It is with huge regret and sadness that Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys have announced that they are to cease playing together. Their last gig is scheduled for 8th December at their old stomping ground, Wellington Arts Centre.
The decision comes as the band finishes their seventh year playing their own brand of UK bluegrass. Many miles have been travelled, many gigs have been played, they still are, and will remain great friends who have achieved a great deal together. With other commitments increasingly hindering valuable band time, it has been decided that the band needs a break.
There will always be the possibility that they’ll get together again in the future, but as a great songwriter once said…”A rest is as good as a change”
For 2013, Nick will continue to promote his new solo CD ‘Broken Radios’ (have a look at www.nickgm.co.uk) with a new band and Jules will carry on playing bass with various other people (info and links at www.julesbushell.com). Brian will be taking a break from playing live and Martin will be venturing into some other musical projects. Both Brian & Martin can be contacted by visiting email@example.com. The band’s website will remain up and running for the foreseeable future, and Thunderbridge Promotions will endeavour to continue to promote top quality bands who are passing through the region.
The band wish to pass on their thanks to all the friends and followers they have throughout the UK, and beyond, and for all the support they have been given since their first concert together in 2005.
Their penultimate gig will be next Saturday 17th November at the newly-built Langford Budville village hall, and ticket information is available here
Tickets for their last show at the Arts Centre are priced £10 each and are strictly limited to 100. In support will be’ Jacey & Dan’, a super acoustic duo up from Cornwall. More information and tickets will be available imminently.
