If you want to see Cory he is returning to the UK (and Dublin) later this year with his band The Funk Apostles.

I've got to say that this was a real treat, all the way from the USA, Amy LaVere & Will Sexton. The couple are touring with dates in Europe and America following the release last year of their album 'Halleleujah I'm a Dreamer.' They managed to fit in one of their performances at Al's Dime Bar, North Parade, here in Bradford during the UK leg of their tour. What did I think? Just sublime!

I had intended to post at least once a week but I'm already behind schedule so I'll try and do a bit of catch up. I spent last Saturday at The Exchange in Keighley where Austrian based band James Choice & The Bad Decisions were making an appearance on their European and UK tour.
On tour with the band was singer/songwriter Perkie who I believe is from Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK.
The band also did a combined set with Perkie, an altogether memorable evening with support from Bradford based Silver Damn Chicks. James Choice have a new CD on sale, I bought a copy at the gig and was given a free tour poster as well. Apparently some of the posters glow in the dark, I haven't checked mine out yet!

Back to the Bill Laurance Group though, and Bill Laurance. All I'm going to say is that the guy plays keyboard for Grammy award winning band Snarky Puppy.
On the drums was the highly acclaimed drummer and record producer Richard Spaven.
And brilliant young percussionist Felix Higginbottom.
As I said earlier this is not a review but there was a fantastic vibe on the night, between the musicians themselves and between the audience and the band, my son Paul who was with me summed it up on the way home, he said "that's got to be the best gig I've ever been to - in my life" and I think I might have to second that.
