These dates will be the last that 'Bodega' will peform with the current line up. We wish Norrie MacIver and June Naylor good luck and all best wishes as they move on to pastures new - and of course not forgetting Gillian Chalmers who has already left to take up a teaching post in Spain.
All the very best guys and girls. Thanks for some great times, the fantastic music, lots of laughs along the way and especially the friendship!!!
Tia, Ross and Lorne are currently in the process of bringing together a new and (we think) very exciting line up, although, sadly in many ways, the new group is unlikely to be know as Bodega.
Watch this space for more details of this exciting development.
Special thanks from us all to Dietmar Haslinger for his fantastic support (both for Bodega and Scottish music in general) and for putting this final 'Bodega' tour together. You're a true gentleman Hasi.
And from me personally - well....thanks for some great memories and fun. It's been a priviledge I can assure you and I look forward to working with the new line-up.
Safe travels and good luck everyone.
