Paradise Filter webshop update

Many thanks to all of you who have visited www.paradisefilter.com. We have remixed “Pain in the Arse” from the Paradise Filter cd, now featuring Jimmy Hastings on flute. This version is exclusive to the Paradise Filter website, so when you visit you can listen to it. Also anyone buying anything from the online shop will be sent a free MP3 copy of this mix by email. We would like to thank our fans who came to the Mount Ephraim gig. It was a great turnout and we really enjoyed playing there again. A special thanks to Trevor and Dave and all the backstage crew for making it such a memorable event. Lets do it all again next year. Next up Monaco so see you there. Caravan.

Close to the Moon Festival cancelled

We have just received this statement from the Italian promoter. As a result we will not be playing in Italy this month, and our promoters are looking to reschedule for early next year!

“With deep regret we have to announce that for reasons entirely due to the local promoter, that has been in fault of its contractual obligations agreements, there are no more the conditions to proceed with the production of the Festival.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, for reasons that are beyond our control, first of all to the artists who gave us their wide availability, to the local companies and organizations on the territory that had given us their cooperation; and to our media partners and journalists that were working on side-events that would have enriched the festival; but above all, we apologize to all those who bought the tickets and made plans to attend the first edition of the festival.
We will request the local promoter to have the instructions for tickets refund public as soon as this is possible.”

 

Paradise Filter website update

We are in the process of updating the Paradise Filter website. We have put up a remixed instrumental version of “I will be there for you”, so that you can listen while you browse. We hope that you enjoy it and we are looking forward to the next gigs in Italy in July and Kent in August. Hope to see some of you there. Caravan.

The band played two gigs last month with Jimmy replacing Geoffrey as he was committed elsewhere .
Geoffrey will be back with the band for the Italy date in July .
Some of the arrangements were different with a Jazzier feel to some of the songs. The band haven’t played a group version of ‘ Love Song With Flute’
since 1971!
They also played an extra encore ‘Memory Lain Hugh’

We would like to thank everyone who came along to the recent gigs. We really appreciate your continuing support of the band. We loved playing and are looking forward to going to Italy in July and Kent in August. Hopefully we will see some of you there. Have a good summer. Caravan.

U.K. Gigs

we would like to thank all the fans for coming to the gigs over the last week. We really enjoyed playing and the response was fantastic everywhere. We would like to apologise to the fans at HRH Prog for the lack of merch in the auditorium. We know that some of you mentioned it. Unfortunately we had to sell through the official vendor who was situated at reception and nowhere near the gig. Unhelpfully, they closed the merch stand before we went on stage. All our products are available as usual  at www.paradisefilter.com . We are looking forward to playing in Soignies later in April, and Southampton and Maidstone, so hope to see some of you there. It has just been confirmed today that we will be playing in Monaco on 14th October so keep watching the website for updates. Thanks again for all your support. Caravan.
