Billy Walton Band Blog #4: Winding Down The Tour

One of the highlights of the tour has been our show in Newcastle at the Cluny. The WT Feaster Band has a real following in this town and they packed the club. This is a highly regarded venue that has an amazing amount of talent coming through. It’s always fun to play these type of venues. 

Aynsley Lister Blog: Life on the Road

Dan Patlansky Blog #4: The Acoustic Tour

After finishing up with our final electric shows for a while, we began prepping for our first ever acoustic tour. The thought of this has given me many sleepless nights, for one reason. Acoustic guitars are for men!
