Best band in the northwest territories

Been too busy fighting off the groupies to post a review. My sincere apologies.
Played the legendary venue the Witton bells week last Saturday.
The venue was so packed I had to stand on the Bass cab.
The crowd cheered us onto the massive stage and didn't stop dancing and singing all night.
The landlord didn't want us to stop but after 13 encores we were simply too tired to continue.
I thank you all.
I really should post more of these.

Very true. .A very good point and long overdue! The majority don't though. But the ones that do need to have a word with themselves.

We generally report back on gigs - good or bad, and are inclined to understate the good ones in the interest of credibility, however this weekend:

We were on at The Plough Consevative Club, Darwood, and boy was the place rammed!!
We had no option but to set-up and play on the top shelf behind the bar, and to get the gear in, the punters had to hold drinks trays on top of their heads to form a walkway from the door.
These came in useful later on to accommodate the hoard of excited fans we subsequently drew in!!
At one point, the local Fire Brigade had to be enlisted to dispense beer via a hose, as the club's beer pumps simply couldn't cope.
We closed the night with 280 encores and were signed by Simon Walsh to a £2.5m record deal, but, I'm not so sure if that was kosher - he had no eyebrows and talked with a limp!!
I'd just like to say thanks to the venue, all the punters, the bar staff, the artists who's material we used, the operatives who pressed the discs.............

PS. I used to be guilty of that ^^ until I realised NWB wasn't/isn't even used by x% of musos let alone 'fans'! No probs with thanking folk on FB though...
