17th March Grove Road Street Festival 

At last after 5 years of playing London twice, a St Patricks weekend Irish Tour twice, and a St Patricks weekend tour in New York City, we are once againplaying in our Home town of Northampton. Yippee!!

This is going to be a big one. The Swan & Helmet has managed to get a road closure which means they are having a street festival. how cool is that. and what is even cooler is that we are headlining. There's going to be some serious Jumpin "n" Leppin that day.

Those of you who have tickets,well its going to be an epic day. Those of you that didnt get tickets your going to miss one hell of a party.

Just in 2 more Festival Gigs this summer 

Two new festlval dates to share with you all Folks. Firstly Sunday July 2nd the Northampton Town Show and Balloon Festival.

They get massive crowds at this festival so were looking forward to it.

Sat 23rd September see's us appear at the Bugbrooke Beer festival just outside Northampton, its a new one for us but the organiser's told us they cant wait for us to play as they have been after us for a few years but we could never fit them in. But this year we can!!!
