Little Rabbit Barn 2019 - 2019-02-25 08:09

Our first gig of 2019 is on the 2nd March although we had an in house concert last week with the wonderful Emily Barker. She was trying out some new songs along with old favourites.
It was great to witness mistakes and all as she played in a safe environment. It was a privilege even.

It was lovely to read these kind words from Reb Fountain prior to our next gig. We must be doing something right...

I am late with this but life can get busy... We were lucky enough to have The Eve Selis Band back for the 7th time supported by The Flyin’ A’s on their second visit.

This was a special and memorable gig considering all Eve has been through in the last three years, we honestly thought we would never see her perform again but she is a fighter and came back with new music and a new perspective on life.

I had six cameras on theses and J has done a great cut to capture the excitement of the night.
You need to see these guys live, and they have a great future if they continue to write and perform like this.

Re: Little Rabbit Barn 2019 - 2019-12-07 20:25

We had the utter privilege of attending a house concert with my friends Lauren Housley and Thomas Dibb where they debuted a host of new material for a forth coming album release.
The material was so good, all of out LRB people were stunned. We shall be booking them again next year if we possibly can, I just wish you all could have enjoyed this material.



Taken in the Rev Pac-Man’s living room in Billericay... The curry food break was amazing too.

If you don’t go to house concerts, your missing out on the best Hi Fi available... period...

Re: Little Rabbit Barn 2019 - 2019-12-13 20:43

Well that was fun, we have booked The Wandering Hearts for a gig on their In Harmony tour.
This was after one of the girls from the band came to see Courtney Marie Andrews with us. She was blown away by the experience and expressed a desire to play on that night.
So, after opening the Box Office at 9 am, we had to shut down all sales by midday. J was on Mobile, Landline and Email all at once as I manned Facebook as best I could whilst working. Bedlam was one of the words he used and we know many people will be disappointed.




Over subscribed again but we are solution oriented and will find a way.

Now if people were as keen to see all the great bands out there live music would be in a much healthier state.

This was a show we thought may never happen due to the tragedies in Eves personal life. Dark Sky Blue is a new song written in honour of her brother who passed in tragic circumstances. Not too many face close ups in the mix as emotions were running high and it’s just so personal. Luckily I had plenty of cameras running for such a special night.

Eve Selis, Dark Sky Blue

Thanks again to Hector for introducing me to Eve and The Little Rabbit Barn all those years ago. An act that changed my life in a big way. Cheers David...

Josh Jewsbury (Bass) stood aside for this number.
