A wonderful weekend

Break Cover are now on holiday (with the exception of some private function stuff happening out of sight of the public) until 1 October.

However before we go we have to comment on the weekend just gone.

Huge thanks to Neil and Ray for stepping in for Terry and Dave who escaped before the main holiday!

Friday night saw a surprise opportunity to play a gig at one of our favourite venues; Qudos Music Bar & Grill in Salisbury.  As usual, it was amazingly hot and the audience sang along, danced and fell over throughout the night so a huge thank you to the staff for all their hard work in the heat and another huge thank you to the audience for giving it everything!

Then on Saturday after a few years of various things getting in the way we finally made it to FirsFest’16 .

The effort put in by the organisers to make this free festival work is clearly huge and all the volunteers that put in their time and effort needs to be massively applauded. The whole thing ran like clockwork and the standard of the bands throughout the day was exceptional. Salisbury is a City with a tremendous musical heritage and a living, vibrant live music scene and this was hugely on display this weekend.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to the incredible people who turned up to see the bands and stayed for the whole day. You were a tremendous audience and gave us such a huge welcome for our first time.

Well done also to the firework team who put in a huge amount of effort for the grand finale

Thank you all so much that was amazing!

A fantastic weekend approaches…

Occasionally we are lucky enough to play two gigs over the Friday and Saturday night of a weekend.

Very occasionally that weekend is just a little bit special. This coming weekend is one of those weekends.

We welcome two very special guests to help make this weekend a magnificent party: Our friend Neil is back on guitar duties while Terry is again off on his travels and as Dave is also away enjoying another country, so we welcome back stalwart bass player Ray!

Expect shenanigans…

First up this weekend we are back in one of our favourite venues Qudos Music Bar & Grill.

With an audience that is always up for it, there is something wonderful about playing here on a hot and steamy summer night. Sweaty dancing and raucous singing along is to be expected!

Then on Saturday is a music lover’s treat. FirsFest ’16 (which also has bands Friday) is an all day Festival in a beautiful part of Wiltshire.

The weather forecast is looking really good so if you want a beautiful day out, surrounded by some wonderful countryside with some of Salisbury’s best eclectic bands then FirsFest ’16 from Firsdown Music Festival, Firs Road, Winterslow is the place to be. The event on Saturday closes with a set from us and then a firework display.

We would love to see you at one or both of these events. Whatever you choose to do – have a rocking weekend!
