The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

CLXVIII - Bristol Louisiana - 21/06/10

Monday 21st June 2010
Bristol Louisiana

Owen Nicholson
The Dawn Chorus

We did a favour for our mate Owen to raise a few pennies for Raleigh International. It was far too hot for a two hour drive to Bristol, but a nice relaxing sound check due to us being the only full band was well received.

We played quite well, the Louie is a nice venue. Then drove 2 hours home, 4 hours sleep and then up again for work. Hell yeah.


CLXVII - Swindon 12 Bar - 06/06/10

Sunday June 6th 2010
Swindon 12 Bar

Buswell (with strings)
Sweet Plum Trio
The Dawn Chorus
Frank and Jules

The previous gig in Swindon we met Shaun, a very nice sound guy, he asked us to support his band at the 12 bar, so we did.

His band had 11 members for this gig! Lots of strings. Lots of everything really. They were great.

I lost my tuner pedal :(

It was my birthday and I got the complete 'The Thick of It' on DVD :)

I ordered a cheeseburger at McD's and got a double :) x 1000

Good times

CLXVI - Swindon The Vic - 07/05/10

Friday 7th May 2010
Swindon The Vic

The John Trowbridge Band
The Dawn Chorus

I'm currently madly googling to try to find the names of the 2 bands we played with. I really can't remember. Back in the day I had a photographic memory for this type of thing. We hadn't been to Swindon for ages and we probably had our best show there. It was my Mum's birthday and we gave her the cake treatment, much like we did for Pauly B's Mum at the previous gig.

We played without Wit and it went well. That is all I can remember. Loser.
