We’ve just had our appearance at this year’s Knockengorroch World Ceilidh confirmed for the Saturday (May 23rd) so clearly we’re pretty excited about that. You can get more details and buy tickets from www.knockengorroch.org.uk When we know our stage time we’ll pass it on here.
Just a quick update: as predicited, the official website is now functioning: http://www.kelburngardenparty.com It’s the only place you can get yourself one of the limited number of early bird tickets. It has a great line up, and the icing on the castle-shaped cake is that we will be playing at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon, just ahead of James […]
Ah, the summer, even the thought makes you forget the months of darkness and cold and wind and misery and… okay, maybe not forget, but certainly set to one side for a moment. We’re excited to announce that we’re playing the Kelburn Garden Party this June (19th-21st). This is a new festival but we’ve played over there […]
Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who brought in the New Year with us at the Departure Lounge – it was a great night. I particularly enjoyed the hundreds of people bawling out the words and jumping around manically to the ska choruses at the end of Auld Lang Syne. It was a great way […]
‘The Drawing Room Sessions’ – a fitting name considering the surroundings. Thanks to everyone at the Graffiti Project (Kelburn Castle) for such a wonderful evening of music and food. I tried my best not to drop a stick during the proceedings so as not to give Moose the excuse to look at me with ‘where’s […]
I’ll keep this short and sweet because if I write much more I’m likely to break into full rant, given that some kind people nicked about 55 massive slate floor tiles from outside my door last night. Thanks guys. Anyway, if you are interested, there is a (wobbly) video clip from our support slot for Nizlopi up on youtube: […]
Sorry to say that our gig at 80 Queen Street this weekend (Saturday 25th) has now been cancelled due to the apparent closure of the venue. We apologise if you had made plans to come and see us.
The positive hits just keep on coming. How many hits? ‘More hits than Barry Bonds playing slow pitch in the disabled seniors league,’ as Abdominal would put it. Gecko 3 are delighted to announce that we will be playing the midnight set at the Departure Lounge Hogmanay party. The event also features live sets from […]
So, it seems that our big November support slot has now been confirmed! We’re supporting The Five Corners Quintet (www.thefivecornersquintet.com) on Sunday November 16th, 8pm, in the Voodoo Rooms. Since this is also the Moose’s birthday, and we may get a chance to play some of the jazzier numbers (which means my new guitar ‘Mr Wibble’ can […]
Well – a few months since our last post and I’m thinking we’ve not embraced this Web 2.0 thing with enough aplomb… Hugh’s seasonal fruits aside, we have actually been quite busy. You may have noticed our new blog! Other than a much needed revamp, this one makes it really easy for Marty to upload […]
