Hi Justin,

I was going to say "I like your turn of phrase," but I see your comment has been removed. I didn't know that Angloinfo had a system in place where you could remove comments. Anyway, I'm unable to see you this week because I have to be in Monaco but I must come and see you one day. I'm interested in what you do, so please keep me posted.

Hi Bowen, 

I already spoke to you here but have got sorted with a lot of work up to the beginning of October with an old friend from New Zealand. After that I have bookings as an acoustic duo and full band. and need musicians.

We are playing Ma nolans as a duo tomorrow night in Nice 'old town' ( not the port) and Pompei on sunday full band  from 12 am until 4am....god help us!  If you have time come and have a look. I'm connected here for work and I can sing a bit as well . Might be worth chancing your arm.  and I can work a room better than any singer on the Riviera. come and have a look.

Starts at 10pm tomorrow.

No; I haven't found a singer yet. I tried a singer last night but her voice didn't appeal to me.

I'm looking for a guitarist for six weeks busking and then maybe longer in a full band capacity.

I have gigged in Nice and surrounding area for 12 years. But after some storming success last year busking I have decided to concentrate on that along with around 40 gigs in pubs etc over the summer.

I am waiting the arrival of my regular guitarist mid June but if you just fancy playing some tunes we need the practice and I need a guitarist in the evenings. We have a rehearsal space as well just outside Menton which is free.

let me know if your interested or if there is anything else I can help with;

Justin.

Hi James,

At the end of 2011 I met an English girl who wanted to do songs by Joan Jett and also some Ska. This happened to coincide exactly with what I wanted to do so we found a drummer and a good bass player and in January 2012 we started rehearsing. She turned out to be dynamite so we also did songs by Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Brenda Lee etc. and some old R&B and rock'n'roll numbers. Later that year, she went to live in Ireland so after a great deal of searching I found another singer; a girl from Nice. She was great but she didn't get on with the drummer so now we've split up. I have a goal to set up this kind of band. No virtuoso instrumentals (well, maybe one or two just to show that we can play) just songs with a simple melody and a heavy beat; something we can put together quickly, and something that makes people want to get up and dance when we play. I'm determined to succeed on this, so I'm going to keep on trying.
