As we've moved through the summer, Murray and
Dave's special brand of Acoustic Rock, Funk and
Soul has been gaining more attention from fans
and media alike.
The past week was filled with scheduled appearances at the Riva, the Cambridge Street Festival (and another visit with the fabulous Sue Marchant, where listeners were treated to unique, never performed versions of Murray Hockridge's Barriers Down and a favorite from Dave's Scarlet album, Brightest Star. The arrangements were all-new and the enthusiasm was astounding. Thanks, everyone, for the compliments.
Here, courtesy of Sue Marchant are pictures of Murray and Dave from the Cambridge Festival and from the Riva. Thanks, Sue!
Cambridge Street Festival
There were also random interviews with newspapers, radio, and television stations in the Cambridge area during the festival - we will try to share them with you in the coming weeks.
Riva August 10th and Shore Thing August 15th and 16th
After a hectic and wonderful time filled with performances at the Riva, in Cambridge, with the lovely and fabulous Sue Marchant on her BBC Cambridgeshire radio program and random television and radio interviews, Murray and Dave return to the Riva for another relaxing Sunday afternoon "chillout" performance. Last time, the Riva was blessed with lovely weather and the performance was enjoyed outdoors... we hope the same will be true again!

The Sunday afternoon Chillout series, which begins about 12.45pm or so and goes til about five pm, has proved increasingly popular and developed a loyal following. It is an intimate venue and Dave and Murray have been having great fun with both the music and the audience. Please join us! The venue is situated within a new glass building housing the Key Theatre and is next to the river - a perfect setting for the warm weather.

The gigs will be outdoors if the British summer allows... but if it's cold or raining (or both!) the performance will go ahead inside.

Dave and Murray played for the first time at Shore Thing Acoustic in Bournemouth back in November; they were so popular they have been invited back for back to back dates on August 15th and 16th. The setting is lovely, with a view of the Isle of Wight. Shows begin in the evening and reservations can be made for dinner,too, if you like, but it isn't required :o)) More details can be found on the tour dates page (click here).
