Thanks for checking back in on us.  The Band have been taking a break since late 2014, however we are getting itchy, not in those intimate places but itching to make some noise.  Guitars are being re-strung and polished, drumsticks being whittled and vocal chords being exercised.  Knobs are freshly oiled and being twiddled and drum skins re-stretched

It appears playing rock music cannot be parked, set aside or forgotten, (Now where do plug this damn wire in ? )

We have talked, and had a beer or two and just maybe retirement is for wimps (perhaps!)  Watch this space ...........



What's it all about then?

Rock music is a genre of popular music that developed during and after the 1960s, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States. It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll, itself heavily influenced by rhythm and blues and country music. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of other genres such as blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical sources.

Musically, rock has centred around the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with bass guitar and drums. Typically, rock is song-based music with a 4/4 beat utilizing a verse-chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse and common musical characteristics are difficult to define. 

"Rock places a higher degree of emphasis on musicianship, live performance, and an ideology of authenticity than pop music"
