Sharing this important message (thank you to gigsANDtours.com for this great overview);
‘On Thursday 2nd July, the UK music industry comes together under the banner of #LetTheMusicPlay in order to highlight the crisis faced by the live music sector. The purpose of the campaign is to make as loud a noise as possible to ensure the Government gets the message that the UK live music industry must be protected.
The first stage of the campaign is a letter to secretary of state for DCMS Oliver Dowden which now has signatures from hundreds of artists including Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi, Take That, Sam Smith, Beverley Knight, Eric Clapton, Muse etc, alongside thousands of crew.
But the main event needs everyone to get involved. We need to protect our venues, our workforce, and the infrastructure and companies that make up this business. Please share photos/ videos on social media of the last gig you went to using the hashtag #LetTheMusicPlay
The Live music industry added £4.5bn to the economy in 2019 and supported 210,000 jobs across the country.
Up to 50% of the live music industry’s workforce is facing unemployment, leading to a catastrophic loss of skills.
The UK is home to the most popular arenas in the world yet they are set to lose five million visitors due to COVID-19.
Music festivals support 85,000 jobs, but with the entire summer cancelled, many are currently facing collapse.
90% of grassroots music venues are under threat of closure. They need a £50 million cash injection to ensure they do not go out of business.’

Hello from Gordy and the GO NOW! band!
It’s our pleasure to present to you a classic Lock Down video, performed by GO NOW! (the band that celebrates the music of The Moody Blues). “I Really Haven’t Got The Time” Written by Mike Pinder. Recorded remotely at various locations and brought together in one glorious video to lift spirits. The music of The Moody Blues transcends genres, and offers the broader musical palette an almost limitless spectrum of options. From the retrospective classical compositions, to delicate ballads, to straight Rock & Roll… and then this – a high tempo shuffle that just makes your feet tap.
AND……be sure to stop by here again  (and all of our other platforms as well) on Saturday 20 June when we will be revealing some very exciting news and info regarding our special LIVE stream concert coming this Autumn from GO NOW!
Thanks again to everyone for all of the support!

Hello to all,

As everyone is aware, the current worldwide Coronvirus (Covid-19) concern is having a far reaching impact to all of our daily lives as well as our businesses.

It’s impact on the music industry along with global travel has made it necessary to postpone our GO NOW! US tour until a later date.

And most importantly, we wish you good health and peace of mind during this challenging time.

Gordy sat down recently for a quick chat with presenter Jacqui Rushton of Uckfield FM radio.
And yes……..we know that this link says ‘Good Now!’.
Gotta say we think it’s quite an excellent description of the band!

A glimpse before the gig at The Albany Theatre in Coventry UK…….

One of the greatest things a drummer can experience is someone setting their kit up. Thank you Pic!

 

 


 

GO NOW! will kick off their 2020 tour on 5th of March at The Albany Theatre in Coventry (UK).

The band has a very exciting schedule this year that includes dates in both the UK and US.

Check out the GIGS/TOUR listing shown on this page to grab your tickets to a show.

 

 

 

 

 

Recently Gordy did a very enjoyable interview with Christian Wolf for an upcoming GO NOW!  show in Torrance California on April 11.
His dog Harley barked in the background halfway through and that got more comments than anything he said about the upcoming dates!

So as she stole the show… Here she is!
Oh and in case you’re interested here is the interview as well:

 

 

 

It’s been a long haul getting visas, but Nick and Patrick now have theirs. It’s great when the efforts of an entire team come together… Management, musicians, friends, family, Gordy’s dog Harley! It may seem like just a group of guys on stage, but there’s so much activity behind-the-scenes to make it all happen.
