A Steaming Grand Day Out

So we come around to Steampunk Solstice time again. This year reverting to it's original one day format and with the barometers still set fair in The Derbyshire Dales, a repeat of that first yea'rs torrential rain will definitely be avoided.

      The venue is the usual one, of The Grand Pavilion in Matlock Bath and the date is this coming Saturday, June 28th.

      A couple of pluses for this year are, that the event runs from 10am through until 6pm, to enable people get home more easily and that there is no admission charge.


 The market will run all day and stage performances will run from midday  featuring BB, Acoustic BlackDog, Lord Montague Jaques Fromage III's Steampunk Funk Bizarre, Kai Swarvett and others.

      Moving into July, BB head to another Steampunk event, The Black Country Steam-O-Rama at The Griffin in Dudley on Sunday the 20th.

     The event also features music from old friends …

It's Only Gone And Arrived!

If you went down to the woods at Bearded Theory  i am sure you were pleasantly surprised.

                                     For BB's  stage show has morphed again.

     A resplendent stage company of seven. Axel, Dale, Molly and Sven sharing the low bass, the new addition of Sue and Nansy from Red Ruff, providing backing vocals and the indomitable Lord Montague assuming the role of ringmaster to this positive Steampunk Rock Circus. All adding their on stage antics to a musical programme , full of power, subtlety and mischief.

          For more about Red Ruff, check out their website , they also appear fairly regularly at the Monday night sessions which Dale runs at The Bulls Head, Belper Lane End.

       Credit also to the festival organisers for creating a the superb "Locked In The Woods" stage setting.

  Great vibes and receptions at both Steampunk events last weekend in Frome and Morecambe too and the summer season off and running.…
