Better late than never I suppose!

August 10th, 2016

Apologies for the lack of news lately, but the band have been off on holiday for 2 weeks, and are in the process of organising a new revamped website!!! Cunning plans are afoot, with a friend of the band organising the site into a slick, well presented and highly informative piece of PR. Also, the band are in negotiations with a media company to organise a video shoot. Time to bring Michigan into the 21st century! The band want something a bit different, and trying to get their ideas across will probably need Steven Spielberg to direct it!! All will be revealed in due course, so sit down, have a cup of tea and relax. The band have also listed the Christmas Party Night's for 2016, and the Hogmanay Ball all of which are being held at The Avonbridge Hotel in Hamilton once again. If you haven't booked yet, then we suggest you get a jog on as tables are being snapped up !!!

Well I Never!!!

July 13th,2016

During our travels we come across wind swept and interesting people, and last Saturday night was no different. Having initially thought we were being visited by a select group of nuns, once the band started our fears were then realised! The amount of undergarments being shown during the evening was astounding, and in some cases most off putting! Like the true professionals we are, we carried on regardless, but the "nuns" presence certainly added to the fun and frolics off the evening. Mind you, the hall was incredibly warm and by the end we were drained. Still, its only rock n roll.....but i like it!!!

Belated congratulations to Denise and Graham!

June 13th, 2016

Sorry for the late entry, but our warmest and sincerest congratualtions go to the new Mr and Mrs Turpie! The band had the pleasure of playing at their wedding recently at The Vu in Bathgate, and what an amazing night was had by all! The band wish the happy couple all the very best for their new life together. The band would also like to thank the staff for helping them out , and for being so accommodating, whilst working to the clock!!! Cheers guys, you are the best!

Irvine Trades Ball....What a gas,gas,gas!!

May 21st, 2016

What a superb gig last night at the Trades Ball in Irvine! Everyone had a great night, and the band had a blast playing the new songs which went down a storm. Many thanks to all the organisers and staff at the Volunteer Rooms, and especially to Tam [ " the jannie"] for his help and guidance on the night. Sound limiters are a nuisance at times, especially when you are trying to create an atmosphere, but the band got there in the end!

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Mullen

April 30th, 2016

Another absolutely fantastic wedding tonight at The Avonbridge Hotel! Jean and Steven were the glamorous couple, and oh boy, did the guests know how to have a good time! Right from the word go, they were on the packed dance floor and that set the benchmark for the evening! Well done to all concerned!

Thank You The Trades Hall Glasgow!

April 24th, 2016

A huge Thank You to all the organisers and exhibitors at today's Wedding Fayre at The Trades Hall in Glasgow! Made a lot of new friends and useful contacts, and an enjoyable afternoon was had by all. The band played a showstopping set culminating in the Rock n Roll Medley which received a rapturous round of applause!

Hands up if Michigan have entertained you?

April 11th, 2016

The band have been very busy lately with the introduction of the Live Open Rehearsals, and only managing now to catch their breaths! Our congratulations go out to Fiona and William who got married yesterday, and what a lovely couple they make. The band thoroughly enjoyed entertaining everyone, and special thanks goes out to Ian who was a bit of a character! Well played sir.

Cadder....Oh what a night!!

March 13th, 2016

Last night was absolutely incredible! We always enjoy playing at Cadder Freestone in Bishopbriggs, but last night was special. There was a very positive vibe in the hall before the band started, and this continued until the end of the night. It is nights like these that the band thrive on, and the comments from Peter and the rest of the Cadder staff were encouraging and uplifting! It seems we are in a very select band [ pardon the pun], of acts who the patrons of Cadder make a point of coming out to see especially. How lucky are we??? It was also John the drummer's first time at Cadder, and the plaudits he received from staff, and crowd alike lifted John to another level! Michigan just go from strength to strength, and there is more to come yet!!!

Thank you all so much!

February 29th, 2016

Many thanks to all the staff and exhibitors at the Garfield Hotel yesterday who made us feel so welcome, and made the day fantastic. To all the brides to be we thank you for choosing us to entertain you on your special day! We are truly honoured, and humbled by all your kind comments. This is what drives the band on to be even better! Thank you all!

