Website updated (September 2020) - The world on-hold (best viewed on PC)
Six months ago I said I was looking forward to a holiday with a gig in California, USA. And then to return to an action-packed year of gigging.
Well, the first part went perfect. However, within a few weeks of returning, the world fell upside-down. The virus took over our lives and all gigs and concerts scrapped until further notice.
Whilst I'm still working from home I've turned my recording studio (or should I say, third bedroom) into a multi-functional office. Still no room to swing a cat (metaphorically speaking, cat-lovers), but with more monitor screens than Air Traffic at Heathrow. Slight exaggeration, but it does look serious.
I'm also utilising this quiet gig-free opportunity to re-record my old backing tracks and add some new ones too in the process.
My Gretsch from the USA, in a beautiful gold, is amazing and begging for rockabilly, so there's a few more of those in the mix now too.
On the subject of new gear, my trusty old rack system and mixer have been sold on to new lucky owners, and I now own two EV Evolve 50 PA systems, together with an RCF M18 digital mixer. This saves about half of my boot space in the car (and my back), but with superb sound, power and flexibility. I just need gigs to use it all together in 'anger'!
Also, new software and hardware for my recording is in full swing, opening up newer sounds and feel to my tracks.
I have updated my Gear page at last!!!!
In the meantime, I refuse to join the 'band-wagon' and perform on live lounge media sites. I'd rather use my time to revamp my act and liven it up with new music and sounds. If you want to know more, let me know.
To everyone out there, including fellow musicians, let's get through this and come out on the other side keen as mustard to perform again in whatever venues survive this mayhem. Stay safe!

Originally formed from a duo called DOUBLE DEE over 25 years ago, Dale performs in Clubs, Pubs, private functions and charity events most weekends, entertaining all age groups and travelling anywhere between Lincoln and London.
Originally taught the basics by his father, Dale has mastered the guitar by playing along to records of instrumentals 40 years ago from Hank Marvin and The Shadows, and many more. His vocal talent came into being whilst singing with several bands since school and finely honed during his duo act over the last 20 years.
His repertoire includes many hits and genres from the 50’s through to the present day, and with his line-up of Fender and Burns guitars, can provide a varied Hank Marvin/Shadows tribute act if required. He still performs with the duo on occasions.
In addition to all this, Dale has recently teamed-up with a former band colleague of 3 years, and with his colleague from Double Dee, to form a trio called D'ManD. Check out the 'News' page for more information.
Finally, not only providing live music, his acts can provide discos, usually at weddings and birthdays. The disco comes complete with a large selection of different music genres and has a comprehensive light show.
If you wish to discuss your requirements for your function, don’t hesitate to contact Dale (see Contact tab).
