New improved Roundel

It's all change at Castle Roundel.

Since 2005 we have played around 500 gigs all over the UK to a largely positive reception. Except in Shildon - they really didn't like us at all. It always adds to our despondancy when a crowd refuse to acknowledge the band then applaud the jukebox as we're packing up. I guess that you can't win them all eh?

In the last couple of years our performance has been consistently good too. Partly due to our long apprenticeship but mainly because we have graduated to playing better venues with more appreciative audiences. This combination always makes for a better show and everyone is happy. Even Loins.

This has also thrown up a problem (albeit a nice one) in that we find ourselves very much in demand. Bookings for the next year usually start in July and finish in October so we have to disappoint many venues. 

So, we have decided to tidy up our image and improve our game. The music will retain its usual core of Jam, Who, Kinks etc. but will stick more rigidly to the Mod formula alongside the visual aspect of the band with era correct clothes and stage equipment. We will also be focusing on a slicker and better presented show.

The idea behind all of this is that we would like to play better quality venues that are more comfortable and suitable both for us and our audience. We want each show to be more of an event - properly presented & looking and sounding great. This may well result in a downturn in corner-of-the-pub gigs but we believe that it's the way forward as a worrying amount of these smaller venues have disappeared of late.

Our plan is to try the new formula in 2019 and see how it pans out so please be patient with us. If the Roundel experience suffers we promise that we will revert to our previous incarnation ASAP

So what do you think dear friends?