Wedding Fayre

February 22nd, 2016

Michigan are proud to announce that they will be playing at The Garfield Hotel Wedding Fayre on Sunday 28th February 2016! Why not come along and meet the band, and hear them play a selection of modern and contemporary songs from their extensive set? Look forward to seeing you all there!

Johnny B Goode?????

February 21st, 2016

Just a quick shout out to John who played his socks off last night at the Logie Club in Dundee! As you may or may not be aware John is something of a fashion icon, and the introduction of the wristbands was obviously a statement of intent! Well done John!

Full steam ahead!

February 15th, 2016

Many many thanks to all the people who have contacted the band recently to enquire if we are available for their event/function/wedding! The phone hasn't stopped! We really do appreciate all the enquiries, and wish we could fulfill all the commitments!

Ladies and gentlemen....Mr John McMillan!

January 13th,2016

The band are proud to introduce you to their new drummer, Mr John McMillan! John has a very good pedigree, and brings a wealth of drumming experience to the band. He has infectious grooves that have transformed the band's set adding yet another exciting dimension to everyone elses performances. The band are striding ahead into 2016 with renewed vigour. See you all out there soon!

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!!!

December 31st, 2015

Yes indeed it was goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 with a fantastic send off to the year at The Avonbridge Hotel in Hamilton. It was also Arthur's last gig with the band, but Michigan entertained the packed venue with a fine selection of songs , suiting the old and the young! It is going to be a pretty hectic year for the band, as there have been numerous enquiries from brides to be about booking the band for their special day. Onwards and upwards people!

And it's goodnight from him....

December 21st, 2015

It is with a great deal of sadness that we have to announce that Arthur's last gig with the band will be the Hogmanay Ball at the Avonbridge Hotel. External pressures have led Arthur to reluctantly leave the band to allow him the opportunity to fulfill work commitments etc. Arthur has been an absolute gem to play along with, and with his easy going personality and sense of fun, and incredible talent, drove the band on during this past year. The band wish him all the very best, and thank him for his endeavours. 

Xmas Party Night No.6 2015

December 19th, 2015

The best is left too last! Tonight was a phenomenal success, and a fantastic way to end the Xmas Party Night Season. The band really have had a ball, and we have thoroughly enjoyed entertaining everyone who attended one of the Party Night's. The good news is we can do it all again next year only this time make it bigger and better!!! Have a very Merry Christmas from all at Michigan HQ! XXX

Xmas Party Night No. 5 2015

December 18th, 2015

Our purpose in life is to entertain as many people as possible and to ensure that everyone in the room has a good time. Tonight's gig was everything we could have wished for, and the comments we received made us feel as proud as punch. Cant wait for tomorrow night, and hopefully bring the Xmas Party Night's to a climactic  end!

Xmas Party Night No.4 2015

December 12th, 2015

Is there any way we can have these Party Nights every weekend????? What a way to end the week. Hot and sweaty with a great vibe. The "lurgy" is hanging around the band just now, but like true professionals they soldier on in the name of entertainment! Another cracking night with smiles aplenty! What a way to live!!!!

The Unsung Heroes!!!

December 11th, 2015

No its not an Abba Tribute night, it is in fact some of the Avonbridge staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the Xmas Part y Nights run smoothly. A big round of applause to all the unsung heroes! Merry Christmas guys from all at Michigan!

Xmas Party Night No.3 2015

December 11th, 2015

WOW!....Did No.3 go with a bang or what??? These nights just keep getting better and better! The band were on fire, and the crowd were very responsive indeed. Many thanks for all the glorious comments, and we are thankful for them all. You guys make our job very easy indeed.

Well.......How will 3 and 4 go????

December 10th, 2015

The band are excited about the upcoming Xmas Party nights 3 and 4 at The Avonbridge Hotel. Will they be better than last week? Can they be any better than last week? Only time will tell, but we will keep you in the loop!!!

