A second, equally tough year for me, the music scene, and hospitality, but we survived, and welcome 2022, hopeful as ever - despite many life knocks! And here's one of my highlights from 2021, after encountering a London Film Student in Bletchley, Milton Keynes. Added to my New Channel Playlist, I've called "Plucky's Documentaries & Interviews", & av. on Web Page HD YT 9.
Quarterly Blog Update on LemonRock as ever, proffers more detail, but I delightfully secured & concluded my year with a NYE Gig @ 'Three Fyshes Restaurant & Bar,' Turvey, Beds. Despite Omicron & Gov Measures nearly forcing it to be pulled - due to many cancellations! However, we all made compromises to 'get it away', and I did my best to Entertain those who braved 'the backdrop'; playing non-stop 4 & 1/2 hrs! A new Plucky record! 💖 tphx

This pic is from Easter's Sat gig @ IntuUK shopping centre in Milton Keynes where I performed with Full PA. You can tell by my game-face, Plucky means business! 'Twas a fabulous day, superb having so many kind & generous locals stop a while enjoying a slice of my 4+ hr. non-stop live performance of Originals & Covers. Relaxing in the sunshine within the circle around me; in deckchairs Intu had laid-on, sat on the walling, or on the AstroTurf eating pizza! Just chillin', while the non-stop river of life streamed on by, going about it's business through the malls. Just PERFECT! tphx
At the end of Feb. 2019, I performed my 150th song at The Sunset Lounge; potentially the World's longest running continuous Open Mic night, held weekly in Newport Pagnell nr. Milton Keynes. I first performed @ the SSL 31 May 2012, 3 months after picking up guitar to learn it, sing my first covers, and even try writing 01Mar12. NOW, I'm happy to perform any SET selection from my growing repertoire of Originals & Covers. 150 in a truly varied & dynamic rep.; added to my 'Gig View' web page.
What would your favourite 3 song set be, from this list? Perhaps for a fiver, I could play them LIVE for you at my next OM! :D In the coming months, I hope to add more covers to my YouTube Channel, as well as more of Plucky's Worthy Originals. Available for paid Gigs & Festivals. Stay tuned folks; subscribe & have a fabulous SPRING!
Thank you all, for your support & pushing me to continually improve. Haggis Hugs - Cheers! tphx
After two fabulous summer pub gigs, and my first wedding (2 hrs in idyllic surroundings), I'm ready for a few festivals, aren't you! Then join me for some of Plucky's Worthy Originals & Fab Covers :)
First up, Swan Fest (tomorrow) Sat 28th Jul. An hour of Plucky 4/5pm in the small village of Stewkley, raising funds for PTSD RESOLUTION. I'll be keeping an eye out for 'Britain's Favourite Landlord', though Al doesn't run The Swan Pub - YET! :D
Aug. 18th Legion of Rhythm, RB Legion, Newport Pagnell, MK (my 6th consecutive year) & my latest performance there to date: 22:15 - 22:45. Live Music Midday - Midnight! Raising money for Willen Hospice. It's always a great event with loads of talented musos; singers, songwriters & bands!
Finally, Fenny Poppers 2018 (Sun 19th 11-6 pm). I'm delighted to be asked back again; it's dynamic annual event nr Bletchley, MK. Fenny Stratford High Street is closed for Live Music Festival & Entertainment. Plucky's Main stage 'Originals': 11:20 - 11:40, followed by Plucky's Popular Covers 13:00 - 13:30 on the Acoustic stage, t'other end. It's more up-front-and-personal, and I love it.
