AC/ZZuk [AC/DC & ZZ Top Tribute Band, 3 piece]
Double Trouble Bike Rally - Court Farm Country Park, BaNew 23 May 2022Double Trouble Bike Rally - Court Farm Country Park, Ba Double Trouble Bike Rally - Court Farm Country Park in BanwellThankfully the weather held for all the attendees, staff and organisers. It was perfect for the band too as it wasn't too hot but pleasantly cool. A saloon bar that I was told held 120 sheep a week earlier had been turned into a fantastic venue, with a bar, tables, a huge dance area and a decent stage in the corner. Fab lights and a really good PA was supplied and a very good sound engineer, who helped us no end.We were scheduled for an hour set at 7pm to 8pm and we had to adhere to that strictly, which we did, even though it did restrict us a little as every ACDC and ZZ Top tracks we cover are crackers. The crowd in the saloon was well up for it, even that early in the evening we had dancers and people singing along. It was strange to be finished and packed away at a time we would normally be going on. We did our thing to great appreciation and had plenty of enquiries for our services from individuals, other chapters and clubs for their future events, parties, rallies and club meets. Our thanks to Sindy and Dom for the invite and hopefully see them next year, we really appreciated it. Next week another bike rally, this time Tone Vale Tea Rally where we are headlining on Saturday 28th and have 2 sets to get those crowd pleasing tunes blasting out and getting them all involved. We can't wait. LET THERE BE ROCK!Hope to see you at our next gig, which is on Saturday 28th May 2022 at 21 Old Pawlett Rd, Highbridge - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=730735Don
Bar 27, Bridgwater8 May 2022Bar 27, Bridgwater Bar 27 in BridgwaterWe were contacted earlier in the week from Bar 27 and were asked not to soundcheck during the big game (Liverpool vs Spurs) that wouldn't finish until 9.30 which meant we couldn't start at the normal 9pm. This was no problem as we could set up on stage as all the big screens are scattered around the bar but not on the stage. The only thing was, there was no time for a soundcheck, but with the help of our good friend Paul we adjusted a little on the fly and all was well with the back line and PA within about 16 bars of the opener. There were some hardened ACDC fans in as well as a lot of our followers and friends which helped boost the atmosphere even higher. The staff welcomed us as always with a smile and appreciated the fact there was no drama about us waiting for the footie to end.The set was adjusted accordingly and it worked beautifully. We had a great night with singing and dancing along to the tunes as we have almost come to expect. The beauty of a "themed" band is everyone knows what they will get and we never disappoint with the Bon Scott era of ACDC and the classics of ZZ Top. Thanks again to all at Bar 27. Next up is a fab monster Bike Rally. Maybe catch you there at any of the other gigs, of which there are plenty this year. I'd like to mention here that there are tickets to see us at The RBL in Street nr Glastonbury on Saturday June 4th. The gig is to help keep the club afloat. We have contributed a good raffle prize of merchandise so lets all try and help a struggling venue. Too many venues have been lost so keeping an extra open will help us all. See you all soonHope to see you at our next gig, which is on Saturday 21st May 2022 at Double Trouble Bike Rally - Court Farm Country Park, Banwell - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=758095Don

The Lucombe Oak, Exeter17 Apr 2022The Lucombe Oak, Exeter The Lucombe Oak in ExeterEaster Saturday was a lovely sunny day, leading to a fantastic drive down to one our favourite venues. The Lucombe Oak in Exeter. The crowd were with us even while we were setting up and couldn't wait until we started at 9,30pm, one guy even shot off to get his mates as he said they love the bands we cover and there were in the front tables by the start. The reception from Lars and the staff was, as always, warm, welcoming and accommodating. Some audience members had donned their ACDC tee shirts in readiness for the 2 sets of Bon Scott era ACDC and the hits of ZZ Top. We were asked about purchasing our ACZZ tee shirts we were wearing and other merchandise like mugs and fridge magnets, these are in the pipeline and will be available soon. We are also in he process of discussing tracks we want include in a CD which we will start recording very soon we hope.The crowd were dancing from the opening bars of our first tune "Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be", singing and dancing for the whole set including "Legs", "Shot Down in Flames" all the way to the last number of the first set an hour later with "Bad Boy Boogie"! That trend continued through the second set with everyone screaming "Highway to Hell" after getting warmed up joining in with the "Heys" of "High Voltage" and the "Oius" in T.N.T. We ended the evening with a medley of "Give Me All Your Loving" and "Sharp Dressed Man", again with the whole room singing and a packed dance floor.It was a fun night with dancing and singing from a packed and happy crowd, we are back there on Aug 20th but have plenty of opportunities for you to join us on lots of local gigs in the coming months. Hope to see you all soon we hope.Don't forget our next gig, which is on Saturday 30th April 2022 at Esplanade Club, Watchet - details on Lemonrock at:https://www.lemonrock.com/gig.php?id=779310Don
