A trio of Beat Surrender favourites have some shows coming up next month, the erstwhile Danny George Wilson the frontman of country rock ‘n’ rollers Danny And The Champions Of The World is playing will play a series of solo-acoustic shows throughout September along with Robin & Joe Bennett (The Dreaming Spires) and Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou, Danny will be playing songs from the three Champions albums as well as tracks from his not inconsiderable and top-notch back catalogue as a solo artist and with Grand Drive, the venues promise up-close and personal shows not to be missed.
Clubhouse Records artist The Dreaming Spires released a cracking album earlier this year Brothers In Brooklyn if you not heard it yet I’d recommend you seek it out, with Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou along for the ride too what are you waiting for.
