Christmas Saved!

Huge thanks to The Hampden Arms and The Victoria for offering to host Buckler’s Reel Christmas show 2019, after it looked like Christmas might have to be cancelled. The weather might oblige with pretty snow and we’ll certainly do our seasonal best to give you one of the best Yuletide nights ever if you can get to one of our gigs in December. If you absolutely can’t make it, then we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas; thanks to all who booked us this year and to all who came along to support us in 2019. All the best for 2020 and we’ll see you soon.

Wild Meadows was a great event and success and we were honoured to play our part in it. The band is heading to Littlehampton next before returning to East Sussex. They really seem to like us over there. Come and say hi soon 🙂

Of course it was great fun down on the farm and we’re looking forward to going back very soon. Our new venue gig at The Welly in Seaford was lovely. New faces and old, plus welcoming hosts meant we really enjoyed ourselves. Buckler’s Lite are very busy now, before the full band rocks up at The Alex, Worthing. All the details on our gig calendar. Keep on folk-rockin’ 🙂

The Old Chook Shed rockin’, Mac’s farm

It’s nearly time for the famous Sausage and Cider Night down on Mac’s Farm. This is a highly popular ticketed evening so if you haven’t done so already, follow the link in our gig calendar entry to sort it. We’re really looking forward to it, but before that we’re at the fantastic Old Boot in Seaford. Hope you can make one or both gigs.

We’re pleased to say that a couple of new venues have been added for later this year. East and West Sussex so that’s good news for everyone. We’ve now only got room in October for the full band otherwise booking next year. Buckler’s Lite have more availability so just get in touch. See you soon.

Durrington rocks!

We’re looking for gigs in May, June, October and December. Do you need a band? Do you know anyone who needs Buckler’s Reel? Pass on our details or get in touch directly. Not your average pub band. Never an average performance.

We are not what you’d call a function band, but we’ve played at quite a few weddings now, in a variety of venues, and they have been tremendous fun. The last one was very posh indeed (see photo) and worth the quite long drive! But it was great to gig in Worthing again last week, and Buckler’s Lite will still be local for St Patrick’s gigs before we head off to East Sussex again. All the details are on the gig calendar and if you want us to play your forthcoming event then please contact Sue asap 🙂

It was great to start the new year off at The Hope, Newhaven – so much energy just after Christmas et al! Now as you can see, the full band does not have any public bookings until 2nd March, so if you need your hit before then, ask your local publican to get in touch 🙂

Happy Christmas and a folk-rockin New Year to all our fans. Thanks for turning out in 2018 and we look forward to fresh songs and maybe some new venues in 2019. Our last gig of 2018 will be at The Old Boot, Seaford, where we always have a good time. See you there or soon we hope. 

November has seen us play twice in hometown Worthing. Big thank you if you came along. As I write, there is just one more local gig for the full band this year but a few more for the duo. New songs coming into the set have meant older favourites dropping out, but we’ll try not to lose them forever. With thoughts of Christmas gathering apace, a certain Fairytale song is about to be aired again! Hope to see you soon 🙂
