Feedback from the lovely Lynne at last Saturday’s gig:
“It was a fantastic evening and so many people commented on how much they enjoyed Second City Soul. Everyone thought you were brilliant as I knew they would.”
Thanks to all you beautiful people who came and partied with us at Akamba last night. Hen parties, Stag nights, Birthdays…we had it all. Big thanks again to the Akamba staff for looking after us, we had a great time!
We had a great time in Solihull playing for Tarmac at their summer celebration – We even got a little two-step action on the go!! Looking forward to tomorrow’s gig at Akamba!!
Friday night saw the band travelling over to the fabulous setting of Pendrell Hall to play at Michaela and Anthony’s wedding. Michaela booked us two years ago after seeing us play at her sisters wedding! Not the best start to the night with our bassist Tony being delayed with a puncture on the M6 Toll. We then had to deal with a unpredictable noise limiter at the venue (which went off even when we weren’t playing). However, nothing EVER stops the Second City Soul party and Michaela & Anthony and their fantastic guests all joined together to celebrate their wonderful day.
We had a fabulous time playing at The Westmead Hotel for Laura and Ged’s wedding on Friday night! A great couple and lovely guests! Huge kudos to Sol Morgan for doing an amazing job in depping for Fedal on vocals!!
Second City Soul was honoured to play Akamba’s 10th birthday celebration on Saturday 6th June. A wonderful day, we played alongside some outrageously talented acts and helped celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the charity in Dickens Heath in Solihull. Have a look at the great pictures taken by our friend Russ Hollinshead.
The first few weeks of the 2015 sees our diary starting to fill with a load of recent bookings. Last year was fantastic in terms of gigs and we were truly blessed to have played in front of a load of really wonderful people. This new year looks to be heading in the same direction. Fab! We start the fun off on the 31st January at Akamba in Solihull. A fabulous venue and a great crowd. Why not come and join the party?
After a busy summer bringing the funk to the people, we had a bit of downtime but are now back into the breach with rehearsals for the run up to Christmas and beyond. We’ve had such a great time in 2014, we’ve played some epic gigs for some truly epic people. REALLY looking forward to the next few months.
Saturday’s wedding in Pangbourne for Jen and Wes was brilliant! A beautiful day, a beautiful couple and fantastic guests!!
We’ve a couple of weeks off now as our guitarist; Paul, is going to be a Stem Cell/Bone Marrow donor this week!! An amazing thing to be able to do but he’ll need a little R and R afterwards!!
Top work Paul!!
Here we go folks, we can finally reveal our finished promo in all it’s technicolor glory. We had a great time a few weeks ago recording it with the wonderful people at Mushroom Studios in downtown Brum. We’re really pleased with it and hope you are too. Please feel free to let us know what you think.
View it here!
We spent Sunday just gone in the studio at The Mushrooms studio in downtown Brum laying down some tracks and videoing our new promo. Such a fun filled day, we had a great time and it’s sounding awesome. Keep em peeled here on the site and we’ll have the finished video up in the next week or so.
