We gots a GIG! Sunday 30th July…Taunton Live…
So here it is….the gig book for Sunday’s gig as part of the Taunton Live festival.
I understand we are playing in the marquee on Castle Green, behind the Castle Hotel and next to the Bus Station.
The gig book has been expertly put together by Goldmic Productions and features many of your favourite songs.
Lots and lots and lots going on for Taunton Live starting today.
Meet at 1215pm at the Marquee for a sound check. Yes, a sound check. The audience has insisted on listening to our inane ramblings and we try to work out how to start and finish each song. They say its the best part of our gigs. Can’t argue with that.
We start at 1pm and need to be off the stage around 50 mins or so later…the next act starts at 2pm.
Come on down to the gleaming metropolis of Taunton, Somerset’s County Town for a day of delights.
We gots a gig!

This is the gig book for Friday.
The Amazing Tone has updated Book 5, so now the Book 5 link on the songbooks page goes to that new version. Download it again so you have the right version.

QUE PASA PEOPLE QUE PASA, HIT ME!
Now then. There’s this excellent songbook on the internet. Like our songbooks. Only… like… with FIFTEEN HUNDRED SONGS IN IT! It is compiled by Jim Carey from the songbooks of many, many clubs and websites. It has lots of our songs, and loads of songs we don’t do. I strongly recommend you download it. It even has an index where you can tap the song to go to that page, and links on every page back to the index.
How cool is that?
I’m hosting the September 2016 book here. But you can always get the most up to date version from Jim’s own link here.
You do one thing, then they’re all on your back… “Do this thing too! This thing! THINGS!”
So Book Zero now includes Tubthumping and Budapest, both adapted to be playable.
Book 5 was broken on the Songbooks page but not any more!
It’s also marginally updated but I can’t for the life of me remember how or where. First person to spot the difference wins a lifetime membership to TUSC*.
*Not the Con Club. That costs.
