ABOUT

have decided on the strength of 'reunion gig' in January that life begins at 60....I was there in the 60's
vocal/frontman with my band Soul Society........into the '70s with 7 piece Image......and have rediscovered the drive to have fun reviving the good times.......This project would best suit guys who are not looking to any great financial gain from the result..............Its primarily about 'keeping your hand in' , and pub / club type gigs when there is a repertoire that is worthy of the efforts............I have become involved lately in the Pompeypop / Pompeypoppix project, and know that right there amongst those that were involved, is a ready market to exploit the fun and good times from putting this together , and a platform to launch the band from..............Small brass section (sax) is in the loop cos soul aint quite the same without it.............adding to post latest update as of April 2016....After spending some time fitting in a new keyboard player ,regrettably he has had to take care of health issues and so we are looking to replacement on the 88's
anybody fancy joining a band of 'young' upstarts.....again
I would put a tick in the 'soul' box, but there isn't one !!!!
SITUATION UPDATE .......as of this week 7th sept 2016
After managing to fill our keyboard position and getting 'back on track' ,or drummer has had to give up the project and we are now in need of a new stixman Someone who likes a bit of funk /soul with a blues feel Anyone in and around Pompey that fits the bill...lets have it !!!!!
another update....may like to join established outfit to do the soul thing....having apparently lost keys and bass to other commitments....(end of march 17)....We were doing so well !!!!
to kickstart the project again ,would like to hear from any 'elder statesmen' proficient in the areas of keyboard or bass or indeed drums who need to relieve their boredom....... any takers ????
