New year news

Firstly, a belated happy new year to everyone!

We kick off 2017 with a return to The Queens Hall in Nuneaton on Saturday 28th January. Always a good night at this venue so hopefully we’ll see you there! We then follow that up with a return to Derby and fingers crossed yet another sell-out at The Flowerpot. That’s on Saturday 18th February.

See our ‘live’ page for details.

As things stand those two shows are the only ones confirmed in the early part of the year before we play the Benn Hall in June. We have deliberately kept our diary light in the short term due to us needing to be certain about various band member’s availability before committing to shows with our venues. We’re all busy people and getting us the same room at the same time is no easy task! Please bear with us as 2017 might well be a bit of a transitional year but rest assured, we remain fully committed to continuing DSOTW’s considerable journey.

Finally, we are sad to say “goodbye” to Sofia who has had to take the decision to stand down from her 5 year long role as one of our backing singers. Her contribution since her debut in 2011 has been massive and she will be missed by us all, none more so than her fellow band members. However, the positive in all this is that she is now embarking on a career as a full-time professional singer, and whilst that makes her unavailable for our shows, this is her dream job and we sincerely wish her every success in everything she achieves in future. She will always be welcome and will always be one of the DSOTW family. In the short term Louise and Andy, with a little extra help from Jon, will make sure the backing vocals still shine on!

We look forward to seeing everyone in Nuneaton at the end of the month!

Shine On
