Victoria Vaults- We just got the Party Started

2014 is underway and we are all trying to calm down after an absolute "Bonza" of an afternoon at the Victorian Vaults. Its a while since we have seen people dancing on seats on a Sunday afternnoon!

York's proving a great city for the Despoilers and we are back in York on Sunday 2nd February at the Roman Bath. Band on from 8:00 pm. Also we have re-booked today for the Victoria vaults in March.

Three weeks of practice ahead now, so we can bring in some storming new covers at the Roman Bath. We got some good stuff in mind and it really rocks. Can't wait.

Despoilers Christmas Message (Drivel)

Another enjoyable and entertaining night at yet another new venue. Thank you to the Red Lion, Shadwell.

 The band is signing off 2013 now, for a period of rest and practice. Is that a paradox?

It’s been a great year, in which the band has gone through a major transformation and finishes the year on a solid foundation to really rock in 2014.

Established now in both the Leeds and York music scenes and with a shed load of great gigs booked, 2014 should be a really fun year.

Last but not least we want to thank everybody that have supported us in 2013, particularly mentions to Colin and Scooby whose friendly faces have popped up far from home turf on many, many occasions throughout the year.

A very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to your all.

Great Night at The Jug (as always)

The good people of Stanningley and surrounding areas turned out in force last night to make it another special night at the Jug and Barrel. In fact the last three gigs have been like a tidal wave sweeping the band along and we have quite got our heads around it yet, other than to say thank you we are just loving it.

Back in 2014.

Thanks again.

Mayhem in York!

We have had some memorable nights with the band and last nights gig at The Roman Bath, York is right up there. The scene was set when Stevie G, blindly following the satnav, sets off driving down the Shambles, even if the car didnt fit and withTim in hot pursuit. Japanese tourists were scattering like confetti.

When we finally get there we end up playing to the most fantastic/mental crowd imaginable. The Bar was packed like a can of sardines and that's just how we like it! With the stage full of crazy girls through half the second set, the band really relished the gig. Back in 2014? We sure hope so.

A big, big thank you to all at the Roman Bath.

LOL

The Roman Bath York Saturday 26th October

Well it's short notice but "Hey Man" live for the day. York city Saturday night, anyone fancy it?

The band are so looking forward to playing York again, its been about 7 months.
