SMOKIE BACK TO EDWARDIAN TIMES

Another pair of great shows over the weekend once again, and as always Denmark remains a favourite place for Smokie and a country that has firmly supported the guys religiously over the years.

This weekend was also a time to change our clocks to a summertime setting causing ALL band members and crew to complain about a lack of sleep. There was also a major concern that their smart phones and other gadgetry wouldn't calculate the change, and allow alarm settings to wake them in time.   Cue Martin . . . .

. . . . In Edwardian times in England, there was a Man who was called the "Knockerupper" he would go round the streets in the early hours of the morning and with a long pole, he would bang on people's bedroom windows and get them up for work. Anyway this weekend Martin decided to take on that roll of "Knockerupper" and at requested times, Martin walked round the hotel knocking up band and crew. Martin always rises early; there was only one person who was late. wonder who?

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Alan Barton. His sudden death sent shock and horror throughout the band and all his friends, and his untimely departure left a giant hole in everyone’s heart. He is still deeply missed.

We will all raise a glass in his memory. Cheers Barty!
