Hi, I'm Phil and if you live within 20 miles of Chard I'd love to hear from you. I run the Cotley Live sessions at the Cotley Inn Chard and I'm constantly on the look out for new musicians to join our community. The Cotley is set up to provide a chance for local bands to play and network so if you prefer just come along and talk to the gang. We provide a full PA, lights and a proper live audience. If you are a singer or a solo musician there's the chance to play or sing with our house band. It's a booked in system with most people doing a half hour set but we're up for most things. Sorry though we don't do acoustic or solo acts. It is strictly bands.
I'm currently the bass player with Blackout City and half of the semi acoustic duo Now and Then. I've played in loads of covers bands and playing live music is my love. I'm always looking for the chance to gig and to meet up with like minded musicians. I've got all the gear including a full PA and lighting. You'll find fancier bassists out there but I've got the ability to drive your rhythm section along nicely, a professional attitude and lots of energy. For me music is about fun for audiences and to get lots of bookings. I'm flexible about genre, there are thousands of great songs which audiences love and if the audience have a good time so do I.

I'm always interested in meeting up with local musicians so if you have a project you think I might be interested in then please give me a ring or email and we can talk.
