Billy’s Blog – Thurs, 13th June ’13
Well I suppose you heard Christy got up on stage last week at the City West Hotel and sang three songs at the Bernard Dunne charity event ball. This is the best news ever and we are all delighted with the progress he is making. Happy days! Because of the demand from people who want to see the gig, we will be streaming it around the world in venues that we have played in from Dubai to Australia dn the US and all around Europe. The full list of venues showing the gig will be posted on our website and our Facebook. Why don’t you ask your local pub/bar to stream it!
We start rehearsals next week for the gig and I can’t wait as all the acts will be coming out to us and running through the songs they have picked. Today, three more acts were added; The Riptide Movement, Gavin James & Jedward. We really would have liked to add more nights but the artists performing on the night would not be available. So this is a once off never to be repeated night.
Christy was over in the UK last week for some treatment and is doing really well again. Thank you all for your support and good vibes that you are sending him.
A week after the gig, Christy’s daughter Kiera is getting married. We are all going and I’m sure it will be a great night. She is doing really well and after the wedding, she is in the studio with Ryan Sheridan. Can’t wait to hear what they do!
I would like to send BIG THANKS to all involved in the gig for Christy; Brian Whitehead, Paddy McPolland, Guggi, Svenn, Paul Andrews, Daz, Deco, Mark Downing & Sabrina in Mission PR. Well done to all of you for making this happen. Also, a BIG BIG THANKS to all the artists who are appearing on the night. We have asked on our facebook for you to send in your favourite Aslan story. The best ones will be read out on the night in the Olympia Theatre.
Please be kind to all the acts on the night and show them what the atmosphere is like at an Aslan gig! Please sing your hearts out and enjoy ever second of it. We definitely will!!
Cheers, Billy 😉
