Official announcement from Twelfth Night:
So as promised before the summer hols, we are now able to confirm the line-up for the November shows!!!!
We are delighted to say that original members Andy Revell and myself, will both be joining Clive Mitten and Andy Sears, along with new boy Mark Spencer.
Which means it’s now officially a ‘Twelfth Night’ reunion !!
Rev & I have actually been involved in the project from the outset, but had simply needed some time to convince ourselves that we would be able to play again – as both of us ‘retired’ from active musical service a long time ago !
Mark has been drafted in, as Rick wasn’t able to join us, to take on keyboard / guitar and backing vocal duties, multi-talented chap that he is. (If you think his name is familiar – beside being a long-standing friend of the band – he was the singer in 80s prog band LaHost).
Our first full band rehearsal weekend went very well considering it was the first time we had played together for more than 20 years !! And although we can’t guarantee to be quite as brilliant (ahem !) as we used to be !! ……….. we are confident that it will all be ‘alright on the night’, and that both gigs will be a ‘night to remember’ ……… to use but two of our old clichés !!
We expect news of the reunion line-up will accelerate the sale of tickets – which are going well already, with both venues reporting strong advance sales !! …………….. so if you want to make sure of seeing us, PLEASE get your tickets as soon as possible. Details can be found on our web-site. www.twelfthnight.info
Talking of which we are only playing the 2 already announced gigs (Kingston 17th, & Deptford 24th) as we have been unable to agree a suitable gig in the North this time. However if these gigs go well …….. who knows what the future holds ?!
We are all looking forward immensely (albeit with some nervousness) to playing together and seeing so many old friends again – and are sure that we’ll all have a great time!
This is the news I’d hoped for. Brian Devoil had been participating in the Yahoogroup, so I’d sort of assumed he’d be involved. But Andy Revell’s participation with his very distinctive guitar sound means that it will be Twelfth Night.
