We hope you're all well! Traditionally, February is quite a quiet time for professional wedding bands, but this month has been an eventful time for Jim's (our banjo/guitarist extraordinaire) home town of Hastings with the 4th Hastings Fat Tuesday.
Now in it's 9th year, the Mardi Gras festival is run locally and has funding from the Arts council, which has helped secure acts to play from all over the country including the festival headliners 90’s power pop rock trio Dodgy!
This one has been bigger than ever with hundreds of gigs taking place across 21 venues, over the five days of this weekend just gone.
Jim even had a new personal best of performing at 7 gigs in 1 day thanks to some great local artist who asked him to play for them in the old town of Hastings including Festival Folks' very own Jamie Smart who has also secured a live slot with BBC Radio Introducing!
So if you're at a loose end next pancake day, get yourselves down to Hastings for an epic party!
