Nashville In The Round
Hosted by Gasoline & Matches
Featuring First Time Flyers

We came across this fantastic idea, purely because of being big fans of First Time Flyers, whom we came across playing at the CarFest Pub Stage and really liked them. Catching them on a headline tour after that at The Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham, it was one of our favourite gigs of last year, so any chance of seeing them, were in! And the idea seemed a bit different, so we came to the Symphony Hall to see what it’s all about, and really glad we did. These nights are organised by Sally Rea Morris and Stephen Marks, who apart from being a couple, are the country band Gasoline & Matches, and mighty good they are too. The idea is that they invite other country bands and artists to an informal, acoustic environment, telling the audience about their songs and themselves. Anecdotes and performing their own stuff and joining the hosts, it really is a cracking idea, and to be able to go and talk to the participants during a break is great.

With First Time Flyers debut album on the horizon, after a mega year last year, opening for the likes of The Boss and The Chicks, and sold-out headline tour, the future looks very promising. But having witnessed Gasoline & Matches, their vocals are very impressive and will be on our to do list when they play live next. In fact, it would be nice to see these two cracking bands tour together, now that would be another great night. But back to the Nashville In The Round, if you like any kind of country, do yourself a favour, if you are in the area, go and witness one of these cracking nights.
