First the good news....Well folks......The Bottleneck Blues Club continues!  I have managed to agree a deal with Richard Dobney who is very keen to see the club survive.  Richard is a musician & promoter from Essex, he already runs a few gigs & jam sessions in Essex & wants to expand.  I have agreed to help with the first few gigs & I'm delighted to announce that on .....
Tues 25th Sept _at_ The Roffen, Rochester
The Ian Siegal Band
will perform.
Doors 8:00pm
Now the bad news.....I'll be there!!.....Yes I've agreed to introduce Richard to you all & also help with the set-up so you'll all be at the tables you've grown so fond of.  Please support your club (& Richard in particular) during this important period....we have some fine artists lined up for the autumn season. Those that have "permanent" bookings would you please let me know that you want to continue with these.  Please email me your table/seating requirements as usual for this a few weeks time I shall hand the website over to Richard whose email address will be  richard_at_bottleneckblues_dot_com  at which time my email address will cease to work but I can be contacted in due course on  john_at_jetlinexec_dot_co_dot_uk  this will be active within a month.  So...The Bottleneck lives on!
A brief word about Ian....he has a new CD due for release shortly & this gig is part of the launch.  In mine & many pundits opinions Ian is probable our finest pure blues performer.....he has a dangerous edge on stage & plays some of the most passionate music you're ever likely to hear.  I for one can't wait.  My thanks to Richard Pavitt of Nugene Records for helping to make all this happen.
