Billy’s Blog – Friday, 30th Nov ’12
Hi all! We are back from Dubai and I have to say, the gigs were fantastic! Thank you to all who turned up on both nights and made the gigs so memorable!
A BIG thanks to Jim and Dennis McGettigan, the owners of Bonnington Towers for the VIP treatment they gave us and also to Declan Pierce and all the staff at the towers. It really is an amazing hotel!
After the gigs we had two brilliant and funny after show parties. Joe, Rod and myself got the guitars out and we were joined by the hotel pianist. We sang some great songs. A highlight being Joe singing some Bowie songs and Rod singing crowded house songs. Everyone got into the vibe and we partied until the early hours. There is talk of us going back for three gigs next year.
On Saturday, Rod and Smokie got VIP clubhouse passes for the Dubai golf classic. They followed Rory McIlroy around the course and had a great day out!
I am delighted to tell you that we are playing a charity gig for the Ross Noble Cancer Charity in Gerald Kean’s house in Wicklow on Thursday, 13th December. We are so looking forward to doing this.
Last night we were in IMRO receiving two awards. I will tell you all about it in the next blog.
We are in Ballina tomorrow so hope to see you there!
Keep it real, Billy 😉
