Recommended: Bates McBain

#314: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! I think it may well be correct to presume that after their gigs in April of this year; the acclaimed trio who are Beatles Blues and Blue Violin Project (BBBV) will alas be no more. But, on the other hand, when one door closes, another one presents itself to open. I'm pleased to confirm that Tina McBain and Phil Bates will continue to gig together - starting in October 2012 - as Bates McBain:
Tina informed ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) that the dates will be in the last week of October and the first week of November 2012. There are also some special Christmas shows planned. The show is subtitled The Eclectic Collection. Speaking about the new project earlier today, Tina said:

"The idea behind "The Eclectic Collection" is that it is just songs that me and Phil love to sing. That might be Blues, Folk, Jazz, covers and originals - just stuff we like!"
