A message of thanks from Brian Stringer…


The 2014 Canalised festival was a real success, and I’m sure 2015’s will be even better!

Yesterday, I published a post requesting suggestions for bands that might be good to play at the 2015 Brownhills Canalside Festival, which is to take place on Sunday, 28th June 2015 at the waterside in Silver Street.

Brian is organising the event, and was short on musical entertainment, so asked if I could help get the word out.

There have been loads of replies, and Brian has asked me to thank you all, and tell you that the matter is now settled.

He wrote back to me this afternoon:

Hi Bob.

Blimey mate I never realised the blog reached so many people!

I’ve been inundated with suggestions for bands for the 2015 Canalside Festival and on youtube I’ve done more auditions that Simon Cowell. Some very promising, but unfortunately not right for our gathering, others too expensive and others too that would need more space than we have on stage.

However I’m chuffed with the response and will be getting back to some of them after Monday.

I’d appreciated if you could put the word out that we are are now sorted. Thanks again for the power of theBlog.


Thanks to Brian for writing, and for his very, very kind words: an he’s right. The power of this blog is surprising and even shocks me! Thanks to all of you who replied. This is what community is all about.

Cheers to you all. Now, roll on summer…
