A great start to the holiday season

A huge thank you to the staff and customers at the Wig & Quill in Salisbury last night.

So many people dancing and singing along and shouting for more! We may have played a few too many encores at the end there so apologies to any local residents but the audience demanded it!

You certainly gave Neil a very warm welcome to the band and gave us a great start to our season of holiday gigs.

See you all again soon!

A New Face (for a little while)

Terry is away for a little while so once again we find ourselves with a new (interim) guitarist.

Break Cover is pleased to present Neil Broadchurch.

Neil 2

Neil was originally from Dorset but has never met David Tennent or Olivia Coleman. Neil has a love for Gibson guitars and brings a new but old school tone to the band. Neil has been playing guitar since he had hair (he now uses the same barber as Simon) and until recently was seen playing with Wiltshire band The Schematics.

Neil’s greatest achievement with Break Cover so far has been turning his amplifier up above 2 and he is looking forward to meeting you all over our hectic December schedule.

He will be joining us for the first time at The Wig & Quill in New Street, Salisbury on Saturday 28 November. Please show him your support and come along to welcome him to the band.

First impressions from the Studio

So just in case it was all missed in the rather frantic weekend that passed last week, we took a trip down to Sound on Sound studios near Romsey and laid down a few tracks last Sunday.

Well, we have had the rough draft CD before it’s all finalized, but I can honestly say it is a bloomin’ stormer! I can’t wait to show these off!!! Keep your eyes peeled for when it is going to be available, but I’m excited lots by this CD.

Salisbury Christmas Lights Switch On

SCC-Christmas-Lights-Switch-On-2015 (2)

The countdown to Christmas in Salisbury officially begins on Thursday 19 November with the annual Christmas Lights Switch On in the Market Square from 6pm until 8pm.

This free event, organised by Salisbury City Council, is a great family favourite and marks the start of the late night festive shopping in the City.

The event this year will showcase performances from Faux with their Indie/Alternative Rock mix, a performance from Salisbury’s Starcast Performing Arts School and the very popular Salisbury Plain based covers band Break Cover will be getting us all singing along to a great mixture of festive songs and popular hits from across the decades.

Father Christmas himself is also set to make a guest appearance accompanied by the Mayor of Salisbury Cllr Andrew Roberts and the Dean of Salisbury The Very Reverend June Osborne will give a blessing on the evening.

The countdown to the actual switching on of the City lights starts at approximately 7pm followed by a magical light projection show with stage pyrotechnics. There will also be a number of snow machines around the square to add to the festive feel!
