OneRepublic and Mikky Ekko at the O2 Academy, Leeds

Well for once it wasn’t me dragging Cameron to a gig, but Cameron taking me to see one of his favourite bands. We got there really early to try and make sure we got a seat (yes, we’re getting old),… Continue Reading →

Eric Church and The Cadillac Three at The Ritz, Manchester

For Christmas, Cameron bought me tickets to see Eric Church at the Ritz in Manchester. Since it had been a while since we went away anywhere, we decided to get a hotel in the centre of Manchester and have the… Continue Reading →

First look at Leeds First Direct Arena

While we were on holiday in Skipton, Cameron spotted a tweet from Leeds First Direct Arena advertising their open day – 2,500 tickets released for free to help them test some of their functions before the arena has its official… Continue Reading →

Review: Brad Paisley – Diary of a Player

I’ve been wanting to read this book since it first came out a couple of years ago, but I’d never been able to justify the price (with it being an American book and not widely available in the UK). But… Continue Reading →

Wow! Il Divo just blew my mind!

Just got home from Sheffield where I went to see Il Divo with my Dad. It was officially my Dad’s Christmas present, but I only really said that to justify spending £65 a ticket and I really really wanted to go! We… Continue Reading →

A Weekend in London – and Ron Pope!!

This weekend, Frank and I went to London, primarily to see Ron Pope on Saturday night, but also to have a walk round and see all the touristy places as he’d never really been to London before. I’d booked a… Continue Reading →

Top 15 Albums of 2011

I know we’re now over a week into 2012, but I was thinking today about the best music that I heard in 2011, and I thought I’d turn it into a blog post. I’ve been told (quite often) that I… Continue Reading →

Family Records Rock My Socks

This last week has been kinda tough, so when I got home from work this evening, I was pretty tired and not in the best mood. Waiting for me on the table was this package: When I saw ‘Family Records’… Continue Reading →

Remember Remember the 5th of November…

As the day that Pearl and the Beard completely rocked my socks off! Frank and I went to The Castle Hotel in Manchester to see Pearl and the Beard last night. When the tickets were announced at the start of… Continue Reading →

Wakey!Wakey!, Casey Shea, To Kill a King Part 2

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to the Family Records for this really kind blog post – it put a big smile on my face when I read it last night! http://twitter.com/#!/familyrecords/status/123845324958744576 Yesterday was the second part of… Continue Reading →

Wakey!Wakey!, Casey Shea, To Kill a King Part 1

A.K.A ‘I don’t know any executives…’ Tonight me and Frank returned back to the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham to see Wakey!Wakey again. We saw them play there in June and it was awesome, and tonight just cranked it up to… Continue Reading →

26 Tuesdays of Awesome Music!

One of my favourite artists, Ron Pope, is currently doing an awesome ’26 Tuesdays of Music’ project. I signed up for it in June, and the emails have been coming through every Tuesday since 5th July. The first week was… Continue Reading →

Album of the Week – Love Shine Through by Tim Hughes

I bought this album at the start of the week – I didn’t realise it was released a couple of months ago. I love the last two Tim Hughes albums, and I can say that I’m definitely going to think… Continue Reading →

Britain’s Got Talent

Last night, I went to the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield to see the Britain’s Got Talent live tour with Vicky. At first I was a bit skeptical about how good it would be because I didn’t remember that many good… Continue Reading →

The Grubbs Effect

This week my website is ‘suffering’ from what I have now deemed ‘The Grubbs Effect’. Usually, my website gets between 50-150 views a week. After I went to the Wakey!Wakey! show last week, Mike Grubbs re-tweeted my website link: http://twitter.com/#!/WakeyWakey/status/81279347998199809… Continue Reading →

Family Records

A few weeks ago, I ordered some Wakey!Wakey! stuff from the Family Records store. Last week, most of the stuff arrived, and there was a note on the invoice to say the poster I ordered was out of stock. I… Continue Reading →

F*** Yeah (Sorry Mike’s Mum!)

Okay, so if you are reading this, you’ll know that I don’t really swear that often, but the title of this post will make sense to anyone at the Wakey!Wakey! show tonight. Wakey!Wakey came across to the UK for two… Continue Reading →

10 days…

…until Wakey Wakey!

Just what I needed…

There have been a couple of times in the last week or so when I have heard/read something that was exactly what I needed. I have a couple of Bible reading plans, one is a 100 day reading plan in… Continue Reading →

Sometimes, the answer is no

On the day that Brad Paisley’s new album has been released, I wanted to share my favourite Brad Paisley song – No. I love the words to this song. It is very easy to think that God isn’t listening if… Continue Reading →

I know you want to stay in bed…

…but it’s light outside. That’s right folks, Wakey!Wakey! are coming to the UK for two dates, and guess who’s going to see them in Nottingham? Very, very excited! Frank is coming with me, and it is his first gig, so… Continue Reading →
