So today marks 8 years since the very first WagonWheel show. On 30th October 2006 at The Grapes we did this:


There have been a few more dodgy flyers since show #1, and few hopefully not so. We’ve just posted some of them here on our Facebook page.

Those 8 years have seen 219 shows (the full list can be found by clicking here) at 6 different venues, and we start year 9 this Saturday with The Fargo Railroad Co., The Farewell State and Mordrake at Shakespeares. More details for this one can be found on the Gigs page.

Thanks to all who’ve joined us at either side of the mic so far.

We don’t think…

anybody got spooked last night, though are pretty certain those who’d paid to be there and any ghostly lurkers enjoyed the Otis Gibbs show. Thanks to Otis and King Quentin who got the evening off to a fine start at Shakespeares. Thanks to all who made it along too, in or out of body.

We’re back in the Bard’s Bar on Saturday November 1st for the first of four shows we have next month:

- Saturday Nov 1st @ Shakespeares : The Fargo Railroad Co. + The Farewell State + Mordrake

- Friday Nov 14th @ Shakespeares : Rachel Ries + Canyon Family + Ian Bramall

- Thursday Nov 20th @ The Greystones : Wild Ponies + Grassoline

- Saturday Nov 29th @ Shakespeares : Boss Caine + Dave Woodcock + Joe Solo + Richard Kitson

You can find details of all those shows by clicking on our Gigs page. Maybe we’ll see you at one of them.

Anybody that…

had a craving for songs of welding, divorce and unemployment certainly had that satisfied when Rod Picott brought the Circus Of Misery & Heartbreak to The Greystones on Thursday night. They maybe even enjoyed the happy song. We certainly did. Thanks to Rod and Mat Wale for another fine opening set plus of course all of you who came along.

It’s another quick turnaround until our next show. This coming Tuesday October 21st we welcome another resident of Nashville to Sheffield when Otis Gibbs comes to Shakespeares. You can find full details for this show by clicking here.

We’ll be back at The Greystones on Thursday November 20th when Wild Ponies return to Sheffield for their first headline show. Wild Ponies opened for Rod when he was in town last year and also backed him for this own set as part of The Gun Shy Dogs. Support will come from Grassoline. The full preview for this show can be found by clicking here.

Hopefully you can join us at one of those, or any other of our upcoming shows that can be found here.

It had been…

billed as England v Italy, but once again the only winner at Shakespeares last night was music. Big, big thanks to three magnificent bands and those of you who were there to enjoy Roaming Son, Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers and Tsar Nicholas III & The Exiles with us. We can only hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Tomorrow night (October 16th) we return to The Greystones in the company of one of the great American songwriters, Rod Picott. There’s support from Mat Wale too. You can find full details of this show here.

We’re back in the Bard’s Bar on October 21st when Otis Gibbs comes to Shakespeares. Details for this one are here.

Maybe we’ll see you at one of those?

WWP 14.10.14

C is for cookie…

A is for… well let’s not get into that, except to say thanks to the amazing Matt Andersen for yet another fantastic show. Thanks of course also go to M&J Blues for a fine opening set and you if you were one of the many people that filled the Bard’s Bar at Shakespeares last night. We certainly had a great time.

We’re back at Shakespeares twice next month. Firstly on October 14th we have a triple bill of Roaming Son, Stiv Cantarelli & The Silent Strangers and Tsar Nicholas III & The Exiles before October 21st sees the return of Otis Gibbs.

Meanwhile on October 16th we’re back at The Greystones when we’re joined by Rod Picott. You can find previews for all of next month’s shows by clicking here.

Maybe we’ll see you at one of them.

That wasn’t…

a bad way to spend a Saturday night, was it? An evening of fine music from The Listeners, Mat Wale, Anytown and Huw Costin. Big thanks to all of them and all who came along to Shakespeares last night too. We certainly enjoyed it a lot.

Our next show sees us back in the Bard’s Bar on Saturday September 27th when we’re joined by Matt Andersen and M&J Blues for what promises to be another special night. A full preview for this show can be found by clicking here. We hope you can join us then.
