Well, a new years a comin' so there's some new gigs uploaded on the 'gigs' page of the website www.johnnypowell.com ... first up is at the lovely Gaslight Club night at Oporto in Leeds on Feb 6th. Also playing will be the awesome folkster 'Gary Stewart' and the equally fantastic 'Lymon Willis' who are one of the best bands I've played with in the last few years in Leeds. Also coming are gigs at the Puzzle Hall, Sowerby Bridge on February 16th, a cracking little venue, as well as a support slot on Feb 17th at The Wardrobe, Leeds with 'Cherry Ghost' from Bolton who you can see on Jools Holland at the link below:
Following this, a home turf gig with 'Drugstore' at the legendary Hebden Bridge Trades Club!
you can see them here with Thom Yorke of Radiohead:
I'm also planning to play at 'Paradox' poetry/alternative night in Feb or March with 'the big sad face of infinity'. The Paradox nights have got to be one of the best nights going in Manchester at the moment so come on down for a listen.. you never know what yer gonna get!
Oh I should mention that these gigs are more than likely to be in a band format rather than a solo set with the much appreciated presence and skills of Paul Mill, possibly Ian Hinton-Smith and hopefully, Chris Derrick at some of the gigs if they can make em'.
There may also be more gigs that I've forgot to mention as this update has sneakily turned into a ramble.