Xmas Party Night No.2 2015

December 5th, 2015

Can one band have any more fun???? The second Party Night was absolutely rammed and the band played a blinder! The Avonbridge was a sweat box, and everyone had a brilliant night! If this a sample of the forthcoming Party Nights then what a delight for everyone! Rock n roll.......WE LOVE IT!!!

Xmas Party Night No.1 2015

December 4th, 2015

The first Xmas Party Night at the Avonbridge was a resounding success! The band had anticipated a good night by the vibe in the room, but the level of enjoyment went supersonic and a good night was had by band and crowd alike! What will tomorrow bring???

The Michigan wagon rolls into town!

December 2nd, 2015

Final touches being put into place for the upcoming "load in" at the Avonbridge Hotel, Hamilton for the Michigan residency for the Christmas Party Night season! The excitement is very palpable, and there are a few surprises this year, but unless you come to one of the Party Night's you will never know! Book now and come along to find out for yourself!

Lord Provost Charity Ball, Dundee

November 27th, 2015

 

The band are heading to Dundee tomorrow to play the Charity Ball and we are very excited about the whole affair!

This will be the lead up to the Christmas Party Nights starting, and we have been told that they will all be well attended this year, which is very encouraging. Load in will be next Thursday, and the Festivities can begin in earnest. Fun times ahead people!!

Omg...... Christmas is coming!!!!!!

October 19th, 2015

Firstly, an apology for the lack of info lately, but the band have been extremely active behind the scenes, in preparation for the upcoming Christmas and New Year Party Nights! We are as excited as something that has recently been voted as "The Most Exciting Thing Ever"!!!! Set list changes, ideas for the Party Nights to have the crowd more involved, lighting, PA, costumes its never ending but be assured these will be the BEST Party Nights EVER!!!!!! We understand that there is limited availablility on some of the nights, so please do not delay........ BOOK TODAY!!!!

Dundee bound this evening!

September 12th, 2015

The band are heading to Dundee this evening to the Logie Club, and are anticipating a good night. They look forward to seeing some familiar faces, and hopefully the "Tablet Lady" will be there to replenish the band's stocks! You know who you are you lovely lady!!!!!

Jordan and Ross....Thanks a Million!!!

August 9th, 2015

What an absolutely fantastic night last night at Kilbrinie. We helped celebrate the union of Jordan and Ross, and oh boy, did they enjoy themselves! The guests were all up for a party, and this added to a very special night. Our sympathies must go out to Ann though, who was tackling severe throat issues, and was swallowing tablets by the handful to try and help get her through the performance. We wish Jordan and Ross all the very best indeed for their future life together!! A big shout out to Malc as well for depping for Arthur. Well done old son!

Wedding Season is upon us!

July 28th, 2015

The band are gearing up for a very busy August, as they have Weddings aplenty this month.  Arthur is back off his travels and the rest of the band are suitably refreshed, so it is all sytems go at Michigan HQ!!! See you all out there!

Discount available on Weddings booked before end of July 2015

July 8th, 2015

Contact us now to find out more about our discount offer on throughout July!

Scott caught smiling....more apologies!!!

July 8th, 2015

It would appear that Scott has been caught openly smiling at a gig recently! As unbelievable as this may seem, the picture is here for you to see. Despite this, Arthur has been away on tour again, Ann is on holiday, Grant has started playing with a new football team, and Steven has been soldiering on manfully especially on the band front. All five will be reconvening soon in preparation for the upcoming Weddings that all five are excited about! Good times!

Apologies, but here's an update.

June 26th, 2015

Sorry for the lack of information recently , but the band have been working behind the scenes on not only all the First Dance songs they have to learn for upcoming engagements, but pushing the promotional side of the business to get the band's name out there. Michigan believe they bring something different to the table in terms of Live entertainment, and they wish to share it with as many people as possible. Plans are afoot to shoot a new promo video, and to schedule in a photo shoot whenever there is a window of opportunity in the band schedule. Enough for now, and heads back to the grind stone! See you all soon!

