Secret Genius [Contemporary Covers, 5 piece]
The New Lowndes Arms, Whaddon - 24 October 202025 Oct 2020The New Lowndes Arms, Whaddon - 24 October 2020 So they let us out again to play at The Lowndes Arms on Saturday evening. Truly horrible weather - heavy rain and storm force winds made using the two big marquees in the pub garden impossible, so we were set up in the fairly narrow conservatory, playing to the main pub through open doors at the end.A brave few turned out in the rain and seemed to really enjoy our set, with many lovely comments and compliments when we finished our set, and lots of singing along (not sure that was allowed in the current virus crisis, but they didn't seem to care). They must have liked us as the pub immediately booked us back for December 19th and also want us for a party.Despite the rain, wind and fairly low turn out, we had a great gig with two one hour sets starting early at 5.30pm in order to get around the 9.00pm turning out curfew due to the Covid virus restrictions.A big thank you to all who braved the elements and came to see us - we hoped you enjoyed the music, and we look forward to returning in December. Also thank you to Mark and his team for making us so welcome.
The Crooked Crow Bar - 25 Sept 202027 Sep 2020The Crooked Crow Bar - 25 Sept 2020 After a 6 month forced break due to the Corona Virus lockdown we played our first gig to a suitably socially distanced but very enthusiastic crowd at the brilliant Crooked Crow Bar in Leighton Buzzard on Friday night.Wonderful to be back playing live again, and a huge thank you to Maxine and her lovely crew for inviting us to be one of the first live acts to be playing there again after the lockdown ended.Thank you also to the great crowd who came along and made us feel so welcome and who joined in with most of the songs (quietly) but had to remain seated throughout - which was a little weird, but there was a lot of arm waving and head nodding going on to make up for the lack of dancing.We are now waiting to hear from our other remaining gig venues as to when they will be opening up for live acts again, so watch this space.
Missing you Lots21 Aug 2020Missing you Lots Hello everyone,Well, it's been quite a year so far hasn't it.Who would have thought at the start of the year that we would spend months in Lockdown and with a virulent virus lose in the world.The band sends it's best wishes and love to you all and we hope that you have managed to remain well and virus free.With the autumn fast approaching we still don't know whether our Autumn gig dates are going ahead or not.Venues are struggling to meet the strict live music social distancing rules and many of the smaller venues cannot meet these rules and still maintain enough customers to make it viable to pay us bands.A few live dates are appearing again slowly and we will keep you all up to date on our dates as soon as we learn if they are going ahead. We are offering to try to help venues where we can on fee reductions and cut down numbers, but in the end, we are in the hands of the pubs and clubs to make these decisions.In the meantime, please look after yourselves, and we miss you all lots. Hopefully we will see you all again very soon.
Covid-19 Disruption23 Mar 2020Covid-19 Disruption Hi guys,We hope you are all well and safe in these very scary and uncertain times.Obviously a number of gigs are now being cancelled and venues have all been shut down due to the current virus scare.Everything in April has been cancelled, but venues are waiting to see how things pan out before confirming gig cancellations in May. Hopefully by then the peak of the virus will be over and we might possibly be seeing some daylight.We will keep the web site and Facebook and Lemon Rock pages updated as things progress and let you know when we are likely to be back entertaining you all.Meanwhile, please stay safe
