The one where I’m really chuffed about the website….

Posted: February 15, 2011 in Just another Day...

Yep….that’s the one lol… I’m very pleased and want to share it with you all. The new website has been live since 28th Jan, that’s just over two weeks, in that time we have been visited by 850 people and had 2204 page views. I’m gobsmacked by the response and also by the amount of people who use our site. Don’t get me wrong, I know that it’s a great way to check out the gig guide and news etc but WOW! – that’s a lot of people. If you haven’t checked it out yet and want to see what all the fuss is about then head on over to our new site at www.thebrickmakers.com

As for everything else since the launch, well its been a great couple of weeks, I love February, obviously being the month of Lurrrrve with Valentines day and also because its my birthday at the end of the month. We have a brilliant tribute band – ‘Maetloaf and his band the Never Neverland Express’ booked in for my birthday weekend, that means a lot of fun and a brilliant band. We booked these guys for Brickies birthday party two years ago and they blew everyone away. I mean, I have seen Meatloaf in concert and this guy has more meat than the real thing… I definitely think he would give the actual Meatloaf a run for his money. The band and the girl singers also make it an experience not to be missed. It’s on the 26th Feb by the way and if you’re free  please come on over and have a pint with me, I van guarantee I wont be working that night… I’ll be down the front with you guys singing my head off lol. 

We had the new Floyd tribute band in last weekend, now this one I would be very interested to hear your comments on if you have a sec.  For the last 7 years we have been lucky enough to have dates with the awesome ‘JUST FLOYD’, this week we tried out the local Floyd tribute ‘PURE FLOYD’. It was a brilliant night and their set was perfect, it’s a tough call to say which one I prefer personally as I feel that both ands have really good points. This new band had the edge as to be completely honest, it was the female backing singers that made the night for me. Having said that,  if ‘JUST FLOYD’ had the female backing singers too, they would also be complete.  I find it quite vital with a Floyd tribute, their backing vocals are so strong both on recordings and in a live situation, if you are going to go out and try to imitate a band of that stature, it’s got to be done right. ‘PURE FLOYD’ have got as close as I’ve seen any tribute get on the local pub circuit.  We would definitely welcome any comments on this one, if you were here for the gig please let us know what you thought of them.  We have a date with ‘JUST FLOYD’ later in the year, it will be good to compare notes. 

This weekend is looking exciting as we have ‘Worlds Apart’ here on Friday night, these guys have been on the Norwich Music Scene for as long as I can remember and still manage to pack the place, mind you with a set like theirs it’s not surprising really. Saturday night is going to be just as busy, I’m playing with ‘Pure Passion’ and we have the awesome ‘She Sez’ playing with us too so it’s going to be awesome. I so love playing to a home crowd, it’s like slipping on a pair of comfy PJ’s. Can’t wait!

Well I think that’s enough random rambling for tonight…I can hear my bed calling… Don’t forget to leave us your comments guys and also check out our shiny new website if you haven’t already!!!

Keep Rockin’
