Time: 8:00pm. Admission: £10/£5 concs.. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: St Lawrence Lane,.

Two bassists and a saxophonist! What a marvellous line-up. Both Andy and Al are tremendous musicians whose music I’ve been a fan of for a long time.

Andy and I have played together before a few times – some of which ended up as the album Nothing Can Prepare.

Al is a wonderful solo musician, and has a fabulous trio project with Mike Outram and Ric Byer (05Ric) called the Snow Giants.

It’ll be a beautiful evening of solo, duo and trio music from all possible combinations!

    Hi Steve,

    Hope all is well. Are you back at Round Midnight soon, if so have you got a line up in mind?



    • Steve

      Hi Kevin,

      I’m not going to be back there any time all that soon… probably will next time Michael Manring comes over cos it worked great for us there… Wasn’t the right venue for what I had planned for the monthly thing…

  • Nebraskan

    Are you coming back to Nebraska any time soon?

    • Steve

      nothing planned at the moment, sadly, but I’m sure we’ll be back in Wisner at some point – we have good friends there :)

  • Slummy9

    What USA cities will you be making appearances at and when?

    • Steve

      Hey, we’re just coming to the end of our tour – it wasn’t widely promoted as it was the first time we’ve done this many shows with our 7 month old son, so didn’t want to have an over-full tour that we needed to cancel if he really hadn’t been into it…

      We’re in Cincinnati on July 6th, then have a private concert in Pittsburgh on the 9th, and then we’re back to England.

    Steve and Lobelia are playing in Leeds on Sun 26 February, support from She Makes War. Details on this link…!!

    Steve … ,

    A concert in The Netherlands would be a dream come true. The Bimhuis in Amsterdam would be a great place for you to play … ! I could even help with contacting them or any Dutch language related things.

    Love your music,
