NEXT UP - THE BIG HOUSE BLUES BAR
On November 23rd the band return to The Big House Blues Bar in Darwen for their last gig of 2019. The venue is a gem sporting great food and drink at very reasonable prices and a great crowd will hopefully be on hand again. This is the third time we will be performing in Darwen with the last two being very well received. I'm sure we will see many familiar faces and hopefully many new faces as well so for all things Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow the Blues Bar is the place to be.
BAZ IS HANGING UP HIS STRAT
After 15 years our very own Man In Black is calling it a day. It was not an easy decision for Barry to make but he has been toying with the idea for a couple of years now so it hasn't come as a huge surprise. To say he will be missed by his bandmates and the hoards of friends he has made along the way would be an understatement and one thing is for sure he has recreated the sounds of Ritchie Blackmore to perfection. His last gig will be at The Diamond in Sutton-In-Ashfield in February 2020 so please make sure to attend to give him the send off he truly deserves. Rainbow Rising will continue so look out for further announcements.