Amanda and Gianni Capaldi

May 31st, 2015

We would like to wish our good friends Amanda and Gianni all the luck and happiness in the world after helping them to celebrate their wedding at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel today. Peace and contentment to you both!

Hey everyone.....Arthur's back!!!!

May 12th, 2015

With Arthur back from Japan, the band are in the rehearsal room tonight getting all the "First Dance" songs up to speed. The band are extremely lucky to be in the position of having Steven Junior as dep drummer whilst Arthur fulfills his other commitments. A priveleged position indeed. Looking forward to Gianni's and Amanda's Wedding on the 31st. Party on people!

Our unsung hero!

May 4th, 2015

Sometimes Ann's contribution to the band is overlooked, and understated, but she single handedly puts her heart and soul into every function the band plays, and strives to ensure that every function is a complete success! Last weekend saw her work her magic on a Dundee crowd , and at a wedding at Shieldhill Castle in Biggar. A real trouper!

Happy Anniversary!

April 22nd,2015

Well now..... it's been a year since we started this "News" feed page on our website, and it has poven to be very successful with the comments we have received. The band has undergone a lot of changes in the last 12 months, but all positive, and there is a sense of determination about the band now that is all consuming! The band are stepping their game up,  and if you thought they had peaked then think again! Plans are afoot to make Michigan bigger and better so stay tuned! See you all out there.

Says it all really don't you think?

April 13th, 2015

The band were handed this at Whitburn on Saturday. Speaks for itself.

Smile if you know Arthur Cook????

April 12th, 2015

 

Many thanks to one and all who came along to Whitburn on Saturday night to hear the band in fine voice! The band always enjoy playing at Whitburn, and the regulars are very welcoming and make the band's job very easy. The night was topped off with Arthur's family coming along to hear the band for the first time, and they were mightily impressed! Cheers guys!

Sean leads the way!!!

March 22nd, 2015

 

The band were extremely honoured to play at the Ups and Downs Ball at the Alona Hotel, and we have the badges to prove it! The highlight of the night was Sean getting up onstage to play along with Arthur and it was very difficult to hold back the tears when we saw how happy Sean was to be up there! Arthur was as always, a real pro and managed to hold the song together, and the crowd were absolutely magnificent at the end of the song cheering and bringing the house down! Well done to one and all for making the event a tremendous success, and to Edward Reid for his wicked sense of humour at the photo shoot!

Damn... Michigan are already booked!

March 6th, 2015

Humble apologies to all the brides to be that we have spoken to in the last few weeks regarding booking the band for their weddings and unfortunately we are already booked for other weddings! We are always disappointed at letting people down, and if only there were more months in the year! 

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Off to the Fairmuir we go!

February 18th, 2015

It is with great delight that the band head to Dundee this coming Friday night to entertain the fine people of the Fairmuir Social Club. With Arthur back from America, the Fairmuir will have the pleasure of listening to a World Champion drummer playing with the band, and just listen to the difference he makes to both old and new material specially picked for the Fairmuir audience. You lucky, lucky people! See you all there.

Arthur's anti-ageing tablets working well!

February 8th, 2015

With Arthur being away on tour, the band enlisted the help of former member Steven to sit in with the band for Stan and Margaret's retirement bash at the Avonbridge Hotel. It was an excellent evening, and Michigan would like to wish Stan and Margaret all the very best for their new life together in Bulgaria!

Cadder Freestone, Bishopbriggs

January 30th, 2015

The band are playing at The Cadder Freestone Club in Bishopbriggs tomorrow night, and as always, they are really looking forward to seeing familiar faces. The band really enjoy playing this venue, and an added bonus is that there are a number of people coming to hear the band with a view to booking them for their weddings! Good times! See you all there.

Michigan go to France!

January 26th, 2015

Steven and Ann attended a wedding in Courchevel at the weekend as guests, but still took time to hand out Michigan flyers! Grant, Scott and Arthur spent the weekend looking for the spare key for the trailer!!!!

Who is Molly Moo?

