It’s a sad time for BOC as our drummer Chris will be downing his sticks and taking his leave from the band very soon. Chris has been with us for nearly a decade and his awesome skills have helped elevate the band to where we are today. He has kept us laughing since the day he joined, that cheeky grin and sharp wit will be sorely missed! Chris’ last official outing with BOC will be at the Kings Arms in Frating on Friday 29th November . . . so be sure to come along and give him the bloody big bouncing send-off he deserves!
We will make an announcement about his replacement in the coming weeks.
Congratulations to Ellie and the team for last night's brilliant fundraiser for the Blossom Appeal . . . we had a blast playing and the crowd were on their feet from the first track!
This weekend we are playing in support of the 'Blossom Appeal' (raising funds for the breast cancer unit in Ipswich Hospital). Tickets are now all sold out but please take a moment to check out the charity website.
Happy birthday to Sue & Kerry whose birthday part we played last weekend. The whole party was organised by their daughter Ashley from the other side of the world in Australia, and she surprised everybody by turning up!
Last night we were playing alongside our friends Hoaxx featuring former BOC members Matt and Gary. The first time the original lineup has been in the same venue for nearly a decade! Thanks to everyone who came along to make it such a memorable evening!
The next gig at the Railway in Ipswich will be a double bill with Hoaxx who will be starting the show at 8pm - this is the band formed by original BOC guitarist Matt Smith and ex BOC drummer Gary!
Packed house at the Pickerel last night - great to be playing there again, thanks to everyone who came along.
We are back at the Pickerel! Our next gig sees us playing an old favourite for the first time in a fews years . . . so get your bouncing butts down to Stowmarket on Saturday 13th April!
Crazy night at the the Boars Head in Braintree, filled to capacity - well done Braintree folks!
