CC Smugglers + guests
+All Our Exes Live in Texas
7.45pm, Friday 20th October, Bedford Esquires
We are very pleased to announce that CC Smugglers will be coming back to Hitchin on Friday 20thst October having sold out their previous visit at club 85 and a storming show the Rhythms of The World festival in 2015.
Following the success of their single ‘Rhythm’, which made BBC Radio 2’s playlist, along with live sessions on the station and BBC 6 Music, and an incredible couple of years on the live scene with soldout headline shows across the UK and Europe, festival appearances including a headline set on Latitude Festival’s BBC Introducing Stage, and opening for the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show, Bruce Springsteen and Ward Thomas, among others – CC Smugglers have released their brand new single ‘Dirty Money’ to stream and download worldwide.
In the words of lead vocalist & songwriter Richie Prynne:
“The song is about remembering that even though in today’s consumer-driven world, it’s easy to think that having enough money will make you happy. Happiness is a state of mind, not a collection of possessions or a certain number in your bank account. As touring musicians trying to make a name for ourselves this is very competitive and demanding industry, it is important to remember. Someone recently said to me “Richie, why the hell are you writing songs like this, we badly need some more money.” My response is, yes a business needs capital, but if I really needed money, I would probably go and get a job that paid lots. Happiness goes way deeper than business capital and I think it’s good to remind ourselves. This song is us reminding ourselves.”
Tickets are £10 advance, on sale Wednesday 21st June 10am available online from Seetickets, Bar 85 and all the regular Club 85 ticket outlets
