Ruby Lounge gig the best yet

Massive thanks to all who turned up at The Ruby Lounge, Manchester last night. It really was something else. The support acts Sarah Dixon, Anne-Marie Johnson and Modern Alarms produced knock out sets. As a band we just fed off the general vibe of the crowd and the atmosphere was electric. It was great to showcase new track ‘Is that what you want’ amongst the usual Rainband favorites.

To cap another enormous week we have been confirmed to support the Fun Lovin’ Criminals in the Autumn along with dates with Ocean Colour Scene and James Walsh (Starsailor).

See you all down the front at The Friends Of Mine Festival in 4 weeks time!
