A busy 2018 ahead

Posted on Updated on

Hi everyone,

It has been a while since we kept you up to date but only because the AUJ have been busy preparing for what looks like a very busy 2018.

We were kept busy throughout the winter with a number of local gigs, typically entertaining the local Alresford town folk while they have been buying their Xmas trees, or providing a nice warm welcome out of the cold once “Santa came to Alresford“. And of course we’ve been at the open mic nights in The Cricketers.

We have been preparing a whole range of new material for your delight.  It mostly follows the punchy, rocky theme we are best known for.  So if you like a bit of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Oasis, The Blues Brothers and Bruno Mars then be sure to catch us somewhere this year.

Now that 2018 is in full swing, our gig season is starting up again at the end of March so be sure to come and see us.  Throughout the spring and early summer we will be performing at our usual events; on the main stage at the Alresford Watercress Festival and another local favourite, the Vineyards of Hampshire Wine Festival.

But first, our launch event for the season is the very exciting charity fundraiser in the Horse and Groom on 23rd March 2018.  We have 2 amazing support acts to get the night going and the AUJ hit the stage at 10pm.

We are excited to send out a very warm AUJ welcome to our two support acts

  • Olivia Tapuska – 8pm
  • Danielle Stewart – 9pm

Please come along and show your support for what will be a great evening full of musical, edible and beery/winey treats!

Hope to see all our loyal fans there!
