Update 17th March 2017
On Friday 3rd February 2017 I finally pushed the button on making the website live, this was to tie in with a guest appearance on Wycombe Sound’s punkarolla show broadcast between 8pm and 10pm on Friday 3rd February 2017 – see wycombesound.org.uk for more details.
As I write this, it is just over six weeks since the site was launched and the structure is starting to take shape.
My initial concentration is on a detailed looked back at 1977 for the 40th anniversary of this groundbreaking year in music from a national point of view, as well as High Wycombe.
What also became apparent was the wealth of gigs and live venues popping up in 1967 High Wycombe. So I’ll will taking a delve through the records of that year and publishing brief summaries of dates, bands and gigs that grace the town 50 years ago.
Significant gigs from other years will appear on a fairly random basis (i.e. when I get time).
I’ve also added a Gig Notice Board page for forthcoming gigs in the High Wycombe area. I’m guessing this will also evolve into links to venue and band websites, as well as registered users posting their own information. I will undoubtedly say this several times on these pages, but please support the live music venues in High Wycombe and perhaps one day the Council will consider opening up the Town Hall again for ‘rock concerts’?
A quick note about registration. I believe this is working OK but please email me at paul(at)wycombegigs.co.uk – replacing the (at) with @ with any problems. You can also use this email to send any information about past gig dates, band information, memories or memorabilia. I am genuinely excited to receive new leads on dates of gigs that have not been previously published or easily found on the internet. I will also stress that it can come from any year, although for the sake of my sanity, I am restricting my research to the electrified era (what ever that means?).
