Fraser & The Alibis - Seasonal Newsletter
Happy New Year to all! We hope this email finds you well.
Well, no-one likes a bragger, but 2018 was a truly great year for us. Following the successful launch of our debut album in ‘17 we played another sold out tour to the people of London, Cardiff, Swansea and Bristol. Throughout the year we also continued playing regular gigs at our friends’ night-spots, Kansas Smitty’s and Zedel. Our second album is also mastered and ready to go, more info on that as soon as we have it!
One of the many highlights of last year was Cable Cafe Christmas with our good pal Jo Harrop.
First up for us this year is Ronnie Scott’s. Jumping in to 2019 at the deep end you might say? Well that’s how we like it! You can catch us on Monday **28th Jan** at the Late show, presented by our man Alex Garnett.
To come this season:
Jan 12th, Round Midnight @Zedel, Picadilly
Jan 28th @ Ronnie Scott’s, Soho
Feb 15th @ Kansas Smittys, Hackney
Mar 1st @ Round Midnight @Zedel, Picadilly
(Zedel/ Smittys feat. special guest Matt Skelton)
Mar 30th @ Jazz Up, Hitchin
