Hey hey hey! …I know it’s not quite hot enough to start raving about summer, but festival season is on the horizon! I know we’ve been a little bit quiet for the past few weeks, but that is all about to change! We have some great gigs coming up in Holland, Germany and Switzerland over the next couple of months. We kick off this week at Breda Jazz Festival, where we’re playing the main stage on Thursday night (13th May) which I’m really looking forward to. It seems like ages since me and the guys got connected and we’ve never played Breda before either. This is just a short trip, as I’m flying back to the UK the next day. BUT at the end of this month we’ll be performing at the legendary Jazzrally in Düsseldorf, amongst a fantastic line up of bands, dj’s and artists! I have no doubt it will be a wicked weekend, and it’ll be nice to hang out with our label crew too, Unique Records. Come down if you’re around!
Following that, The Vipertones and I will be performing at Jazz by Duurstede, Reuring Festival,Supernatural Festival and North Sea Around Town, as well as returning to perform in the hometown of this project, Dordrecht in mid July. I’d better buy some new dresses!!
But if you’re into planning well ahead, we have been given a great opportunity to play the Blue Balls Festival 2010 in Switzerland on 28th July, alongside legendary and popular peeps like Gil Scott-Heron, Sinead O’Connor, Jose James, Gabriella Climi, James Morrison and one of my local Brightonian heroes, Fink. I can’t wait to hit the site!
Lastly, as we continue writing for the 2nd Laura Vane & The Vipertones album, we don’t want to keep you waiting too long for new music, so we are also putting together a cd of remixes for release a little later in the year! Watch this space!
Staying out of trouble, but not for long… Laura x
