The Spice of Life - Soho London




Last gig of the tour and what better place to end it in Soho, all though the venue was not the beloved 12 bar where we would always play in soho before the council decided to tare it down (RIP). It was just down the road @ The Spice of Life and we received a warm Soho welcome from the punters, lots of banter and audience participation.

(NEW DATE ADDED) The Rail Way Tavern - Burges Hill

The night before the gig in Portsmouth we received a email asking if we would like to play @ The Railway Tavern in Burges Hill, we had never played in Burges Hill before so we thought why not. Turned out to be a mad Thursday night, and a good mix of a audience.

The Albion - Hastings (NEW DATE ADDED)

While we were in Nottingham we received a phone call from our manager asking if we were interested in playing The Albion in Hastings, we said 'sure why not'. So come the 23rd June we make our way to the Albion in Hastings, sound checked and ready to go. We are greeted by a audience of fire fighters out on a staff party, these gentlemen were kind enough to get the whole place moving in time for everyone else that showed up for some Rock and Roll. This turned out to be one of the best gigs we have ever played. We even threw in a few covers for fun, we will defiantly be returning to Hastings.

Sunday 28th May @ The Prince Albert Brighton

Last night we played a hometown gig @ our local hang out 'The Prince Albert' supporting SMASH with Young Francis for the SPP-Presents promotion nights. It was a brilliant night, and easily the best gig we have played there which is a big shout because it is somewhere we have had so many good gigs, the Alert crowd never lets us down but last night they were even more amazing. We are really happy with how well received the new single and new set is, what a great way to start our journey up north that starts tomorrow.

Friday 26th May @ Bar 42 Worthing

Bank Holiday weekend we played two tour dates, First was Worthing Bar 42, we haven't played Worthing since the 'Dr Weekend' Tour. Was good to be back sand see some of the usual faces we see in the Worthing crowd but got the chance to meet quite a few new ones. Ofcourse we played a lot of new songs and they seemed to go down well.

Radio Play

First week of 'Waiting For The Radio' Single Release, we have had a great response with the online sales and the sales at the gigs. Charlie and Leon made a trip in to Radio Brighton FM to play some songs live and chat about the new single and UK TOUR. then on Wednesday Charlie went in to Radio Reverb to play the new single on his loyal acoustic guitar and chat with Del about the band and plans. Then Thursday had the pleasure of having DJ Keith ' Radio Woking plug 'Waiting for the Radio' and share his feelings on the track. Thank you for all the support so far, lets keep it building and show everyone what the new Dirt Royal sound is all about.

Tune in here to listen to Charlie @ Radio Reverb.
