So sad to hear that the Railway in Ipswich has closed its doors in the wake of the COVD outbreak. Playing the Railway always felt like an event, definitely one of our favourite venues. Stephen & Sue bought the pub back up to being one of the premier music venues in the South East, and we wish them all the best.
We hope you are are well and safe during these curious times! In case you haven't seen it you can view our first isolation video on our music page.
Hello people! Obviously the wellbeing of our fans, the band members and all the people we come in contact with has to take priority at the moment, so gig cancellations are, sadly, going to be common over the next few weeks / months. Keep an eye on the gig calendar on the left and our Facebook page for updates. We look forward to rocking out with you all again as soon as we can! Keep safe, you awesome bunch!
Our next gig at the Boars Head in Braintree will feature Darren from Hoaxx on lead vocals. This is the first time in BOC history that Paul will not be fronting the band! He will resume his duties at the following gig at the Pickerel in April.
A couple of new tracks to play to all you fine folks going to our Black Horse Gig on Fri 21st, one of which is the most requested song we have ever been asked for in the history of the band!
Okay Brighltingsea - you proved to be one of the most enthusiastic crowds we have ever played to! When the crowd start singing louder than the band you know it's going to be a great gig!
Our first gig at the Ark in Brantham last night - the result of a 'January Sale' where we sought a new venue to perform for a knock-down fee . . . and we had a blast! Thanks to all the people who showed up - great to see some of our regular followers alongside some new faces. We'll try and sort some more dates there soon.
Thank you all so much to everyone who came out to see us on our first gig with Jimmy . . . a great night at the Black Horse and a fabulous crowd as usual! This was our last gig of 2019 so we would like to wish you all a brilliant Christmas and New Year . . . your support means the world to us, we all look forward to seeing you in the new year.
We are very pleased to welcome Jimmy Cee to the band! Our new drummer has played with several bands including Rockslave, Time Out, Curious Penguin, Trash Monrow, Dookie and Stiff in the Morning . . . his first gig with us will be this Friday at the Black Horse in Ipswich so be sure to get your bloody bounce on with our new groovemeister!
Massive thanks to everyone who came along to Chris' last official gig with the band - we all had a blast playing at the Kings Arms in Frating, and indeed have had a blast playing with him for the last decade! Mr C will be missed!
Thanks to the brilliant Sudbury crowd in attendance last night at Chris' penultimate gig in the Prince of Wales, Sudbury. The big Chris Bash - his last official outing with the band - will be on Friday 29th November at the Kings Arms, Frating.
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.
