Had a wonderful gig at the Pirates Festival in Whitby today.  Great atmosphere, great weather and some great acts raising funds for the Whitby Lifeboats.   If you didn’t get a chance to come along this year, look out next September for the  3 day Pirates Festival 🙂

Well we are nearly at the end of 2018..and what a year !

Roddy and Jane headed to the UK in November and are currently enjoying reacquainting themselves with the inspiring and eclectic music scene in the Whitby area in North Yorkshire.  The Roddy Gordon Band is currently working on its next album and are looking to record in the New Year.  Watch this space !!12187649_10153714591616952_3710956444543790385_n

A highlight of 2018 for the Roddy Gordon Band was being interviewed on the ABC’s  Peter Goers Radio show and playing live to air …Roddy, Jane and John  were invited to play one original and one cover..so they opted for  ‘Australia’ ( from the Roddy Gordon Band’s  C’ est La Vie album) , followed by Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’.  Thanks to the ABC for this opportunity ……great studio sound!…and , of course, Peter is a pro, great host …lovely man.  The Band hopes to catch up with Peter when they are next in Australia! 🙂
