Hi. Just thought you might like to see the attached picture. Mydaughter's school has an annual competition for a display of decoratedeggs. These are always themed and corny - an egg halfway up a mountain(Sir Eggmund Hillary and his Everest Eggsploration) and so on. Mydaughter Ruby won this year with her display: the Eggdgar BroughtonBand. The picture shows you all on stage, but it also included an MP3player playing a loop of 'Hotel Room' and 'Evening Over Rooftops'. As afamily of Broughton-fanatics, we were ecstatic that she won. Hope youlike the pic.Me and my wife Rachael went to see you in Bristol earlier this year. Wewondered when you might be doing more gigs in the south-west, andwhether any of these would be venues that would admit kids. We have a15-year old, 14-year old, and Ruby (12) desparate to see you live.All the best, and keep up the wonderful work.
How cool is the above ? It was very nice to get this e mail and we are all very touched by Ruby's lovely and SO COOL tribute.
Tom aged 12 got in touch recently. The autographs are on their way mate.
The new generation of First Supperists is here.
The Ebb rehearsed at the weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Dave produced a box full of effects pedals he has been collecting since the last gigs. What a collection! We spent a lot of time playing around with sounds and auditioning his new Line 6 guitars. The days of almost immediate sound gratification are here and now. The Line 6 guitars offer a variety of instruments types and sounds at the flick of a switch. Dave has an electric six string and acoustic model. They both reproduce a variety of instruments very efficiently and you can hear them in action at the upcoming gigs. So Line 6 if you would like to send me a free sample or two I will be more than happy to use 'em. Sunday was spent refining some new songs including searching for the definitive arrangement for Six White Horses and changing the set a little. All in all Sunday was a breeze. The EBB are on full power and looking forward to heading north.
We are very happy to welcome Chrissy Hamlin to the EBB team. Chrissy is handling our press and publicity. Some of you will have seen Chrissy's re vamped My space site. Any one who has asked to be an EBB My space "friend" should re apply. I can't promise all messages will be answered but we will do our best as and when we have time.
