It is with great sadness that we announce that January 2010 will see The Dayglo Pirates' final gig with our singer/flautist/guitarist and front-man extraordinaire, Mr Paul Forrest. He is moving to Israel. For a project which began 'as a bit of a joke', we have achieved things beyond our wildest expectations. Not only have we all grown as musicians, we have become recognised as one of the best Tribute acts in the world. Over the years we have had several ex-members of Jethro Tull perform with us and some have become firm friends. The ultimate accolade came when Paul was asked to guest with Jethro Tull on their 40th Anniversary tour. So it's been a blast !
A big thank-you to all who have helped us, performed with us, complimented us and generally encouraged us on our way. Notably: Ian Anderson, Glenn Cornick, Clive Bunker, Barrie Barlow, Dee Palmer, Dave Pegg, Dave Rees, James Rees, Martin Webb, Aldo Tagliaferro, Ulla Hilger, Albert Villanueva, Xavi Folch, Steve Taylor, John Evans (and other members of DPAS), Dave Burnham, Tony Shettle and, of course, our partners, family and friends.
Thanks also for great gigs to (amongst others) Andy and Tiggy at Riffs, Dave Kitteridge, Mary at The Rock Bar, Lesley May, Raff Achour, Jerry Bird, Geoff Hunt, Charlie Croydon, and Denis Hill.
And last but not least, thanks go to past member Mr David Bott.

geostrehl: Do you guys and gals think Ian likes Steely Dan? I've been thinking about this recently. Ian has stated that he doesn't listen to much music, but I'm sure he's heard a lot of the Dan.

tryin2b: Hi Geostrehl U gotta luv Steely.have u heard "everything must go"? but i gotta say as a player, I don't feel the same groove. It's the difference between Cajun and Appallacian. I love them both

geostrehl: Everything Must Go is a fantastic album. Behind Tull, Steely Dan is my fav. It's busy and complicated, but not in a prog way (like Tull), but more in a jazz way. I just wonder what Ian thinks of Donald Fagen, and the other way around.

nonrabbit: Steely Dan were a huge part of my teenage years in the early 70's. Had every album - listened daily - dreamed of seeing them Live.
