Another great gig, and I agree that the short solo set which opened the show was a real treat. When I first saw Aynsley, the band was a threesome. I have to say that the addition of keyboards was inspired and no better places than in Dan’s capable hands. From my seat at the front, I had an uninterupted view of the man himself in all his glory. I have to say I prefer seated events (being a shorthouse), though I suspect that some of the audience had to twist their necks a bit. Looking forward to the next round, when they’ve recovered their strength!

Sounds like another great one, and you certainly got a treat with the early solo set. Surprised to hear it was a seated gig though. How many were there?

Agree with all your comments as usual! This was the first time for my nan and aunt and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, 2 more fans! My nan especially, she’s been calling people and booming Aynsleys tunes down the phone, she just can’t get enough!

On a personal note, i enjoyed the fact that the gig was seated (although i like standing events also) and the sound quality this time round sounded much more defined especially vocally, which made it all the more better.

Can’t wait to see the band again, and invite more people to come along next time round!

Lovely to see you BB also, though it was a shame that i couldn’t talk to your daughter as much i would have hoped. Next time!! =)

Thanks again

Every time ive seen Aynsley and the band they have always delivered no matter how lively or subdued the crowd,not for me picking out the errors/mishaps at a gig,thats what the fun of a “live” performance is all about,Dingwalls MK1 has yet to be bettered for performance and crowd reaction for me personally.It was good to have a pre gig waffle with Dan,Simon and the young lady from Peckham(or should that read Nunhead),geography being a subject we flirted with for a minute or two LOL.Devizes in Cornwall OOPS sorry Simon. Good ol BB had the dance floor to himself and did himself proud with his very own excellent version of daddy dancing while making notes(clever ol boy BB well done).
Eldo i saved my energy for THE MIGHTY SKIN next monday,definatly no seats there ol boy,that is gonna be gig of the year for me NO PROBLEM.BB i’ll be back on the raw red meat from sunday.

Hi Abby

Good comments and great to see you and your family too.

Got me thinking as I believe you might be from North London/Essex way (though I’m probably wrong)- It would be really good to let Alan (Aynsley’s Manager) know of some venues in that neck of the woods. To help widen that fan base.

I know there is a place in Bocking, but it only holds about 100 people.


Any thoughts?

BB

Jeez!! The dust in here - at least the facemasks come in for something…..

No, I haven’t heard news of a re-visit; nor would I rule one out….  Just a heads-up; while poking round for gig news, discovered that Dingwalls has had a name change, and may take a bit of getting used to - PowerHaus..

Do you remember when Newcastle had a Dingwalls (previous owners were the Hofbrauhaus Beirkeller 81 ish. )
I remember Wilko Jonstone there and a couple of Chris Rea gigs.
Usually followed by sleeping in on the train then having to get the train back from York at 3.25 in the morning. See remember the train time I did it that often!

If that’s the Bierkeller/Dingwalls that was on Waterloo St. it changed again towards the back-end of the 80’s - oddly enough to Powerhouse, though one of the biggest Gay clubs in the city.(The competition, Rockshots was above,,, don’t,,,,,) Now the entire block has become flats. Note, one of the Toon’s best “grass-roots” pubs, The Broken Doll was round the corner on Blenheim St.
