Last night at Route 44, Birmingham
Posted on: November 22nd, 2015 by Johnny S
Wow – brilliant night last night at Birmingham’s Route 44! It’s been nearly a year and half since we last played (far too long!) but we were blown away by the crowd response and turnout. So nice to catch up with some old faces that we haven’t seen for quite a while. Was also great to finally play Deep Purple’s ‘Burn’ for the very first time – we hope you enjoyed. As always, a massive thanks for the great sound and organisation at Route 44 by Kite, John and Darren. Big thanks also to support band Bad Flowers for a blistering set.
We’re back for another local gig on Saturday 12th December at Solihull’s The Dingle. Hope to see you there!
NEXT GIG: Route 44, Sat 21st November 2015

Struggling to remember how long it’s been since we last played the awesome Route 44 but we do know it’s been way, way, way too long! So we hope you can join us at our ‘spiritual home’ at Route 44 in Acocks Green, Birmingham. Expect a full-on night of all things Hughes, Trapeze, Purple, Zeppelin, Bonamassa, Mule, Communion, Hughes-Thrall and a smattering of California Breed. Support comes in the way of the awesome Bad Flowers. See you there!
Rockers Reunited, Torquay
Posted on: October 11th, 2015 by Johnny S
Great to have Owen match-fit again after having to cancel our recent gig at The Dingle in Solihull. And what a welcome we got for our first time playing at the brilliant ‘Rockers Reunited’ weekend at The Victoria Hotel in Torquay. We met some lovely people including a few folk that made the journey from Birmingham. A massive thanks goes out to Lynn Fearn for all the organising and making us feel so welcome. Hopefully we’ll be back for another Rockers Reunited event soon.
CANCELLED GIG – Solihull, Sat 19th Sep
Posted on: September 19th, 2015 by Johnny S
Sadly we’ve had to cancel tonight’s gig at The Harvester (Solihull). Owen has been taken ill and admitted into hospital this morning for immediate attention. We wish the big guy well and a speedy recovery. Our sincere apologies to all those that have made plans to come tonight and our apologies also to Phil and Dawn at the Harvester. We’ll make it up to you all when we next play. Sending out get-well vibes to Owen. BCC.
Last night’s gig at The Railway
Posted on: August 16th, 2015 by Johnny S
Massive, massive, massive thank you to all that came to the always awesome The Railway in Bolton last night. It was great to be back on stage and also to catch up with so many friends and awesome people. As always huge thanks to Jon and Hilary for always making us feel so welcome and for the brilliant sound on stage. Hopefully we won’t leave it so long to return next time.

Beaverwood & Boom Boom Club gigs
Posted on: June 14th, 2015 by Johnny S
So I think we’re just about fully rested and recovered here from what’s been a brilliant and unforgettable few days in London. Thursday night saw us play the brilliant Beaverwood Club in Chislehurst. We were truly bowled over and humbled by the response from the crowd – a real enthusiastic bunch with some hardcore Trapeze fans in attendance! We met some great people on the night and special mentions go out to Eric Harvey for his help and Peter Rubin for his support and kind words on his ‘PR RockShow’ on Ridge Radio. A massive thank you also goes out to Owen’s brother James for his kindness and hospitality in allowing four sweaty, loud-snoring Brummies to stay the night at his house.
Friday night saw us play the awesome Boom Boom Club in Sutton. Again, we were bowled over by the loud, enthusiastic response – an awesome crowd of music lovers – it was our absolute pleasure to play. Yet again there were more hardcore Trapeze and Bonamassa fans in attendance so we hope you enjoyed the set and it was great to give Trapeze’s ‘Jury’ an airing. We really hope to be back at both venues asap as we made some great friends on both nights. We would especially like to thank Pete Feenstra for his support and help with both gigs, Simon Taylor at EQAudio for the amazing sound at both venues and John Bull at Rockrpix for the absolutely amazing photographs!
There’s some great footage from both night’s floating around Youtube here
It’s Noddy and Big Owen!

A proud day yesterday as our very own Owen Davidson met the one and only Glam-rock legend that is Sir Nodworth of Holdershire!
Dave Timmins – the man behind the camera…
Posted on: October 18th, 2014 by Johnny S
Just a shameless plug for our good friend and photographer extraordinaire Mr Dave Timmins. If it wasn’t for Dave we wouldn’t have all these lovely photographs to use on our website and promotional materials. So a big man-sized thank you Dave from us all in BCC. You can see much more of Dave’s talents here