January 20th, 2015

We have been asked who Molly Moo is on the credits for our movie trailer. Well, here is a photo of said Molly, who just happens to be the pet of one of the band, but can you guess who?

Hamilton Racecourse Wedding Fayre

January 12th, 2015

The band will be playing "LIVE" this coming Sunday at the Hamilton Racecourse! The Fayre opens at 11.30am, so why not come along and join in the excitement!

Bothwell Bridge Hotel Wedding Fayre

January 11th, 2015

Many thanks to all the brides to be who came along today to the Bothwell Bridge Hotel and met Steven and Ann. It was a pleasure to discuss your plans for your big day, and we look forward to playing at all your weddings! Super venue and the staff were first class.

2014...What a belter!

January 2nd,2015

We ended 2014 in spectacular fashion, and are looking forward to 2015 with great hope and optimism. Can't wait to get back out there and entertain you all! Peace and happiness, Michigan

Party Night No.6 The icing on the cake!

December 21st,2014

The last and final Party Night was truly exceptional. The band played a blinder and the crowd were very responsive, as well as flatteringly complimentary about the band to the point that blushing occurred ! This whole experience has been very humbling, and the band are looking forward to working in partnership with the Avonbridge and Bothwellbridge hotels. They look forward to meeting you all again for next year's Party run.

Party Night No.5 Stunning

December 20th,2014

The band were anticipating having a good night last night and the party revellers at The Avonbridge didn't disappoint. The floor was rammed all night, and the smiles from everyone gave vindication that the band were on the money! This whole experience has become quite humbling, and the band continues to go from strength to strength. Tonight concludes the band's Christmas Party run, and they intend to go out with a bang!

Party Night No.4 Still buzzing

December 14th,2014

Whoa! Can these night's really get much better? Carrying on from last night, and the good news that the band are guaranteed future bookings, the night flew past, and the band gave all they had. Even the serving staff were caught dancing along, and the whole atmosphere was one of enjoyment and happiness. If only we could bottle this 'thing',then the world would be a far happier place! Two more nights left, and traditionally the closer to Christmas the better the night??? Somebody pinch me please!

Party Night No.3 Incredible

December 13th, 2014

What a truly incredible night! Not only did the band play their socks off, but the compliments were flowing the entire night, as well as the news off the band being booked for future Christmas and New Year Party nights! This looks like the start of a very fruitful partnership. Well done to all who attended for making it such a memorable night.

Party Night No.2 Superb

December 7th, 2014

The band thought that the first Party Night would be hard to beat, but last night just edged it Im afraid. The Avonbridge was buzzing from the moment the band went onstage. Non stop dancing all night, and the whole atmosphere was electric. Really looking forward to the next Party Nights. Can they do any better?

Party Night No.1 Fantastic

December 5th,2014

Last night saw the band play their first Christmas Party Night at the Avonbridge Hotel, and the band were very well received indeed! If this is a sign of things to come, then bring it on! To all who attended, you were fantastic, and have set a precedence for the rest of the party season. Let's see how the crowd tonight get on? Can you guys beat last night???

Michigan in residence!

December 4th,2014

The gear gets loaded into The Avonbridge Hotel this evening, as the band encamp themselves ready for the festivities to begin. There is a certain amount of nervous excitement ahead of tomorrow night, but the band are relishing in it's delight. Arthur is really looking forward to it, and has prepared himself mentally and physically for the challenge ahead. Rock on !

Ladies and Gentlemen.....Mr Arthur Cook!

November 26th, 2014

It's been a while since the last news update, but the band have been auditioning new drummers, and finally we have our man! Please welcome Mr Arthur Cook. Arthur is a superlative drummer and has a pedigree second to none in the drumming fraternity. We shall be unveiling Arthur at the Christmas Party Nights at the Avonbridge Hotel in Hamilton. All of the band welcome Arthur, and not only is he a good drummer, he happens to be a decent down to earth guy too!!

Christmas Party Nights Selling Out Fast!

