BrumBeat Bulletin #2

#1,315: Welcome to a somewhat tardy second elobeatlesforever (elobf) BrumBeat Bulletin with some news featuring 'Brum Beat' legends Bev Bevan and Trevor Burton et al.

Earlier this week, drumming legend Bev Bevan - RRHOF 2017 inductee and founding member of The Move, ELO and ELO Part II - made an interesting announcement on his personal Facebook page stating: "Hello facebookers ... It's time to get the band back on the road!". With his Stand Up & Rock! dates with Jasper Carrott now postponed to 2018, this could possibly mean that Bev will be soon rolling out his Zing Band again or perhaps the footage of those rehearsals with Trevor Horn, Chris Norman and Rod Argent earlier this year will coalesce into tour dates. Whatever Bev is alluding to, we look forward to seeing him back on the road soon!

Meanwhile, the 2017 Annual Trevor Burton Charity Show will land at The Austin Sports & Social Club in Longbridge, Birmingham on Saturday 7th October. On the bill are The Steve Gibbons BandThe Trevor Burton Band (of course), Danny King, Zoe Green and Steve Ajao with proceeds going to local charities dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds. Tickets are priced at £12 each (*plus booking fee). Telephone (07775) 714280 or click on these links to buy tickets:

elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends the 2017 Annual Trevor Burton Charity Show to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 07-Sep-2017
