 8:00pm 'til 11:30pm
Wine & Dine to World Class music at The Bottleneck Blues Club
If you need a dose of music before then there's still quite a good selection around & about. Two gigs worth a mention are :--
Sat 9th Sept _at_ Crawley Blues Club, Three Bridges Railway Club ~ Jim Crawford  The site says that Charlie Morris is playing this date.....that's is Jim.
And a little nearer home....Sunday 10th Sept The Animals play Maidstone Leisure Centre, Mote Park ~ doors 6:30pm.  It's worth noting that Zoot Money will be on keys for this gig.
Arthritis, hangover, prostate, overdraft notwithstanding, I shall try to get to both of these gigs so hope to see some familiar faces in the audience & indeed on-stage.
Toodle pip for now.....I'm off to Dalyan, Turkey the day after our Ian Siegal gig (I'll catch some zeds on the plane!) to stay in one of Helen & Mike's superb villas.... so roll on the end of the month for two very good reasons!!