November 1st, 2014

We have been in contact with The Avonbridge Hotel in Hamilton to get some idea of how the numbers are fairing for the  Party Nights, and they have been inundated with enquiries for bookings for all 5 Party Nights with a sixth in the offing! Demand has been unprecedented, and they reckon this will be the best Christmas Party run ever! The Hogmanay Ball is also racking up the numbers, and we here at Michigan HQ are beside ourselves with excitement! Don't miss out....book NOW!

"And it's goodnight from Jim...."

October 24th, 2014

Jimmy has decided to leave Michigan after 6 years, and we wish him all the very best with his future endeavours. A big man with a big heart, and he will be missed, but we respect his decision and must now look to the future.It's business as usual , and the search begins for our new drummer.

Alan and Lindsay Brown's Wedding

October 19th, 2014

 

It's the morning after the night before, and we are still reeling from the fantastic wedding of Alan and Lindsay Brown at the Dalziel Park in Motherwell! What an exceptional night, and one truly special crowd who didn't stop dancing the whole night! What a great advert for the band, and just think, you could have this too if you booked Michigan for your special day!

Wedding Fayre Sunday 5th October 2014

September 28th, 2014

We are playing at the Airdrie Town Hall on Sunday 5th October 2014, in association with Luxe Wedding Shows. We look forward to welcoming you all, and to playing a few selected songs from our expansive setlist. Why not come along and say Hello!

Thank you Stirling!

September 15th, 2014

A very big Thank You to all the brides and grooms who came and spoke to us yesterday at the Wedding Fayre at The Albert Halls in Stirling. It was our pleasure to perform for you all. The band received numerous accolades from the event organisers, other exhibitors, and even the staff from the Albert Halls were very complimentary on the band's sound in particular! A fun day, and fruitful beyond our wildest dreams. Cheers one and all.

Christmas at The Avonbridge Hotel, Hamilton

September 1st, 2014

 

We have been advised by The Avonbridge Hotel that the upcoming Christmas Party Nights are selling out fast, and if you want to book a table for one of these fantastic night's, then availability is running out fast! Why not phone now and book, and sit back and relax in the knowledge that your Christmas is going to start with a bang! The Avonbridge and Michigan at Christmas..........there is nothing better!

Thanks to one and all

September 1st, 2014

 

We would just like to say Thank You to all the people we met on Friday at Newmains Gala Dance, and Saturday at Whitburn Juniors. We were absolutely bowled over by all the nice comments regarding the band, and also the fact that people have gone out of their way to comment on the band's Facebook page. We cannot thank you enough for turning out to see us and making both night's fantastic. We are up in Dundee this coming Friday at The Fairmuir Club, and already there is a buzz in the air. See you all soon. 

And so the music goes on......

August 28th, 2014

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well? The band is motoring along very well indeed with enquiries coming in thick and fast! If you have been on our Facebook page recently you will have seen our recommendation from non other than Mr Gyles Brandreth of Countdown fame! Steven and Ann caught up with him at The Fringe recently, and thoroughly enjoyed the company of Mr and Mrs Brandreth, and he was only too keen to tweet about us! Now there is a conundrum......sorry, couldn't resist it! The band are playing this Friday at Newmains, and Saturday at Whitburn Juniors.  Local gigs but well attended, and a thoroughly good night out. Lots of new songs to try out, and the band are really looking forward to playing both nights. Bring on the dancing barmaids!!! Ta ta for now.

Guess who's back?????

August 8th, 2014

After a month off for holidays, it is now time to put the key back into the Michigan ignition and fire up the beast! Busy time ahead and we are all looking forward to it. During the month off we received numerous enquiries, and we are in the process of dealing with these as a matter of urgency. Oh to be popular eh? Edinburgh tomorrow night, and a chance to dust off the cobwebs and play another round of "Who gets the t shirt?"!

"We're all going on a summer holiday....!"

