15/05/2022. Peace people, We had a great time playing Mr wolfs yesterday, A very enjoyable restart to our live shows after many months of waiting for venues to fully open up, Much love to everyone who was there supporting us, love to the support band The sunshine blues band do “check them out”.
Now looking forward to our next performance at The Komdia in Bath Next Friday the 20th, Look forward to seeing more new faces there.
& Remember; the latest updates can be found at www.vonjlive.com
wishing you all a grand new week!
I hope everyone has been doing positively well through life?
My posting on all my platforms has not been frequent, However I have been working real hard on what I call my ‘foundation years’, already established my philosophy a while ago, Since then my journey has been all about putting my thoughts into practice. I take each day as a learning experience, whatever I did yesterday I make a duty to improve on it today, whether it being my interactions with family & friends, my craft within music, dealings in business etc, but more on this on another post..
The time has finally come to begin to start doing shows!, As some of you know the last time I performed was December 2019, I had Gigs booked all through out the summer of 2020, But all that got wiped off, ‘we all know & felt what happened’, Now this could have broken me down, someone like me who has a great passion for music & live performance, But through those hard months I put my energy into building my studio, ‘Cave music studios’ in Bath, I can tell you my biggest reward has been taken in from seeing musicians come in the studio to rehearse & record & leaving the space with smiles on their faces, This has kept me grounded, & I remain really grateful to everyone who has supported me & the studio thus far.
With regards to the band members, Just like some of you it has not been easy through the pandemic, but somehow even through these 2 years we have managed to stick together, Only addition to the group since 2019 is Alex Alderson on Keyboards, who has brought a good balance to the overall sound, I refer you to the vonjlive.com to read more about him.
We are looking forward to start playing live as a group, Currently Scheduled to headline a few events starting close to home..
May 20th @Komedia ‘electric bar’ Bath
June 3rd @The Exchange – Bristol
July 2nd @St James wine vaults – Bath
August 5th @Bell back bar – Bath
September 17th @Zed alley – Bristol
To book the band please contact me on..
Time has been over due for some live music! Hope to see you guy’s in these venues, Will be posting details for each event soon.
Otherwise I wish everyone a positively progressive day.
Peace & Blessings.
Greetings people, Hope everyone has been progressing well during these recent times?
It’s been a while now since I published on these platforms, But now I figure it’s the right time to start keeping you all informed here on the latest news.
First I thank everyone who’s been there backing me up & supporting all the projects I have relentlessly continued to build on in the past few months, The journey toward total independence is a testing one, But I see hardships all as part of the process toward success.
As you all know this pandemic had halted live shows, However things now are changing for the better & will be ready to announce some local shows soon, Me & the band are certainly looking forward to make a comeback, & continuing from where we left off.
There’s also a studio album that has been in the works of which I really am looking forward to release, dates will be announced soon on www.vonjlive.com,
With regards to ‘Cave Music Studios’ in Bath, I keep looking forward to see new musicians come through each week to rehearse & record here, You can have a look at what we do on www.cavemusicstudios.co.uk, & if interested in practising or recording feel free to send your enquiries to email@example.com
Will expound upon each of the projects I am involved in on a separate post, In the meantime I wish you all a productive & blessed week.
Peace & love.
What a year this has been for everyone,
To those who have overcome the year I really applaud you for advancing against all the adversities.
Everyone who knows me knows my passion for live performance, so one can imagine how disrupting these times have been with most live music events limited or totally cut off, especially with those like me who have been trying hard to bring the masses together for live music, nothing lasts forever though & I am very much looking forward to announce the next shows!.
For those that have been following the music, Unity is power E.p. will be completed as an album in the new year, & I guarantee it will be worth the wait.
Currently there’s one thing I would love to make you aware of, if you don’t already know I have a recording studio in the heart of Bath UK “Cave music studios”, we are offering spaces for artist’s, bands, to record & rehearse.
We are keeping this space ALIVE offering affordable rates; also looking to promote musicians that come through, so I will appreciate if you go to the website pages & show love & support..
Stay tuned, & I wish everyone a blessed & progressive time as we approach the end of the year.
Peace & Love
