FABS MECCA THEM HAVE IT!
Mecca bingo, Beeston.

It was enough to make you get down and pray at Mecca bingos Beeston branch last saturday. We were all eyes down looking at this all new flagship bingo hall. A big thanks to all the VIP guests who helped make it a full house and of course the two fat ladies, etc, etc.

TOP NIGHT AT THE TOP SPOT
Carlton Hill, Nottingham.

Yes, Its a welcome return to Carlton's classic Top spot. Always a great night made even more exciting by the prospect of a return to real drums in this venue. Gaz has previously been compelled to use his "vintage electronic kit" to keep his infernal taping down to an acceptable level. This alternative percussion equipment has the appearance and musicality of R2D2 smashed with a sledgehammer. We are all very pleased to see the Ludwig back where it belongs.

THE THURLAND BIRTHDAY PARTY
4th April Thurland St, Hockley, city centre Nottingham.

You are all invited to Georginas Birthday Party at the all new Thurland on Thurland St in Nottingham city centre. The beautifuuly refurbished bar is a pleasure to behold and well worth a look particularlly as your favourite Beatles band are playing there on the 4th April. Come down and marvel at us and them....

Roy De'Wired
http://www.roydewired.com/

Our January was darkened by the sad news of the passing of Nottingham's own Roy De'Wired. Roy was a good friend of ours, a talented musician and a genuinely great bloke. The Fab4 will be playing at a memorial show being planned for the summer. See you later Roy we love you.

FABS OCTOBER SPOT TOUR
28th and 29th October 2010 SPOTS of Nottingham

Yes, there will be spots quiet literally before their eyes as the Fab4 attempt to play two spot named venues on successive nights. The TOP SPOT in Nottingham on the 28th and the SPOT in Derby on the 29th. To avoid the local rivalry that exists between the two towns. The fabs will play exactly the same set at both events. Gary said "I'm not taking any chances. I'm wearing the same socks too" A consideration we apologise for in advance.

Details of how to get to the glorious Cuttle Inn

Busy times ahead for our boys in 2010 So who can blame them for taking it easy during a recent Photo shoot. This is exactly the way they behave on the beach and actually won them a prize on the Spanish tour for Formation sunbathing.

FABS BACK IN NOTTINGHAM IN 2010
A recent audience poll revealed local fans unhappy with the lack of Fab4 action in their home city of Nottingham. "Its all very well you going off to Spain but what about us?" said local boys Paul and John. "INo one goes home empty hearted, particualrly at christmas time, in the Fab4 world so to remedy this shortfall The Fab4 are back at the Approach every first Thursday of the Month in 2010. If that wasn't enough they are also playing the Southbank in Trent bridge once a month too.

FAB4 IN EASTWOOD CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SPECTACULAR
24th November 2009 7.00 pm

Thank you one and all for coming down to the Eastwood show this November to witness the Christmas lights being quite literally turned on! The Fab4 played a rather wind-swept set to the gathered throng. Unfortunately the show had to be cut short due to the unusually high winds. "We started playing in Eastwood but had to stop the show when we were passing over Heanor" said a spokesman for the group "We promise to come and finish the set in the summer. Hopefully we will have recovered Ringo by then who is still circling over Kimberley. There is a ten pound finders fee if he happens to come down in your garden"

SMEDLEY TO THE RIGHT!
John Smedley are celebrating 225 years as specialists in fine, lightweight knitwear. We worked out they were the best years ago and chose to get our trademark black roll necks from this company when we started out. They have served as a staple of our stage wear over our entire career. The boys at Smedley recognised this achievement this week with a special prize! Thank you Jonathan. We are sure to be wearing them for the next two hundred years!
Full story....... here!

EL FAB4 CONQUER SPAIN
The Fabs return hot foot (And hot everything else) from a trip to Spain this week. The Fab4 performed to a 1000+ crowd on the sweltering Costa Blanca. The marathon two hour set left the boys "rather warm" in their polo neck jumpers. It was a great way to spend a Spanish evening and lose half your body mass. It was so hot Gaz even lost his phone. The locals were fantastic and plans are already afoot for a full Costa tour in the new year. That's right, next year were off to sunny Spain, etc, etc, repeat ad nauseam. Many thanks to Alan, John and all the staff at TJ'S for making us so welcome.

Blues Bit www.thecoals.com
The Coals are set to rock in the new year and have been busy recording a demo at moonys black hole studio. Security is so tight, light can barely escape from his tape vault. Live appearance is definitely on the agenda with the Coals planning "a gig at least " in 2013. Blue said "We must apologise to the fans that we didn't gig much in 2012. JP had a bit of a cold......". The illusive coals have a plethora of new material. When asked Gaz enthused " I really like cheese with a glass of port perhaps..."

Richies Bit www.richardsnow.co.uk
Richard has 2 albums out on the sideBmusic label, made with a little help from his small combo The Inlaws. With Jangley guitars and harmonies there's a definite west coast sound which Richard thinks may have come from a childhood holiday in Wales.
