HERE COMES THE SUMMER!
The sun is shining (for now) and it's great to be taking the Verbal Warning show outdoors for you.
This Saturday (18th) we will be the final band on the big marquee stage at the Long Eaton Carnival on West Park.
It is a full day of music from 2.15pm and we are onstage at 9pm after the mighty Sharp Class.
Then over the weekend of 7th-9th July we will be at the fantastic Rock n Bike Festival at South Normanton's Carnfield Hall along with the likes of Anti Nowhere League and the Animals.
We are not sure of a stage day/time yet but we will be on Thursday or Friday and will let you know as soon as we do.
We will be delving into our huge Premier League size squad of two guitarists to bring you the legendary Sam Hadfield for both those shows. He will be back on board again in August too while Steve Harding laps up being at Beautiful Days in Devon.
VW will also be on at this year's Whitwell Festival on 9th-11th September when we will be on the outdoor stage on the Friday night.
There are some great bands on with us including Neck, Splodgenessabounds, Headsticks and Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies along with top tributes Badness, the Killerz and more.
And, as always, we have plenty of pub n club gigs along the way.
This Friday, for the second time, we have been asked to be the entertainment at the Long Eaton & District Pool League presentation night.
But the gig is open to everyone. So, if you have no interest in pool, but want to see VW in a big room on a big stage on Friday then head down to Sawley's Soldiers & Sailors Club where you will be made very welcome.
Admission is just £3 and our first set of two will be at 8pm.
We still have another 24 gigs to come this year including what should be a classic – supporting XSLF at Nottingham's legendary Foremans Bar on Sunday, 18th December. What a night that will be.
Thanks to everyone who watched and danced to us at Glastonwick Festival near Shoreham by Sea last week.
And thanks to Pete Connor for some ace photographs of us in action in the gallery above!
To us that was one of the best if not the best Glastonwick yet and it will be interesting to see it how it works being moved into the neighbouring barn on the farm next year.
And well done all for drinking the place dry! All beer and cider sold before the last day of the festival. At the same time we hope that doesn't happen again next time!
