Wow, we can’t quite believe its 2018 already, it seems only a few weeks ago that we were writing our first blog of 2017! As we did last year, we thought that writing a blog reflecting on some of our favourite 8-Ball moments of the past year is a good way to set ourselves up for the year ahead.
This year, we played a myriad of great venues. We're sure must have been one of the busiest wedding bands in Sussex. The list includes stately homes, farms and barns, marquees and this year’s first… a cricket ground, how’s that for variety?!
We also enjoyed getting a fresh photo shoot in 2017 from the brilliant Adam Prosser:
However we also had the opportunity to take our music to the seas as 2017 saw us play our first cruise as a band, providing some of the musical entertainment on the Rock the Boat cruise in September!
We spent a week gallivanting around the tip of Scotland and the cultural hubs of Liverpool and Dublin. We got to play loads of great songs, meet a load of ace musicians and a lot of time relaxing… While we have enough hilarious stories from our maiden voyage to fill the next decade of 8-Ball blogs, we’ll save those for another time and leave you instead with some of our favourite snaps of the voyage:
Beautiful views of the Isle of Skye from the warmth of the hot tub.
Relaxing on deck.
With bookings already flying in for 2018, we can't wait to see what craziness this year has in store!
We'll see you all at a show soon.
