Played two gigs myself this weekend either side of the Whitney Rose gig in Camden as part of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Jazz & Blues Festival. Went out again today for the last day to see my friends in the Jake Leg Jug band (I've depped on washboard and vocals for them a couple of times)

Two weeks ago: Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind in Cinetol, Amsterdam.
About 50 people in a very small and warm (more like hot) venue.
I think there were more Brits than Dutch in :)

p.s. I wanted to add a photo but couldn't work out how...well, maybe next time :Hoorah

Well, I didn't make it to Ron Sexsmith - too much work on - but I did make it down the front to Kiss....

Pure pantomime, but terrific fun. They're a photographer's dream too :)

I was down in London again working for the exam board - perfect timing to attend the My Darling Clementine album launch at The Islington - country soul with a horn section :)

Then, the night after I caught a train to Nottingham to see E-Street band member Garry Tallent's all-star rockabilly band (including Eddie Angel of Los Straitjackets unmasked, Fats Kaplan and Kristi Rose). Fabulous night of old-school rockabilly and twang.

Then it was up at 4am to catch the 4.56am train to St Pancras, check out of my London hotel and catch the tube to Hammersmith where I spent the rest of the day training GCSE examiners - with an Ofqual inspector on my table all afternoon...

Last Saturday went to Blenheim Palace for the day and then in the evening watched Gregory Porter, Jamie Cullum and Corinne Bailey Rae. Each year they hold Nocturne for a few days and have some good acts on. RH would be brilliant here!! Great place to visit with all its history, lovely picnic in the afternoon and all round good day with the weather really and truly in our favour. :D

We played a cancer charity benefit honouring two local musicians - my good friend, ex-colleague and ex-band member Craig Beverley and folk stalwart Jolly Jock. We headlined, so I got to see all the other bands - there's a heck of a lot of talent in the North Staffs/South Cheshire area at the moment.
The full line -up - check them out on Youtube:
Elvis Fontenot (that's us/me...)
Nixon Tate & the Honey Club
The King's Pistol
Megan Dixon-Hood
Tin Chapel
Hollie Vee & the Hubkaps
John Dhali
Narn
Wilcox:Hulse
Dawson:Dean
The Red Kites

Some photos from the day:

And here's a couple of videos featuring yours truly on accordion and rubboard...
