Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

I was at the Blue Monday 23th April 2012 in Muddy's Club in Weinheim /Bergstraße (a hot place  for hot  music!). I knew Aynsley from his Pilgrimage Tour 2006 with Ian Parker and Erja Lyttinen to Memphis and Tennessee (RUF Records). The concert was phantastic with Steve Amadeo on the bass, great.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

It's been announced that after 4 very happy years, Midus is stepping down as bass player in Aynsley's band. She has been away over the winter, re-couperating from surgery and has decided the time is right to move on to other projects.

Taking over on a permanent basis is long-time Ian Parker sideman Steve Amadeo. Steve has been covering for Midus over the last few months and has been invited to take over permanently. Apparently, Steve was previously with Aynsley for a time, about 10 years ago.

So, big hello to Steve and very best wishes follow Midus for the future.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Better (a little) late than never; from Gary Grainger of Bishop FM...

"Aynsley Lister live on the Blues Show on BishopFM Sept. 2nd

I’m really looking forward to this session on my show. Ainsley will be picking all of the music for the show and will also play an acoustic set. We’ll be having a chat too.
How to hear the show:

The show goes out live from 6-8pm on Sunday Sept. 2nd:

In the local area (10-15 miles around Bishop Auckland) the show can be heard on 105.9BishopFM
Online we can be heard by going to http://www.bishopfm.com and click on Listen Live (top right hand side of the screen) - we have a server limit of, I think, 100 which means that only that number of people can listen online at any one time. Once we get near to that limit, you’ll experience buffering etc.

Another way to listen live - on your smartphone, download an app called Tune In and search for BishopFM - a lot of people listen around the world using this app.

After the event there are several other ways to hear the show - It will be repeated on BishopFM.com on Wednesday 5th Sept at 11.00pm

On Monday Sept 3rd the show will go out on Kansas City Online Radio at midnight UK time - and twice more during the week.

During the week following the live broadcast, i’ll put the show online at my blog: http://thumbrella.blogspot.com with a link to stream or downoad the show.

I hope this helps - if anybody has any questions please get in touch - and during the show, please send any messages to studio@bishopfm.com"

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Anyone heading along to Aynsley's Middlesbrough Empire gig on 30th September - you may or may not know of a little confusion about the gig at the moment. Last week, the promoters put word out that the gig was cancelled, I think due to clash on the same night with a Dr Feelgood gig nearby.

While the Empire's site says cancelled, they aren't about to issue refunds just yet as they are working with Aynsley's management to re-schedule. Obviously, there will be refunds if the rescheduling doesn't come off, or the date isn't convenient to existing ticket holders; so hang tight. As I hear it, I'll pass it on.

The date on October 5th at Shildon Civic, while with same promoter, is NOT effected.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Just to update - this IS cancelled and as of the week-end, The Empire are refunding. Unfortunately, no suitable alternate date could be arranged at this time.

The rest of Aynsley's tour is unchanged.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Absolutely cock-a-hoop about this gig – Aynsley & band virtually in my backyard! The guys took a chance with a new promoter and a new (to them) venue and pulled off a spankin’ night (as if the outcome was ever in doubt).

As it turned out, we got two opening bands, the first being The Sugar B’s. Rousing and romping covers band, think Dr Feelgood with a little Bad Manners. Great stuff and set a really good vibe for the evening.

Next up was the Tom Atkinson Band; Formerly known as Presence and the jaw-breaking Victims Of The Fury; a local group I like to keep my eye on as I think Tom has a lot of potential over than relying on solely covers. This evening I’m glad to say the band premiered a batch of original songs, so fresh they were hardly even titled before closing with a couple of Cream standards. Compared to the likes of Virgil, Mitch & The Mentulls, Tom maybe a comparative “late-bloomer”, but he’s earned his dues round the clubs and it’s great to see him spread himself. Hope there’s an E.P. on the way soon.

And then the turn of the main man; treading where only Wilko has trod before. Joined by the now established nucleus of the band, Steve Amadeo on bass and Andre Bassing on the keyboards and “for one night only” the Joe Bonamassa of the drum-kit, Wayne Proctor. Stop press news is that THIS is the band Aynsley has taken into the studio with him: something which, if he's done before, record with the road band, it's been a long time ago. That said, its a tight and impressive unit, and the guys delivered another blazing show, based round what's become a pretty established set, pre new album release:-

The Big Sleep
Running Out On Me
Inside Out
Crazy
Early Morning Dew
What’s It All About
Possession
Sugar
Home
Feeling Good
Hurricane
In The Morning
Encore Purple Rain

You’ll have to forgive me if the running order was a little different, very rare I’m not designated driver, so the cider was flowing freely. However, was aware enough that the sound was one of the best I’ve heard for an Aynsley set, while the atmosphere didn’t quite reach Cluny or Bootleggers level the guys won some new fans, among the familiar faces that travelled down from Newcastle & Hexham. The musical chemistry between Aynsley & Andre keeps getting more and more impressive - Andre’s now in my top 3 keyboard players and Steve’s bass-work is never less than astounding.

Well done Aynsley & team for another cracking gig, and to Shades of Rock team for getting Shildon Civic on the events map.

Mike

Edit - escaped my mind for the moment - compere for the evening was the incomparable moustache of Gary Grainger - British Blues Award Independant Broadcaster of the Year - as he keeps reminding me tongue

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Back in June when I previously went down to Reeth, I enjoyed the drive down especially from Richmond to Reeth; until I passed the perfect car for the journey heading the opposite direction; an Austin Healey 3000 MkII: last Saturday the perfect vehicle would have been a DUKW. However, once at the Buck Hotel; the bar was cosy, the welcome was warm, the food was hot and the music volcanic, with Aynsley & band also braving the weather.

Not the biggest of venues, but a near full house settled for 2 searing sets from the band in their debut in this quiet corner of N.Yorks. Aynsley romping through tried and tested oldies and newbies; some great interplay with Andre on keyboards, driven along by Steve on bass and all nailed together with new boy Boneto nicely settled behind the drums. I’ll not repeat the set list but it has been juggled a bit over the past few months. However, it went down well with the polite Yorkshire audience though a few souls braved a filthy night coming over from Chester way.

Just as a side note: anyone thinking of heading to Aynsley's advertised show at The Wardrobe, Leeds  on the 29th NOV, - Don't; it's cancelled.. Not the band's fault, or the venue, but the promoters, Shades Of Rock. It seems as new players in the game, they've either been over-ambitious, naive or big on promises and short on delivery. As with the Middlesbrough gig, the band and venue have tried to salvage something but just too little notice for this tour; they will try for next time round.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Braved a drive in torrential rain to see Aynsley on Thursday at the Robin 2 and it was well worth the effort as always. Superb set, including some of the songs destined for the new album due for release early next year.

Here's one of those songs "Sugar", where Aynsley invited Virgil McMahon up for an impromptu jam - great fun.
