The onset of the biggest storm in the history of the world was not going to stop us making the trip to Leicester. I had taken all precautions. The car was loaded: chainsaw, mop and bucket, various changes of clothes and first aid kit. I had heeded the advice from the media: I would indeed be driving at an appropriate speed with the expectation that around every bend I would find a fallen tree blocking the road.
Suffice to say, we made it one piece. Mainly due to the fact that there wasn't a storm. Shock horror.
Q: Why risk life and limb?
A: The fantastic Beans on Toast playing at the equally fantastic Cookie Jar.
'Beans' was on top form, as usual. What you get when you attend a Beans on Toast gig is entertainment. Whether it be the tunes, the storytelling, the banter, or the fact that you never quite know what you are going to get. It never fails to entertain. Tonight 'Beans' was sandwiched between the fabulous Will Varley (well worth googling) and the rather loud Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun.
In other Beans on Toast news…..
- He'll be supporting Frank Turner on the up and coming UK tour.
- New album 'Giving Everything' out on 1st December.
