|30 June 2017: The
gig at the Wyke Smugglers tomorrow night (1 July)
is cancelled. It was actually cancelled earlier
this year, but I forgot to take it off the list!
I am really sorry for any disappointment this
slip-up may cause :-(
2017: It was brought to my attention at
the gig at the Wyke Smugglers last Saturday Night
that I had unintentionally caused some confusion
with my last post. It was my intention to inform
that this gig was to be Steve's last gig with
Splinter, not that it was Splinter's
last gig of 2017!
have made it clearer that we will be completing
the gigs currently in the diary throughout 2017
(although the Gig at Finn's on Saturday 11 March
may have to be cancelled if our new Bass player
isn't ready by then).
the statement that probably caused this confusion
- that we will be back in 2018 - merely meant
that we would be back in 2018 with a fuller
diary, rather than the somewhat depleted diary we
have for 2017.
apologies for the confusion caused by my last
post and I hope I have made things clearer with
January 2017: It seems the only time I
post any news on this page it's bad news and
today is no different :-( Steve, our bass player
for the past two years, has announced he is
leaving Splinter and will play his last gig at
the Wyke Smugglers on Saturday 18 February.
Due to this
disappointing turn of events we have decided not
to take any more gigs for this year. Instead we
will be focusing our efforts on revitalising our
tired set-list and plan to come back with a bang
December 2015: The final gigs of 2015
(5/12 @ The Wyke Smugglers and 12/12 @ The Golden
Lion) are cancelled. Sorry for the late
notification, but these events are due to
unforseen and unavoidable circumstances. Keep an
eye on the gig page for news of next years gigs.
September 2015: The gig at Finn's on
Saturday 19 September has been cancelled due to
unforeseen circumstances. Sorry for the late
announcement any disappointment caused :-(
April 2015: All Moby's gigs have been
cancelled by the venue. Apparently this applies
to all rock bands, not just Splinter gigs.
However, two of the affected dates have been
filled with new gigs, so it's not a total
February 2015: The gig at Moby's on Sat
7 March has been rescheduled for Sat 14 March and
the gig at Moby's on Sat 25 April has been
rescheduled for Sat 2 May.
February 2015: Finally found a spare
minute to update the gig page today 2015
looks like its going to be another busy
year! Apologies if youve been looking to
see whats happening with the band, only to
find an expired gig list and no new info on the
site! But its been a quiet start to the
year for us (gig wise at least) so, if its
of any consolation, you havent missed
That said; we have a sad
announcement to make
(the Bass) has decided to leave Splinter to
pursue a new project. He will still be playing
with us for the next month or two as we search
for and rehearse with his replacement. We will
let you know when his last gig is and post more
details about his replacement as soon as we know.
