Very excited for tonight! Mark has invited his friend Tobias over from Paris (although he is Sweedish). We’re playing the first set at the Yardbird in Birmingham at 8.00pm. We’ve been rehearsing this afternoon. Tobias has written some incredible tunes which we will play amongst some other tunes that Mark and him have chosen.

The line up is as follows:

Tobias Andersson: Guitar, Mark Pringle: Piano, James Banner: Bass, Billy Weir: Drums
