This is going to read like one of those letters you get from another family member at Christmas, but bear with!
Thanks so much to all the people who came out last night! To sell out the Tunbridge Wells Forum is a dream come true for a lot of musicians, so big ups to you lot! Suncharmer, Higgs and the Bosons and Paul Cheese were all tops and it was a great way to end the year! Thanks to The Forum for always putting on the Lamps Christmas show – we owe you a lot (and so do many others).
As many of you may be aware, we’ll be taking a little break next year – but please FEAR NOT – we will be back again! Keep liking this page, and as soon as something starts to happen you’ll be the first to know. Mike is releasing a new album next year, so whilst The Lamps take a break and you want some more music, you can see what’s going down with him over at Mike Wilton Music.
So now, it’s that time of year again when you look back at everything and we can certainly say that 2017 has been great for us. To be out supporting The Who again was just amazing and we’d like to thank them for giving us this unbelievable opportunity again. It was the biggest thrill and thanks to anyone on that tour who discovered us for the first time and digged it!
Thanks to all that have come to any of the concerts near or far, shared our music, bought merchandise, sung their hearts out and been generally Lamps interested.
We’d like to thank Lisa, our manager, who has provided us with some huge platforms over the years. Thanks to any promoters who have taken a chance and put us on stage. Thanks to all the people that have played in this band over the years in the early days (Bart Brummer, Jack Goldsmith, Matt Geary, Box).
Most of all, thanks to you. If we’ve added a little sunshine to your lives, that’s our job done. We’ll meet again!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
Mike, James & Matt