July 8th, 2014

Michigan are officially on holiday for a few weeks. Ann is off on a whirlwind travel to satisfy her retail needs, Steven is off to Thailand to "find himself", Scott is away looking for something to make him smile [ might be away some time then!], Jimmy is in the Amazon cutting down trees to make himself more sticks, and Grant is studying at the feet of the Dalai Lama [ after all he really likes Tibetan huskys apparently]!! Seriously, we are spent and need to have a wee break, so see you all soon and keep on rocking!

"Hey guys, I think I have found Ann...."

June 26th, 2014

Here is a photograph taken recently of Ann posing in the grounds of Culcreuch Castle in Fintry. The venue and surroundings were absolutely stunning and proved to be an ideal photo opportunity. Well, you know what we are like when a camera is pointed in our direction!!! Wee show offs!

"Hey guys, I think I can see Ann.....!

June 26th, 2014

Hello everyone. Been a bit of a busy time for the band lately between playing weddings, rehearsing, organising next year's diary etc etc , neglected the website slightly so apologies for that. The holiday season is almost upon us once again, and a chance for the band to recharge the batteries. The second half of the year finds the band extremely busy with quite a healthy diary, and of course they top off the year at the Avonbridge Hotel in Hamilton with the Christmas Party Nights and the New Year Ball so if you don't have tickets yet then get a move on as they are on a limited availability. Cheerio for now!

R.I.P Rik Mayall, a comedy legend

June 9th,2014

Hi Scott here. I know this is not Michigan related, but I was sad to hear of the passing off one of many favourite comedy actors Mr Rik Mayall. Both Rik and Ade Edmondson were responsible for moulding my youth with their anarchic humour, and for producing one of my all time favourite programmes "Bottom". His passing has left a large hole in the comedy world and one that I suspect will never be filled. A unique talent and a true comedy great. " May I just say that is a smashing blouse you have on", fantastic stuff Rik R.I.P.

The Golden Pheasant.....Thank you!

June 7th, 2014

A very big thank you to all the people who came along to the Golden Pheasant last night and enjoyed our set. Many thanks also to the staff and management for being so obliging. Do it again sometime?

To quote Rod, "Tonight's the Night"!

June 6th, 2014

It's finally here! The waiting is over! Michigan "LIVE" at The Golden Pheasant this very evening from 9pm. I'm excited even as I type this believe it or not!! Come on son, get a grip, and concentrate. People to be entertained! See all you lovely people later! Cheerio for now.

Oh how we laughed!

June 4th, 2014

 

Here is a picture of the boy's waiting patiently for Ann to rattle up a couple of slices of "toasted cheese"!!! Please note Grant's face! Surely it should be "roasted cheese"???? Ha ha ha .

The tension is building.....

June 3rd, 2014

Only a few more days left until we hit the Golden Pheasant, and oh boy are we excited! Setlists are finalised, gear is packed, transport ready, and band is buzzing.This has all the makings of being a truly exceptional night, so get yourself along, have a drink, and enjoy the band! See you all soon.

One week to go my friends!

May 30th, 2014

We are into the final countdown now with just under a week to go before we hit the stage at The Golden Pheasant. Band are feeling confident, and eager to get out there and entertain. Come along and have yourselves an enjoyable night, with a fantastic "LIVE" party band!

Band rehearsals

May 28th, 2014

Hello everyone. Last night found us hard at it in the rehearsal room. We have been looking at the sets for the Golden Pheasant gig, and rejigged a few songs just to try and balance the sets out. Never an easy task with five different opinions but we shall soldier on. Tried a few First Dance songs for upcoming weddings also which are coming along nicely. Ann especially sounding good on them. More news soon. Cheers. 

"Roasted or Toasted" cheese?

May 26th, 2014

 

Sometimes the trip home after a gig can prove to be both educational and informative. After a recent gig in Edinburgh, the band were deliberating on whether it is called "roasted cheese" or "toasted cheese"? Grant led the way for the "roasted cheese" camp, whilst Scott argued the point that it is "toasted cheese"! Whilst Steven remained focused on his driving, and Jimmy contemplated the issue further, Ann stepped up to the mark and threatened to slap both Grant and Scott if they didn't stop and shut the Hell up! Personally, I always called it Toasted cheese so there!
