2016! What a year to be alive!
Pheebs and I are still here ticking along, this will be our 7th year of Mimosa. Woo woo! From a couple of romantic camping holidays to Mimosa Rocks National Park to a full time job is a good little story. Pheebs has expressed keen interest in obtaining a mandolin and both of us have been practicing our vocal chords of late so hopefully within the next few months we will be delving into some new territory and chucking it in the Mimosa bag! We will of course keep up with the Gypsy Jazz as that love goes deep, and hopefully get cracking on a new album soon… That plus gigging all over the country equals lots of things to look forward to this year!
If you are in Wollombi area we will be playing in Laguna tomorrow night at the Northern Trading Post. As usual we would love to see you there.
We will soon also be playing at the Gosford Blues Festival. One gig each day from Fri the 19th to Sun the 21st. We will be hosting a free Gypsy Jazz masterclass on the Saturday too so if you are in the area with your instrument (or without it will still be fun) please swing along by and have a play with us! In Jan we went to the Gulgong Festival and along with performing held a masterclass then which was great fun!
The marvelous Manly Fig has started up new venue at the ‘War Vets’ in Collaroy Plateau. This one is on a Wednesday from 1pm – 4pm so if you can fit that in, Manly Fig gigs are the best! There are two other acts on that arvo and Steve and Robbie who put the gig on always get good acts along side being great people themselves! This gig doesn’t replace their normal Saturday night events, but they are looking for a new venue for that, so if you have any ideas or contacts please let me or them know!
Here are a couple of gigs coming up, for more info and to see when we will be at the Rocks follow the link below to our website:

Happy birthday Minten!
