Happy Easter folks.
I've painted and rolled my eggs, have you? We had fun this afternoon rolling Eggs in the garden with the kids. My Egg won.
For lunch we had home made Lasagna and chocolate eggs.
Tonight we are playing for a wedding. It's been a lovely day. I'm looking forward to a tune and a good ceilidh....
This cold weather has really been starting to bother me lately. It seems never ending. I can't wait until our trips abroad over the summer. If the Sun won't come to Iron Broo then Iron Broo willl come to the Sun! I'm looking forward to Germany, Sicily and Italy later in the year. I was hoping for a chance to go to Canada too but that might have to wait until next year...we'll see.
Here's hoping Scotland gets a summer this year.
Fred and I are doing a photo shoot tomorrow morning for a publicity spot for a gig Iron Broo are playing at in May. I'll tell you more about that one shortly. Just so I tell you the correct info.
SCAT in Aberdeen will be running an accordion class starting next month. Subject to a to class size of at least 7 pupils attending. I am happy to tell you that I will once again be taking the class after an absence of over 11 years from teaching for SCAT and I am very much looking forward to it. I think it will be held on a Wednesday night for 6 weeks starting 24th April. 7pm till 9pm with a break for refreshmentssshh...
The SCAT website, will have the info up there shortly or you can contact them for the details if you want to learn the piano accordion.
It's been a busy week. We've had a lot of enquiries and have taken 6 more confirmed wedding bookings with some more in the pipeline. Last weekend saw us at Balmoral Castle again. For Gillian and Gary's wedding. What an evening it was. Good crack and it was nice to see so many kent faces fae Ballater. (Fit like Lisa!) It was a bit difficult to drag some folk away from the bar to begin with but in the end we couldn't get them to stop dancing. We had to knock back the request for the third encore after 1am because we thought Lizzie might come knocking.
We made it home safely at around 3am and headed off for a well earned sleep. I managed till about 7am when the kids got up.
I am considering adding a Forum to the site. Any suggestions?
Today - It's a new beginning for Iron Broo. 2013 is going to be a good year for us. We start with our new website. A lot of people commented on how much they liked the last one but I felt I could still improve it as things are changing all the time. So are they way people like to communicate. I've tried to keep up with all these trends and as a result I have integrated some new features to our website. This Blog for example. I'll try and keep it as up to date as possible and let you in on some of what goes on behind the scenes in a busy ceilidh band. More than you can imagine!
In this Blog I'll keep you informed of what I'm doing to Keep Iron Broo at the Top of their game. We are currently no.1 position on FreeIndex in bands categories based on our customers reviews. We have a lot of competition for the 1st spot!
There is also now a facility for you to upload files to our site on our clip page. If you have any pictures or videos you'd like to share with us. Especially if they involve an Iron Broo ceilidh. I'll need to verify them of course.
You can follow us on Twitter or on Facebook now as well. The twitter account is me and there is a dedicated page for Iron Broo on Facebook. Please click the like buttons below if you like us. It's a big help. The site is new and I've lost the old likes so we look kind of lonely here now.
Please feel free to add comments to this Blog. I welcome comments. It will help to keep me motivated to write.
