Recent Open Mics

We’ve been getting up to some live action by appearing at a few open mics recently.  We ventured out of town to Bromborough, playing at Nathaniel’s Bar.  That was a good jam-packed night, but unfortunately the venue’s closed down now, so we’ll have no more of that there.

Closer to home, we’ve been appearing at the Chi (Chichester Arms, Garden Lane) on Monday nights.  It’s generally very bluesy down at the Chi, but my stuff sits in well alongside all that.  It’s good to make a change anyway.

We’ve also been showing up for live open mic action at the Carlton Tavern, in Handbridge, the last coupla Tuesdays.  We’ve made a few new friends there, as we haven’t been for ages.  It’s good to meet new people…..(I know the people aren’t that new, they’re old enough to drink, but you know what I mean!)…..as well as catch up with some older acquaintances.

Carlton Festival

We  have a proper gig at the Carlton Festival today (Fri 3rd May).  It’s part of their 5th Anniversary festival happening this weekend.  We’re kicking the whole thing off at 7-00pm, so if you want to catch us make sure you’re early!  We only have a short set allotted to us, so if you arrive late you’ll probably miss us.

Call out to venues

We’re still looking for more gigs, so any venues/ promoters out there please get in touch.  Contact us via the email link at bottom of page, or message via our Facebook pageShem Sharples Music.

Next Facebook Live shows

We have some Facebook Live shows coming up next Wednesday, 8th May, starting at 7-30pm on our Shem Sharples Music page.  The next one after that is on Wednesday 22nd May (7-30pm).  It’s good fun doing those.  If you want some live music streamed into your living room, then this is for you.  You can comment in real time, and I’ll give you a shout and answer any questions and generally have a conversation with whoever wishes to post comments.  We play around 5 songs and it usually lasts about 30 mins in all.  Join in with us, it’s fun!  We do them every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month – always at 7-30pm.

Anyway that’s all I have for you concerning Shem Sharples live action at the mo’.   See you next Friday x
